LS Dyslexia: Dyslexia assessments in Leeds and surrounding areas. 

I am able to offer dyslexia assessments to adults and children aged 7+, providing a full diagnostic report with recommendations suitable for school, college and the workplace. I can also provide DSA reports to ensure that support is in place for university.

I am a specialist teacher and a member of The Dyslexia Guild with a current Assessment Practising Certificate. I have a wide range of experience teaching and assessing adults and children and I provide a friendly and professional service.

The cost of a full diagnostic assessment is £380. I am happy to travel to your home/school/college/workplace or I have access to other locations which may suit you or your child better. The written report is produced within 2 weeks of the assessment and a follow-up consultation can be arranged to discuss the report and the recommendations.

​If you would like to find out more about dyslexia assessments then please get in touch for a friendly and informal chat.

SELFA Charity

SELFA was set-up in 2007 as ‘Skipton Extended Learning for All’ (Registered Charity Number 1124020) by Chief Officer, Emma Pears. The Charity provided an inclusive holiday club and some holiday workshops for primary-aged children. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and now supports over 400 children and young people aged 4-19.

SELFA has a packed calendar, including a range of health and wellbeing programmes, peer support groups, targeted holiday workshops, trips and residential breaks.  In March 2017 ‘Skipton Extended Learning for All’ was incorporated as ‘SELFA’, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Registered Number 1169686).

Our vision
A community where all children and young people are celebrated and know they belong.

Our mission
SELFA is a charity that supports children and families experiencing vulnerabilities to build resilience, thrive and achieve.

Who do we support?
We receive referrals for children who are facing a range of adverse childhood experiences.  For those accessing our services in the last year:

46% had emotional/behavioural needs
22% had autistic spectrum disorder
21% had learning disabilities
17% are young carers
10% have physical health issues
They often have low self-esteem, lack confidence and are socially isolated.

Our social objectives for the children and young people we work with are to:

Encourage independence

Give children a sense of belonging
Build resilience
Promote aspirations

SELFA run a full programme of activities for school-age children (4-19) who live or attend school in North Yorkshire. This includes health and wellbeing programmes, peer support groups, targeted holiday workshops and trips & residentials.
