Dyslexia was only formally recognized in New Zealand in 2007. Dyslexia is described as a significant, persistent difficulty with reading, spelling and writing skills.

Since the formal recognition of Dyslexia many programmes have been introduced to support these students, however many students still struggle to read, write and spell at age expected levels. Often these students have struggled since before they started school and their difficulties do not diminish over time. The longer a child struggles the greater the chances of developing anxiety, poor self-esteem, frustration, meltdowns or just feeling unhappy most of the time.

Whether or not your child has diagnosis of Dyslexia or you just know he or she is struggling, with reading, writing, spelling, language or anxiety, our programmes are individualised to fill in the gaps and improve the body and brain connections. Often a child will have difficulties other than the academic skills which are shown in the learning pyramid.
