Our Work in Schools

We use our charitable funds to teach dyslexic children both at our Centre in Kensington and in their primary schools. The outreach programme, called the London Dyslexia Initiative, currently sends specialist tutors into five London primary schools, working with thirty-two children who are struggling with their literacy and their confidence.

Our partner schools in the outreach programme are: Ark Brunel Academy, Avondale Park Primary, and Colville Primary in Kensington and Chelsea and Addison Primary and Brackenbury Primary in Hammersmith and Fulham. Our work in these schools has been so successful that each school now contributes towards the costs from their special educational needs budget.

Dyslexia help for children in schools is highly variable. The average dyslexic child does not qualify for specialist help under the Special Educational Needs Act 2001 as they sit within the mild-moderate range of the dyslexia spectrum. They struggle to learn to read and write at the same pace as a non-dyslexic child. This impacts on their confidence and school experience. With low self-esteem dyslexic children are vulnerable to feeling disenfranchised from their school and community.
