From providing diagnostic tests to offering advice and signposting you to support services, we’re here to help individuals with dyslexia and dyscalculia.
What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a specific type of difficulty that is typically characterised by a range of strengths and weaknesses. Dyslexia can affect processing skills (such as dealing with information, or organisational tasks), reading, spelling, memory, understanding and in some cases mathematical ability. Each person with dyslexia can have different symptoms; there is not one single pattern of difficulty – everyone is different. Dyslexia is NOT related to intelligence!
There is often great focus on the challenges presented by dyslexia, yet with it can come great strengths with individuals often having excellent problem-solving skills, creativity and visual strengths. Many have very successful careers in creative and media industries, engineering, architecture, as well as the arts and entertainment. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with dyslexia or dyscalculia, we can help you explore your options.
