Learning Disorder Assessment

At Headstart, we specialise in learning assessments to identify a child’s profile of strengths and weaknesses, which may highlight a specific learning disorder (such as dyslexia). We do this using a combination of psychology and speech therapy assessment, with both occurring where necessary. 

Once we understand a child’s learning capacity and any difficulties preventing them from reaching that potential, we develop a plan for how to support them in their area of difficulty and extend their strengths. This involves a comprehensive report with recommendations for school and home.
