Way to help your own child at home
Private Tuition is not an option for everyone so to support parents who want to tutor their children at home we have produced a number of resources and programmes. These include access to online phonic programmes, parent packs and videos explaining how to teach key concepts. We also offer a training course for parents, which gives you a detailed overview on how to support your dyslexic child throughout his or her education.
Downloadable video clips produced by a Dyslexia Specialist showing you how to teach spelling, reading and other skills.
