A learning Centre supporting Children & Young People with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

Canterbury Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

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.

What we'll deliver:

  • Targeted educating
  • Learning support
  • Homework support

Why it's a great idea:

Children & young people will benefit knowing that having that extra support system is available. As well as relieving the stress of academic, family & peer pressure that is associated with have a learning disorder. Having our support helps with a young persons overall confidence & wellbeing.

Steps to get it done:

  • To acquire an adequate building
  • To buy the specialised workbooks, overlays, materials needed
  • To buy & set up computers for children to use specialised platform
  • Hire trained educationists

Support mainstream schools that do not have the resources to cater for children with learning disabilities.
