Welcome to Dyslexia Herts

Working together to ensure that individuals with dyslexia are empowered and able to achieve their goals in education or the workplace.

COVID-19 Update

Dyslexia Herts is closed until further notice in order to ensure that we play our part in ensuring everyone stays safe.

We also have to be guided by our professional bodies, including the SpLD assessment Standards Committee (SASC). These guidelines mean that we are unable to offer assessment sessions online. They have to be held in a confidential and face to face setting or the results would not be reliable. This means, unfortunately, that we have had to cancel all existing bookings. We will be able to resume work when permitted by public health guidance and will be in touch to rearrange your assessment or book you in.
 
We have been supporting children, young people and adults with dyslexia in Herts, Beds and Bucks and surrounding areas for almost 9 years now, as well as working with schools, colleges, universities and employers. We send our best wishes to all our clients and their families and look forward to working with you all again soon.
 
Our Level 7 Diploma In Teaching & Assessing Learners with Specific Learning Differences  Course is scheduled to start in September 2020. You can register your interest or apply for a place online.
 
If you have any enquiries please contact us and we will be in touch  when we are able to re-open. Please also check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for helpful advice and information.

Employers

Dyslexia and other specific learning differences are common. Around 1 in 7 people (more than 15% of people in the UK) are neurodivergent.   Neurodiverse individuals bring unique thinking skills and talents to teams, which can give businesses a competitive edge.
We believe that an understanding of specific learning differences enables employers and employees as well as the organisation to improve performance and productivity by nurturing neurodiversity in the workplace.
Dyslexia Herts  offers a range of services for employers including assessment, support, consultancy and training.

Educational Institutions

More than 15% of people in the UK are neurodivergent, meaning that the brain functions, learns and processes information differently.

We offer assessment, consultancy and training services for schools, colleges and universities.
