There are roughly 299,000 children with learning disabilities in England & less than 10% attend special schools. That leaves a lot of children & young people in mainstream schools struggling with the national curriculum, that in itself is a challenge for any young person. But if that person has Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia or a combination of these, then reading, writing or understanding maths is an overwhelming challenge. Our learning Centre based in Canterbury supports these children & young people in mainstream schools to better learn in school. Using specialised workbooks & online platforms we offer support that goes hand in hand with the school curriculum. They are learning at our learning centre to better learn at school. So they too have a chance to reach their academic goals.
