Thanks again for allocating her to our school.

Dyscalculia Assessments and Teaching
Our dyslexia specialist teachers can assess for, teach and support children with dyscalculia. People with this specific learning difficulty struggle to process number concepts and mastering basic numeracy skills.
Our team can conduct assessments, provide professional development for staff, and offer strategies to help in the day-to-day teaching of dyscalculic pupils. Training, audits, staff support and guidance for children with dyscalculia can be provided by our AMBDA qualified specialists.
We can also help your staff to spot indicators of dyscalculia and co-occurring difficulties, such as dyspraxia, to understand the particular problems faced by those with these conditions and offer support to help the child progress and move forward in their learning.
Small Group Interventions
It can be extremely frustrating for pupils who have difficulties in reading and writing. Our dyslexia specialists will work in your school for two hours per week, with a group of six children in lower KS2 and six children in upper KS2.
This support will help pupils to develop their confidence in all aspects of reading performance, spelling difficulties and with verbal and visual processing.
Exam Access Arrangements
Access arrangements, which are undertaken by a qualified assessor, ensure that pupils are able to access exams, tests and assessments, and have the same opportunity to demonstrate their skills and abilities as other pupils.
The One Education team support schools to make sure pupils achieve their full potential in exams by completing assessments to determine access to:
- A reader
- Extra time to complete examinations
- Modified papers
