Farnham Tuition has a wide experience of supporting young people and adults with Dyslexia. We understand the need to adapt teaching methods to suit individual learning styles. Whether teaching reading, writing, handwriting, spelling, vocabulary or phonics, learning becomes an enjoyable experience when using a variety of resources and a multi-sensory approach.


Signs of Dyslexia?

Signs of Dyslexia usually become apparent when a child starts school and begins to focus more on learning how to read and write. A person with dyslexia may:

  • Read and write at a slower pace than peers.
  • Confuse the order of letters in words.
  • Put letters the wrong way round – such as writing “b” instead of “d”.
  • Have poor or inconsistent spelling.
  • Understand information when told verbally, but have difficulty with information that’s written down.
  • Find it hard to carry out a sequence of directions.
  • Struggle with planning, organisation and time management.

If you think your child may have dyslexia, the first step is to speak to their teacher or their school’s Special  Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) about your concerns. They may be able to offer additional support to help your child if necessary. In addition to this course of action a consultation with Farnham tuition is recommended.
