UPCOMING Events IN 2019
Dyslexia Assessments April 2019
The Manx Dyslexia Association is delighted to announce that we are arranging a visit to the Island, by Dr Jennie Guise, at the beginning of April. The purpose of her visit is to offer professional training and private assessments.
The MDA brought Dr Reid to the Island in September, when 150 teachers and 60 parents attended his presentations. Dr Guise has co-authored a book with Dr Reid and her husband, Nick Guise, which was recently published: Dyslexia Activities for Kids and Teens
Dr Guise runs a specialist Dyslexia centre in Edinburgh:
Parents should always speak to their child’s teachers and SENCO in the first instance, when there are concerns about learning differences. Schools and the Department of Education Sport and Culture have systems in place to support neurodiverse children in their learning.
The charge for a private assessment is in the region of £600. In order to secure an appointment with the psychologist please send a message, on our Facebook page, as soon as possible.
