What we do

We provide support to children with learning difficulties in literacy / dyslexia who have been referred to us through the EA Psychology Service.

We work to improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills of children and young people.

Support from the Service can involve:

  • Teaching to help improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills;
  • Support on an individual basis depending on the child’s needs;
  • Guidance on how to access and use assistive technology to support literacy development;
  • Provision of information and resources to help parents support their children’s literacy development at home; 
  • Provision of training to schools in the areas of literacy difficulties; and 
  • Development of partnership working with parents and schools.

Help promote the work of the Literacy Service and the resources available by printing this poster and placing it around your school.
