Student Support

SpLD Service is determined to continue supporting students, parents and educators throughout the duration of school closure because of COVID-19. During these challenging times SpLD Service will be extending its online services via Skype.

Parents of children with dyslexia are invited to contact a dyslexia specialist teacher for an online consultation to discuss and address specific concerns. Parents and students can request practical advice on how to extend learning at home.

Additionally, educators wishing to avail themselves from this service particularly in relation to dyslexia friendly measures are encouraged to also contact us.

When is support available?

In order to ensure that all students with dyslexia continue to receive the most effective and appropriate support, SpLD Service is now extending its service for the month of June (Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 12:00pm).

Parents and learners are invited to book a 30-minute online session with an SpLD team member during which any topic related to spelling, reading, writing or organisation can be discussed.

This is an opportunity which will enable your child to develop more confidence. Fill in the form and we will be in touch with you.
