Did you know that 14% per cent of all school children suffer from learning disorders? In every classroom there are likely to be children with Specific Learning Difficulties. Children with Specific Learning Difficulties can do well in school if they are given the right learning support. Not just children but adults are affected but are not aware that their learning problems are caused by disabilities. However, very few schools offer adequate learning support to pupils and students with Specific Learning Difficulties. At workplaces there is even lesser recognition and support for adults with Learning Difficulties.

Assessment

Learning Difficulty Assessment

Does your child struggle with reading, spelling or writing? Do they mix up letters or jumble their sentences? Or perhaps they have trouble with numbers, symbols and maths? If so, they may suffer from a specific learning disorder, such as dyslexia or dyscalculia. Learning difficulties can severely hinder your child’s learning and enjoyment of school. This can lead to low self-esteem, anxiety or even depression. If you suspect that your child suffers from any type of learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, it is important to accurately identify the underlying problems and put in place effective intervention programs and strategies as early as possible in their education. The first step towards helping your child reach their full potential is to have them assessed by an Educational and Developmental Psychologist. This includes testing for dyslexia and the broader spectrum of learning difficulties.
What Does a Learning Difficulty Assessment Include?
You will receive:
  • An initial review of your child’s cognitive, social, family and emotional history
  • Standardised cognitive (IQ) test
  • Standardised achievement (academic) test
  • Other relevant assessment tools
  • Detailed assessment report
  • Tailored learning recommendations for school and home
  • Comprehensive feedback session to answer all your questions
The combined results from these tests provide insights that cannot be obtained by using any single test.
Cognitive testing identifies any underlying weaknesses in key skills such as:
  • Processing speed
  • Auditory processing
  • Verbal learning issues
  • Non-verbal learning issues
Achievement testing measures abilities in key academic areas such as:
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Spelling
  • Mathematics
  • Oral language
Here are some reasons to consider a Learning Difficulty Assessment for your child:
  • To discover what their learning potential is.
  • To reveal their “learning profile” – showing their particular strengths and weaknesses.
  • To find out if they have a learning disorder in reading, writing, maths or attention.
  • To identify the specific learning strategies and types of support they are most likely to benefit from – at home and at school.
  • To help them gain insight into their own learning ability.
So you can make informed decisions about their education.
