‘Every Child and Young Person in the Rother Valley Matters’
Dyslexia is a common condition that affects the way the brain processes written and spoken language. It is a ‘specific learning difficulty’ which means it causes problems with certain abilities used for learning, such as spelling, reading and writing. Unlike a learning disability, intelligence isn't affected.
All schools in the locality hub have expertise in Specific Learning Needs, recognising, assessing and providing for. Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinators (SENDCos) will meet with class teachers, parents and Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) to devise a suitable programme for pupils. An Educational Psychologist (EP) assessment will be needed for a diagnosis of dyslexia.
Training is available at the Helen Arkell Centre in Frensham near Farnham. They also offer private assessments. Bursaries are available.
