Dyslexia and Literacy Tuition

The new SEN Code of Practice (2015) for children and young people from 0-25 years places new demands on educationalists. Within the new framework, we seek to develop close relationships with your child’s school to bridge the gap so that every individual can achieve their true potential.

Specialist Maths Tuition

We provide one-to-one, duo or small group lessons weekly during the school day, after school or on Saturday morning

Study Skills

Act on Dyslexia recognises the importance of supporting students through every aspect of their education. Specialist study skills support can prove invaluable for students, not only those with specific learning difficulties, but those who may need extra support. We can help with:

> extended writing skills
> managing memory skills
> higher order reading and thinking skills
> revision and exam skills

Our aim is to encourage individuals to develop their confidence, having gained the skills necessary to become independent learners.

We also offer CPD Training and Consultancy Services for education institutions and companies in the West Midlands area.
