Cognition and Learning

This area of need encompasses learning difficulties of all kinds.  For example, your child may have a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia, or they may have a moderate (MLD) or severe learning difficulty (SLD) such as Global Developmental Delay.  These difficulties may impact their academic progress.

Your child may already be receiving support from an Educational Psychologist or from a specialist Dyslexia Centre.  If this is the case they may have already completed a Dyslexia screener or completed a full Dyslexia Assessment.  If your child has been assessed as having Dyslexia, as having Dyslexic tendencies or as having a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) or if you have concerns about your child in regard to potential Dyslexia, please get in touch with the SENDCo; Mrs Abby Murray. 

The Whiteoak Academies provide "Dyslexia Friendly" classroom environments to benefit all our pupils and to support learning for all.
