Assessment for dyslexia and dyscalculia for school / parents.
"If you are concerned about your child's progress in maths and/or literacy, I would have no hesitaiton in recommending Denise. There are many good assessors of dyslexia, among which she is one, but finding someone who can explore/rule out either Dyscalculia or maths difficulties as an aspect of Dyslexia, is a rare find. Her reports are affirming, readable, full of practical advice and excellent value for money.'

"I dropped my daughter off for her assessment and she enjoyed it a lot. We found out she has moderate dyslexia and it is such a relief. The school has been helpful and started putting Denise's recommendations in place. We have started playing some of the games at home she suggested to help 'Sofia' with spellings. Now she looks forward to getting her weekly spelling list and I still can't quite believe it!"
'Since being with Denise, we have seen a big improvement in 'Georgia's confidence, so much so that she won the headteachers award at school for spellings! She has taught 'Georgia' many coping strategies....she now feels a lot more empowered to cope with the struggles of dyslexia. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Denise. She is a credit to your association.' [British Dyslexia Association].

'As parents we feel Denise has made a huge difference to 'Chloe's' confidence and has helped her find strategies for the future. During SAT's, Denise was able to work on exam strategies and support me negotiating appropriate Access Arrangements.'
' Her lessons are really fun, I wish my lessons at school were as fun!'
"When I had to do writing I got stuck and didn't know where to start. Now I know how to plan writing and I am telling my friends what to do too!" Thanks Denise"

'The assessment experience:
The process was extremely smooth, clear and easy to understand from setting up the appointment to attending it. My son was made to feel extremely comfortable and although the assessment was long, he came away feeling positive knowing that Denise would do her absolute best to help him. We are very grateful to Denise for her positive support - it is such a refreshing change.
The assessment report:

(From a parent whose daughter is performing within an average band at school, but whose measured IQ I found to be above average, with underlying phonological processing weakness. She is a well compensated dyslexic, and performance is therefore below expectations!)
Thank you so much for J's report, it is amazingly thorough! It is great to have my suspicions confirmed and be able to move forward being able to target J's support.
Thank you so much for all your help,
'Thank you to Mrs C and son for the surprise cakes! I did wonder what I was signing for when the postman arrived with the big white box! Yum!'
We have lots more testimonials! I think the best testimony though is that we get lots of recommendations and referrals. Coast Education reports go a step further, and we are determined to help all students, children and parents find a way forward. Sometimes this means guiding the school with more supportive measures, sometimes it means we recommend an application for an EHCP. Whatever it takes, you have come to us for help, and it is our mission to provide that help.
