During an initial meeting with parents we also conduct an informal assessment of the child to provide the basis for an open discussion about the educational support needed. We also work closely with a number of Educational Psychologists, Occupational therapists and other specialists who can provide a more detailed assessment of the child.

We use our own assessment in combination with other specialists’ reports to prepare a tailored programme of teaching for each child. This may recommend joining our full morning or afternoon Class Sessions for a period of time or, depending on the circumstances, setting up a programme of tutorials with one of our teachers.
