Awaiting an Assessment?

A diagnosis is the first step in the right direction

If you’ve struggled to get a diagnosis for your child you may be confused, upset and frustrated. Maybe you’ve been experiencing challenging behaviour or just don’t know where to turn. We are here to help you.

Children who have undiagnosed difficulties with their learning or behaviour can struggle in a wide variety of ways and this often has a devastating impact for the whole family.

  • Is your child experiencing difficulties in school?
  • Are you getting poor feedback at parents evenings about your child’s behaviour or progress? 
  • Is the school struggling to meet your child’s needs?
  • Has your request for a referral been passed back to the school leaving you where you first started?

By the time parents get to us they are often frustrated, upset and losing hope. At Inspired Learners we provide clear and straightforward diagnostic assessments of your child’s numeracy, literacy and learning capabilities. Working alongside your family we carry out an investigation of learning ability.

Understanding your child’s unique development needs are the first steps towards helping them achieve their full potential and we are here to help.

We want to help families improve their wellbeing and mental health by providing advice and support strategies at home to help them. We understand that having answers about exactly what your child is struggling with is the first step to peace of mind.

We offer a full range of short diagnostic assessments which last between 1½ – 2 hours and will include short movement and snack breaks. Most assessments can usually be completed in one session. This will depend on how your child is feeling on the day. We are well used to dealing with the most reluctant pupils so that’s not something you need to worry about.

The session will consist of the assessments and other possible supplementary items depending on the assessor’s findings and time constraints. All assessments come with follow up guidance with clear and actionable advice.

Already Had An Assessment?

Identifying your child’s particular learning or behavioural challenges are the first step towards better educational achievement.

At Inspired Learners we are here to support both the child and their family progress after diagnosis. 

Many parents receive a diagnosis and are unsure about how to move forward. What do they do next? They know there is a problem but they haven’t been offered any solutions. They often don’t know how to support their child. They also may not fully understand their child’s needs. 

Parents often face many complex and challenging situations as a result of assessment. 

  • If your child is anxious, has low resilience and is unhappy at home this can have a ripple effect on the rest of the family.  
  • If your child is not independent, many parents often feel guilty and inadequate.  
  • Maybe your child has already had an assessment but doesn’t meet the criteria for support? If the school is unable to provide the support required your child may fall through the gap.

What Our Learners & Parents Are Saying

After coming to Inspired Learners, our son has gained confidence in his speech and language skills and has been able to use building blocks to improve his processing skills and speed.

The supportive way in which the teaching is delivered allows our son to develop at his own pace. We thank Inspired Learners for their continued and valued support for our son.

Aimee makes the work fun and engaging by playing games and finding out my son’s interests. This makes work enjoyable and improves his self confidence.

I think Hayley is the best tutor ever. She is kind, helpful and funny. She teaches me everything – well everything I didn’t know before! For example: She taught me what prepositions are and what pronouns are, and she taught me many more!

We do my homework together, we read together and what’s best of all we play games together. I really want Hayley to be my tutor forever and ever, no matter what.

Aimee has been tutoring our children for two years. Our children look forward to their sessions with Aimee where they can express their creativity and experience the fun in learning.
