SEN, Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Specialist Tuition in Loughton
At Forest Learning we are proud to have a fully-inclusive ethos and a wealth of experience in teaching students with a range of needs. We truly care about ensuring that every child makes the level of progress he or she is truly capable of.
At Forest Learning we have professional teachers who are specially equipped to tutor students who are finding learning more challenging than others for a variety of reasons. Whether your child has been assessed by the school as having SEN or not, we will provide plenty of additional help and support.
We work on building confidence as well as skills as this can often become a barrier to progress and learning in itself. We can also screen for Dyslexia and Dyscalculia and identify problems which may be affecting your child’s learning.
We are experienced in teaching children with ADD, ADHD, Dyscalculia, Dyslexia, working memory problems, hearing problems and various medical problems to name a few. We firmly believe that
every child will learn if we teach them well.
We are fully aware that there are plenty of students having special educational needs, some of them identified by school, some by parents, and some simply falling through the cracks due to the current lack of funding in schools. At Forest Learning we are able to put in place the necessary additional support to enable them to reach their full potential.
We understand that every child is different and that by creating an individual learning program that suits them, they will respond in a much more positive way. We provide a warm, nurturing and caring environment and we aim to restore their confidence and build self-esteem. We support them in their learning by teaching them well using our unique methodology. This way they learn, make lasting progress and achieve their individual goals without getting dependent on the tutor. Our team is able to provide you with peace of mind, knowing that your child will get taught by a qualified teacher who care and understand them and their needs.
If your child has Dyslexia or other related specific tendencies, it does not mean that they have to get left behind when it comes to adequate tuition and learning. Our team is able to provide specialist tuition for students with Dyslexia at primary as well as secondary school level. We offer a Dyslexia Screening Service which is booked at a separate time and is carried out on a 1:1 basis. This is available to all children over 6 years of age. They do not need to be enrolled at Forest Learning to access this service. The screening takes about 1 hour and costs £120 which includes a detailed report for parents.
The Dyslexia Screener Report includes a Dyslexia Index which is an overall indicator of the extent to which a student’s profile of results matches that which is commonly found for people with Dyslexia. The values range from A (No signs of Dyslexia) to E (Severe Dyslexia). Whilst this is not an official diagnosis, it is a professionally respected test and many schools will accept it as an indication of Dyslexia whilst waiting for an Educational Psychologist assessment or arrange for further testing based on the result. It can be a useful start if you suspect that your child is experiencing barriers to their learning but are struggling to get help at school. This report is available on the day of the screening and may be shared with the student’s school should the parent wish to do so.
If you require a formal Dyslexia Assessment, this can be provided too. The Portfolio is an ideal follow-up assessment to the Dyslexia Screener for those pupils who may have been screened as having Dyslexic tendencies, or whose performance in literacy is causing concern. We produce a profile of strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide teaching at school and used during planning and delivering of tuition sessions at Forest Learning. The cost for the full Dyslexia Assessment including the report is £300.
We offer a Dyscalculia Screening Service which is booked at a separate time and is carried out on a 1:1 basis. This is available to all children aged 6 to 14 years of age. They do not need to be enrolled at Forest Learning to access this service. The screening takes about 30 minutes and costs £60 which includes a detailed report for parents. Whilst this is not an official diagnosis, it is a professionally respected test and many schools will accept it as an indication of Dyscalculia whilst waiting for an Educational Psychologist assessment or arrange for further testing based on the result. It can play an important part in helping teachers distinguish between those individuals who have poor maths attainment and those whose difficulties are associated with Dyscalculia. The report is available on the day of the screening and may be shared with the student’s school should the parent wish to do so.
