It's really hard when your child is struggling to keep up at school.
Do you suspect that dyslexia is the reason ?
Dyslexia is hereditary so if a close relative is dyslexic then this is something you should investigate further.
If your child has failed their Year 1 phonics test then this is something you should investigate further.
Other signs are:
speech and language problems
not clapping to a rhythm
not being able to identify or produce rhyming words
not picking up reading like their classmates
learning spellings for a test and then forgetting them
struggling with writing
struggling with times tables, telling the time and word problems in maths
This is not an exhaustive list so if you have any concerns, please contact me for advice.
I have been working in the field of dyslexia for over 12 years. Dyslexia is a frustrating condition with children having unique strengths, but with weaknesses which continually trip them up at school. I have helped many children improve their reading, spelling and writing skills so that they gain confidence and achieve success in their learning and exams .

Blog posts: I have written many blog posts where I have answered questions that parents have about dyslexia.
I carry out full diagnostic reports to determine whether your child has a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and attention as appropriate for your child.
1 to 1 tuition for all ages to develop the skills your child needs to succeed at school/college or university.
I can carry out a screening to check if dyslexia is likely prior to paying out for a full diagnostic report if required. I can also identify why your child has failed their Year 1 /2 Phonics Test and advise on the next steps.
