Neurodiversity and learning
Every learner, of any age may have challenges with learning. These may vary depending on their age and the demands on them. Some learners will have specific challenges where early support and guidance can make a real difference to their educational outcomes. This requires a person-centred approach.
Not everyone has or needs a diagnosis for support to be given.
Challenges with reading, spelling, maths, social and verbal interaction, speech and language, attention and motor coordination may not reach a threshold for a label, and learners in reality may have challenges in one or more areas. Also each learner will have strengths that need to recognised.
Some learners may benefit from gaining a diagnosis of Dyslexia, Dyspraxia (DCD), Autism Spectrum Condition, ADHD or Developmental Language Disorders (DLD). What is most important is to gain practical and timely support to maxmise talents and minimise challenges.
Here’s how we can help…
Identify all learners equitably
Not all learners arrive at education with a diagnosis or having been identified. Screening those at an entry point can reduce inequity.
Helping staff target support
Awareness raising of neurodiversity can help staff to minimise challenges and use universal design principles.
Being able to participate in education means you can be more productive and helps wellbeing.
We provide screening tools to help identify ADHD, ASC, DLD, Dyslexia, DCD (Dyspraxia), and Dyscalculia traits.
Person centered approach
Every learner is different and we need to recognise each person’s spiky profile of both strengths and challenges.
