Specific Learning Differences (sometimes referred to as Specific Learning Difficulties or Academic Skill Disorders) are a range of conditions that affect the individual’s ability to learn in normal contexts by traditional methods these include Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia.

These challenges are not due to intellectual impairment but rather to processing difficulties and, often, this is reflected in an uneven learning profile where certain areas of learning are unexpectedly behind other areas. Areas often affected include reading, written language, number skills and / or co-ordination.

Our Occupational Therapist helped me think about what I could do at home and at school to compliment what was happening at SPOT. Her sessions are well structured . She also makes the sessions a lot of fun and developed a strong friendship bond with my child.
