Research suggests that by involving more of the senses, especially touch and movement, the dyslexic brain creates more memories supporting the visual and auditory pathways. We provide a structured approach to learning which includes:

  • Diagnostic assessment and the development of an individual education plan
  • Small class sizes of no more than 12 students
  • Daily tutoring with a ratio of 1:5
  • 1:1 tutoring
  • Specific technology training
  • School holiday workshops

Other services


We advocate together with families, your child's mainstream school and the Ministry of Education to provide parity with students non-dyslexic peers in the classroom. The framework for this in New Zealand is to work with the Resource Teacher Learning and Behaviour (RTLB) service to develop an Individual Education Plan (IEP). This will allow your child to receive instruction at their current level of functioning, with accommodations that will target their most urgent learning gaps. Book a meeting

Diagnostic testing

Educational psychology report's are often written in specialist language and can be confusing for parents and teachers. We can meet with you to decode any diagnostic reports you may have, and work with you on an individual education plan for your child. If you don't have a specialist report, we can run a robust range of testing methods to help you understand your child's unique learning challenges. Learn more
