Teaching Centres, other than schools, providing assessments and/or tuition for dyslexia (SpLD)

It isn't always necessary or desirable to change your child's school, sometimes extra help in a teaching centre might offer the best solution for your child.

Please note:
This is not a list of centres accredited by CReSTeD, over the coming months we will be sending our consultants to look into the provision available to assess them against our criteria.

Parents should approach a teaching centre with the same level of care and attention as a school or college.

The Louise Barnes Way

The Louise Barnes Way enables children and adults to read, write or spell using NLP techniques and 18 years of teaching experience and is extremely successful.

Louise's technique is to discover the WHY – why does a child or adult struggle to read or spell? Once those issues are identified Louise will work on overcoming them (usually within the first session) so their reading or spelling improves, their self-esteem and self-confidence grows and anxiety levels reduce.
