* Criteria for students at classes: Students with dyslexia only, the student is unable to start the literacy or numeracy class until they have either produced a formal indication of dyslexia or has demonstrated that they have clear indications of dyslexia difficulties.
Students may be put on both the numeracy or literacy waiting lists however when offered a place in either subject their decision on accepting the literacy or numeracy place will result them being taken off the list in the other subject. If student has a high level of need their school is to be approached via the parent for literacy or numeracy support within the school either by a WFDA tutor or the private list of dyslexia qualified tutors or from school’s discretion.
