The Centre is now registered with CReSTeD
We are delighted to announce that following a successful inspection, the Dyslexia Teaching Centre is now registered with CReSTeD (The Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexia Pupils), whose aim is to help parents and also those who advise them to choose an educational establishment for children with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD).
The inspection report said:
‘A number of 1:1 lessons were observed, including one physiotherapy session. The good rapport between teachers and pupils was evident. The lessons were well prepared, relevant to age and need, and teaching and learning were seen to be taking place throughout. The pupils were fully engaged with the activities presented and given opportunities to make choices and to record their work in a variety of ways. Most importantly, the lessons were fun and full of good humour. This was multi-sensory teaching at its best.’
‘Parents spoken to were full of praise for the Dyslexia Teaching Centre. One, with three children who have been taught at the Centre, felt ‘incredibly lucky’ as this had made a ‘real difference’. Teachers were described as ‘kind and fun’. Children were ‘never labelled’ but equipped with skills needed to enhance their learning. The Saturday Reading Club, touch-typing classes and handwriting classes were much appreciated.
‘This was multi-sensory teaching at its best.’
Communication with teachers was described as ‘easy’ and parents felt well supported. They and the schools attended by their children are kept fully informed by the Centre and good advice is always given. Parents reported that lessons are well paced, with good content and that pupils are ‘never bored’. One mother described the Centre as ‘excellent’ and that ‘it has changed her daughter, so that she now enjoys learning.’ Parents felt that lessons are ‘good value for money’. In summing up the Centre, one parent simply added, “I love it!”’
