Support for Children

GoLexia is an excellent resource in terms of support for children and young people in education. We are able to screen, diagnose and offer one-to-one tuition via an individually tailored programme.

Tution usually takes place at the home of the child, in a familiar and comfortable setting.

First of all, we will arrange an informal meeting with you and your child to discuss their strengths, areas of weakness, and to determine how we can best support them. We will explain and demonstrate the resources we use and discover more about your child's interests, likes and dislikes, in order to personalise our programme. Once we have agreed on a suitable date and time, we can begin our tailored tuition sessions.

These sessions will involve a range of fun, interactive and multi-sensory activities, that build upon the learner’s strengths and support the development of their skills.

“My 9 year-old son’s reading age was below 6 years when tested at school, but after 3 months of individual tuition from GoLexia, not only is his reading age now measurable, but also his comprehension age has shot up to 11 years 2 months. And his self-esteem has improved no end!”
Mrs. B. , Monmouthshire

“I recently attended a training course delivered by GoLexia and found it interesting, stimulating and interactive. Loved the way the course leader interacted with us and valued our input.”

“Having dyslexia and Asperger’s Syndrome made it hard work on my degree course. But with specialist one-to-one tuition, the written work became less challenging and I stopped dreading deadlines. I graduated in the summer with a 2:1, which I know I would not have achieved without the support of GoLexia.”
S.C., Cardiff

“The course leader was very knowledgeable and engaging. She gave everyone a chance to have their say and respected the fact that, as teaching assistants, we understand our pupils’ needs and have a great deal of input into their education.”
Teaching Assistant, Newport

“We were so worried that our daughter was not achieving her potential at school but had been told that she wasn’t ‘low enough’ to be tested for dyslexia. Thankfully, a friend put us in touch with GoLexia and after a diagnostic assessment and advice from them, we now have the confidence to be able to talk to the SENCo about her difficulties and what school should be doing to help her.”
Dr. T., Cardiff

“I’ve had one-to-one support from various individuals during my degree courses, but none of them have ‘got me’ the way Eileen, from GoLexia, does. Now I am doing a Masters degree, it’s great to know that she understands my dyslexia and the way I approach writing.”
C.B. Barry

“GoLexia helped me get a 2:1 in my degree – thanks to the tuition and support I received from Eileen at GoLexia, I was able to complete my assignments and finish my degree in Modern Music at Newport Uni.”
Seth Cutler

"I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge how impressed we were with Eileen. She carried out the assessment with much tact and sensitivity and used every opportunity to strengthen my sons self esteem and confidence. Her calm presence was very reassuring for both my son and for me."
