About Us

What is GoLexia?

GoLexia is an assessment and one-to-one support centre where children, young people and adults with specific learning difficulties can obtain expert tuition, advice and guidance.

What are Specific Learning Difficulties?

SpLD refers to a range of difficulties that includes dyslexia, dyscalculia, DCD (Developmental Co-ordination Disorder, also known as dyspraxia), Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and other similar differences. These are called ‘specific’ because they occur in people who are of average or above average cognitive ability and there have been many famous and successful people who have experienced and overcome these difficulties.

At GoLexia, we celebrate the differences in the ways people think and learn. Through careful assessment, both informal and formal, we establish each individual’s learning needs and, based on this, develop suitably structured, sequential learning and teaching programmes to support them. Our mission is to be instrumental in enabling each person to discover the key to unlocking their potential. We aim to support them in developing strategies they can use throughout their lives, in order to achieve their goals. All our staff are specialists in the field of SpLD, having achieved qualifications that are recognised by the BDA (British Dyslexia Association), PATOSS (Professional Association for Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties) and other related organisations. We employ a range of multi-sensory teaching methods that build upon the learner’s strengths and support the development of their skills, in a pleasant and comfortable environment.

What can GoLexia do for me?

FREE Initial Screening

GoLexia offers you a free initial screening test, to determine what sort of difficulties you may be experiencing. . This will include an informal chat about your concerns and expectations, and will be carried out in a confidential setting.

Diagnostic Assessment

If you decide that you want to take things further, we can offer a thorough diagnostic assessment that will demonstrate your strengths and areas of need. This is also conducted in a confidential and comfortable setting, and could be in your own home if you prefer.

Written Report

Following the diagnostic assessment, we will produce a formal written report giving a breakdown of the results of the assessment and their implications for education/work and offering suitable advice and guidance regarding strategies for work, living and learning.

One-to-One Tuition

Using the report as a basis, a structured, sequential, multi-sensory programme of intervention is then devised. Tuition and support is tailored specifically to the needs of the individual and implemented through one-to-one sessions with a suitably qualified tutor.
