Below are some of the Frequently Asked Questions about Dyslexia tuition with GTC qualified Home Tuition Scotland Dyslexia tutors Glasgow:
My child is ‘falling behind’ and seems to have dyslexia. The help offered by the school isn’t making a bit of difference.
Currently, you can take guidance about applying for a Statement of additional support need, where the funding for specialist support is given by your Local Authority, rather than the school. Unfortunately this is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve, typically due to finance, and some Local Authorities have criteria that are very hard to meet, which may prove to be worthless. You can still apply for a Statement if you feel that these criteria would be unfair, and challenge any adverse decisions.
NB: The government is now streamlining the process into a single assessment and plan. It is planned for this to be in place by 2014. Until then, the existing system of Statements of additional support need will continue to apply.
