Farnham Literary Festival talk – How to Foster a Love of Writing

We are delighted to be part of Farnham’s Literary Festival once again. Our own Claire Harvey, Head of Education, will be giving a talk entitled How to Foster a Love of Writing – Practical Strategies to Support Struggling or Reluctant Writers.

Please join us on Sunday 3 March, here at 24 West Street, from 10.30. Tickets are £5 with proceeds going to Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity.

This talk will briefly touch on some of the reasons why many learners with dyslexia and related specific learning difficulties struggle with writing and potentially become reluctant writers. But most importantly, this talk will provide attendees with simple, practical strategies, resources and activities that could be used to help improve the writing development of a weaker writer and encourage even the most reluctant writer to start writing and sharing all their wonderful ideas.

Book your place via EventBrite here.

New service for younger children – Literacy Learning Assessment

We are delighted to launch a new assessment service for children who are too young for a dyslexia diagnostic assessment. 

Our Literacy Learning Assessment is aimed at children in Years 1 and 2 (and early into Year 3) who are working below the level of their peers and whose progress is giving cause for concern.

This new service offers a non-diagnostic assessment, by a Helen Arkell Specialist Teacher of reading, writing and spelling skills, as well as some cognitive processing, in order to identify strengths and areas of development, as well as recommendations to support teaching and learning. As a result, appropriate early intervention can be delivered, rather than children having to wait until they are old enough for a formal dyslexia assessment.  

If you feel this would be useful for your child, there are more details and you can make an enquiry here.

We are able to offer financial assistance for this service to families on lower incomes.
