For Parents, this can sound like:
“He’s always fidgeting, zoning out and finds it hard to focus. It worries me that he is falling behind.”
“She is struggling with reading and writing. She tries so hard and it breaks my heart watching her lose all confidence.”
“He complains and cries and refuses to go to school. The teacher is always calling me like I know what to do.”
Every parent wants to see their child thrive in school. However, the reality of the traditional schooling system can make it difficult for children with learning differences to respond to classroom strategies.
When learning differences are not identified and addressed, children may suffer prolonged problems in life and throughout their learning journey.
The journey to diagnosis is often a long, expensive and emotional experience, with no clear end in sight for both the child and the parent.
At EdScreening, we believe that a learning difference shouldn’t be treated as a setback to a child’s academic journey. Instead, diverse needs should be catered to; all that’s missing are the right tools and strategies to support you, the parents, and the teachers, in identifying and understanding these individual differences.
EdScreening is designed for children aged 4-18 years. It is a simple to use, evidence-based questionnaire that screens for a variety of characteristics known to impact learning.
This could include specific learning disorders, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia; giftedness/high potential; ADHD; Autism; and other neurodiverse features. It is common for a child’s learning to be impacted by more than one learning difference. This is called a ‘twice-exceptional’ or ‘2e’ learner.
With the ability to consider a combination of potential learning barriers with just one evaluation, EdScreening removes the need for trial and error and having to bounce around between doctors and therapists.
The tool is fully-online, can be completed at your own pace, and has no waiting lists.
“When it takes so long to get any expert help for a struggling child through the currently available (medical) channels, this screening tool is a lifesaver and offers so much hope!” AC (Parent)
