Little Learning Lab

A child’s journey with learning difficulties is best described as a jigsaw puzzle. There are so many facets to work through before determining the best pathway to support and manage their assistance. There are the difficulites in learning, school and specialist support, reports with confusing terminology, recommendations that may not be understandable or practical. Too many supports not connected ,not enough time and costly services . The ‘where do I go from here?’ quandary is a common one for parents facing these challenges.

That is why Lisa’s Little Learning Lab’ was created.

Assessments

A diagnostic Assessment in literacy and or numeracy will clearly show where your child is challenged with their learning and how far behind their chronological age they are which may or may not indicate a learning disability such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia or Dysgraphia. This gives clarity to the underlying gaps in their skill development and a focus for moving forward bridging the learning gap. Having identified the issue we can determine a learning plan and recommendations as per current best practice for home and school. ‘Early Intervention’ is the proven way to maximise your child’s results and achievement. Assessments are done at Love2learn by Lisa and can be used to further inform the class teacher and school about your child’s needs, give guidance to goals in their IEP or highlight the need to have one for your child. They are used by Lisa when you book in for class sessions or 1:1 intervention at Love2learn.

The report and recommendations will determine:

  • Strengths and challenges in given areas with the earliest point of difficulty highlighted as the starting point for intervention.
  • Reading, spelling, and numeracy standardised ages as a basis for retesting after intervention and giving an indication of the likelihood of a learning disability.
