As a qualified assessor, Sally can come in to your school to carry out assessments for exam access arrangements and discuss outcomes and options with the SENDCo.
EXAM ACCESS ASSESSMENTS & DYSLEXIA TRAINING FOR SCHOOLS
Sally can come to your school and carry out assessments for your students who may require exam access arrangements. She will then complete part 2 of the Form 8 documents and discuss options with the SENDCo who will then be able to submit the Form 8 via JCQ’s Access Arrangements Online.
Dyslexia awareness training
Sally can come in and deliver dyslexia awareness training to new staff or those who would like to update their knowledge in this area.
As dyslexia affects between 10-20% of people we can be sure that learners will benefit from staff having a greater understanding of the challenges they face and how we can help develop strategies to overcome these challenges.
“We have seen a big improvement in his written work, as well as his writing, but most impressive, has been his increase in self- confidence.”
“We were struggling with our 8 year old boy, as during the extra time doing home learning in 2020, it became apparent to us that he may have dyslexia. Along with that were his personal struggles, coming down to a lack of confidence in his ability to read and write at the expected rate of his peers. His frustration led to many a meltdown, with tears and tantrums. We thought we would give it a go with Sally, when she advertised her lessons. At first, because of the pandemic, these were delivered online, via zoom, and then face to face as soon as we were able to.
Right from the beginning, Sally has been able to capture his attention (and maintain it!) through using a variety of teaching and learning strategies that appeal to him. Her clever use of games and rewards have meant, that he doesn’t actually realise he is “working” at times! We have seen a big improvement in his written work, as well as his writing, but most impressive, has been his increase in self- confidence. This has shown through to his school work too, with his latest glowing report from school, saying how much better his concentration and effort is.
Sally shows him patience and understanding of his difficulties, and he is eager to attend his lesson every week, and he leaves feeling pleased with what he has accomplished.”
“I have been really impressed with her friendly manner and the fun way she has of encouraging him to complete tasks.”
“Sally is lovely, My 13 year old son and I are really pleased to have found her. I have been really impressed with her friendly manner and the fun way she has of encouraging him to complete tasks. She doesn’t focus on what he can’t do but praises him for what he can. The jokes help too!
For the first time my son is not actively avoiding work with a tutor and instead gets his things ready for the session.”
“My daughter is really enjoying her time with Sally”
“My daughter (aged 10) is really enjoying her time with Sally. I asked her what she has learned and she explained to me the different sounds between ‘cap’ and ‘cape’ – can you hear the difference Mom? She also then proceeded to spell them for me.
We would love to continue and potentially add extra sessions after this current term.”
