- Dyslexia, unlike other learning difficulties, does not usually affect a child’s intellect. Dyslexia can present lifelong challenges within reading and writing on a day to day basis. Considering this, specialist support is offered to help aid improvement in all areas of daily learning practices, ensuring the child is able to be successful throughout school and work.
- Dyscalculia (DD) is a learning difficulty specifically diagnosed when a child struggles to understand the formation of numbers, process numerical calculations and has a general problem with a personal understanding of arithmetic. Generally, this can cause weaker skills within arithmetic and equally increase levels of anxiety, causing much undue stress.
- Dyspraxia (DCD), also known as developmental co-ordination disorder, is a physical condition that can affect a child’s day to day performance within specific areas for example, general activities, walking, drawing, writing and sports. Dyspraxia should not affect a child’s learning ability but can in turn cause many educational difficulties and will require specialist help.
