Consultations for parents

Parents talking by video call

You may feel you don’t know what to do or what the next step is and need some help or advice. A consultation can give you that valuable time to talk through your concerns about your child’s learning.

The consultation is with an experienced professional who will discuss your concerns if you think your child may have dyslexia, or other difficulties with learning.

We can then work together to come to possible solutions. This may be an assessment or it may be guidance for you to speak to staff at your child’s school and voice your concerns.

The consultation can take place by video chat or telephone.

For new enquiries from 1 February, if you go on to book an assessment for your child, the cost of the consultation will be deducted from the assessment fee.

Parental coaching for children with anxiety

Children with specific learning difficulties (SpLD), such as dyslexia can often experience feelings of anxiety. When young children start showing signs of anxiety, it can be very stressful for you as a parent too. How do you help your child?

Parents can often feel stuck, lost and alone, not knowing how to help their children cope with and overcome anxiety – and yet, they are uniquely placed to help their young children to do just that.

We provide extra support for parents to help you become confident in your ability to support your child and help them build their self-esteem and overcome anxiety.

To achieve this, our professionals work in partnership with you to:

  • Create a safe space for you to share your experiences and feelings with no judgment
  • Get a better understanding of what is going on for your child when they feel anxious
  • Enhance your knowledge and skills to support your anxious child, and strengthen their confidence and self-esteem

Create a programme of work for you to help your child better manage and overcome anxiety.
