What's an SpLD?
It stands for Specific Learning Difficulty - though we prefer the word 'Difference' because that's what makes each person unique. It's the way we learn and process information and generally includes dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD/ADHD and high functioning autism. We all have stress at some point, but people with SpLDs are more prone, with lower confidence and self-esteem. Sometimes it's not an SpLD; perhaps it's anxiety, depression, a difference in processing or a combination of these things.
That's why we want to offer SpLD coaching: an on-line specialist who works individually with students on their learning journey, but also liaises with parents at the start to find the best subject tutors for their child.
Making a difference for SpLD
Life and learning can be hard for people with SpLDs. We want to make it a little bit easier. Actually, we want to make it a whole lot better, but we're starting small and working towards that big change.
The Learning Difference: SpLD Coaching is our first step to get there.
Being virtual or on-line is actually an advantage here because it makes our coaching accessible to more people, for example those with social anxiety or challenges that make a physical classroom difficult.
Best of all, it makes individualised coaching and tuition more affordable.
