A full report on Emerson House is available on the website of CReSTeD, the Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic Pupils, or can be found by clicking here.

The independent report includes the following observations:

“Emerson House is an oasis of relaxed learning within a busy city. Behind that relaxed style, however, lies a great deal of care and knowledge.”

“Pupils were engaged in their learning and enjoying their lessons. Their explanations of what, and how, they learn were impressive.”

There is excellent support for children with specific needs and other overlapping difficulties are recognised and supported. Their emotional health and self-esteem are seen as indivisible from academic progress.”

“A group of pupils chatted easily about their experiences...Emerson House is important to them and is enabling them in more ways than improved literacy, numeracy and ICT skills. They look forward to their lessons there. Pupils support each other well and share pleasure in others’ achievements and success.”

“Parents were contacted and all were immensely positive about the effect that Emerson House had on their children...their comments speak for themselves:..

    ‘I wish all dyslexic children could get that help. Children feel motivated - supported. Initially he didn’t want to go..They really are specialists. They are very special.’”
