Dyslexia Tuition in Croydon
Specialist Personalised Tuition at an affordable price

At Dyslexia Support and Outreach Service, our aim is to provide support – through Personalised - Accessible - Structured - Supportive programmes, together with proficiency in technology. 

Specialist Dyslexia and SpLD Tuition:
targeted at Dyslexic Learners and learners with SpLD, accessed from home, reviewed and checked both online and face to face 


What can you expect?

Assessment, both initial and ongoing, is key, as every dyslexic learner has his/her own profile. One learner may find acquiring basic reading skills a huge obstacle to any progress; another learner may find basic reading skills to be okay, but spelling very difficult and achieving reading fluency awkward. Underlying ability, vocabulary skills and processing skills, including memory, speed and phonological awareness are also useful to identify, as different approaches will need to be taken and strengths
developed to compensate for weaknesses. Identification of overlapping difficulties would also help determine the most appropriate programmes and support.

We work with parents once a profile has been established – some parents may want their children to move straight on to technology if they feel their handwriting will only progress with a huge amount of time and input, feeling this could be better used e.g., developing composition skills using a PC/laptop. Other parents may be reluctant to take this route – so ultimately it would be their decision, although they would be given as much information as available as to the potential outcomes of these decisions.

Programmes are delivered in a small group setting with access from home (depending on programmes used). 

English Tuition working with reasonable adjustments (Exam Access Arrangement) as identified at school.

There is no one programme that fits all profiles, but programmes available we use that cover the greatest number of situations are:



It can be used for any age, especially as reinforcement for learners using either Units of Sound or Fresh Start. 
  • Several programmes or word-lists are available, including the new National Curriculum and Secondary School vocabulary lists
  • Personalised lists can be created so that words from other programmes can be practised using a variety of games so that the same words can be over-learned in a multi-sensory way
