DYSLEXIA THERAPY

14

The Dyslexia and Learning Difficulty Center is part of the Child Learning and Enrichment Medical Center. Our aim is to support children and young adults who have Dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is probably the most common learning difficulty, affecting at least 20% of the population. It is easy to go undetected, thus early identification is essential. Dyslexia is a processing difficulty which often results in problems with:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Spelling
  • Maths
  • Organisation
  • Memory

 

Dyslexia can vary in degree of severity. It is not curable, but people with Dyslexia can be taught strategies in order to cope with it. That is why early identification and intervention is so important.

How to become a part of the program

The first step is to get your child assessed.

  • A licensed educational psychologist or doctor will carry out a full psycho-educational assessment of the child. This assessment will provide information on the child’s diagnosis.
  • Parents will receive a full report and feedback within 2 weeks of the assessment.
  • An Individualised Education Programme (IEP) is then developed for your child. This will include short, medium and long term goals. These goals will be assessed on a regular basis.
  • Follow up assessments are also recommended on a bi- or annual basis.
  • Support to the child, family and teachers.

 

Our services

  • We provide 1:1 Intervention for children and adults. These sessions are 1 hour in duration.
  • Group sessions (if deemed appropriate). These sessions are 11l2 to 2 hours in duration.

Dyslexia is multifaceted and often presents itself with other learning difficulties namely, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia. The Dyslexia and Learning Difficulty Center can provide support for all of these learning difficulties.
