support for dyslexia & specific learning differences

SpLDs have particular difficulties, which may include spelling, acquiring fluent reading and writing skills and/or manipulating numbers which may indicate their performance is well below their abilities in other areas. They may also have problems with working memory, organisational skills, receptive and expressive language or oral and auditory skills, maintaining concentration and co-ordination.

How we can help

Dyslexia is by far the most common SpLD.  Pronounce Languages prides itself on providing multisensory lessons for dyslexia sufferers.  It is thought as many as 1 in 5 people may suffer with some form of dyslexia and this can be a common reason for people believing they cannot learn a language.  Here at Pronounce, we simply change the way we do things to make it work for you.  We are also happy to make any beneficial adjustments for dyspraxia, dyscalculia and attention deficit disorder.

Your lessons can be adapted according to your preferences.  We will work together to discover the best strategies to improve your organisation, information retention and reading.  We will undertake an assessment to find out how you learn best to ensure you walk away feeling a real sense of achievement.

We are extremely proud to offer consultations from a tutor with qualifications and experience specifically related to supporting these Specific Learning Differences.  Visit our Tutors page to find out more. 

Using different coloured backgrounds can aid your reading.  Pastel colours are especially good.  All of our materials are available in different colours and sans serif fonts (which are easier to read for dyslexic students) upon request.

Don’t be embarrassed to talk about your dyslexia. Embrace it and allow us to help you to realise your full potential.
