Learning and Literacy 

My child has difficulties with      
learning and literacy.

This can include:

        Reading and spelling 

        Learning new information and concepts 

        Working with numbers 

        Working memory 

        Concentration

        Some pupils may have conditions which are diagnosed such as Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) including dyslexia, dyspraxia or         ADHD.  Other pupils may present with difficulties that do not have a specific title but affect their learning in very real ways.
