Learning Support

When it comes to learning, there is no one size fits all method. Each child is different and has their own unique learning style. Oftentimes, children who learn differently than their peers are left behind and experience gaps in their learning. In fact, it is estimated that 1 in 5 children and young people require extra support for their learning. Learning support helps children to become successful and independent learners by providing an individualised approach to learning. 

What is Learning Support?

Learning Support is an individualised learning approach that consists of activities and strategies that target a child’s specific needs. As some children have a different learning style than their siblings or peers, our learning facilitators seek to understand the child’s personal learning style and teach in a way they learn best.This includes using movement, games and multi-sensory approaches that best suit the child’s specific learning style to bridge the learning gaps. Lessons are designed to utilise the child’s strengths and interests to guide them to become confident and independent learners.

Developing learning confidence

In Learning Support, the emphasis is on a child’s personal progress. We work at the child’s own pace and we recognise and celebrate every little step forward. We aim to help the child develop a healthy level of confidence and a new found joy for learning by  providing a safe and positive environment for the child. A confident learner is a successful learner.

About the tests

The Dyslexia Screening Tests are a range of nationally-normed tests designed by Dr. Angela Fawcett and Prof. Rod Nicolson of the University of Sheffield. They are designed to be used as a screening instrument, and form a valuable first step in deciding whether to request a further full assessment by an appropriately qualified educational/clinical psychologist. The test can also be used as a basis for  identifying appropriate support strategies which can be used to guide the development of in-school support for the child.

An overall ‘at risk’ index for likely literacy difficulties is provided, as well as a profile of scores on a range of skills such as measures of literacy (including reading, spelling, phonological discrimination), as well as working memory, spatial memory, vocabulary, and motor skill. 

The Dyslexia Early Screening Test (DEST-2)  is used for ages 4:6 to 6:5 years,

The Dyslexia Screening Test – Junior (DST-J) is used for ages 6:6 to 11:5 years

The Dyslexia Screening Test – Secondary (DST-S) is used for ages 11:6 to 16:5 years.
