Intensive Literacy Support for Children with and without Dyslexia

At TG Dyslexia we aim to improve children’s literacy and numeracy skills as well as raising their confidence to be enthusiastic learners. 

If your child has been diagnosed with dyslexia or is showing traits of dyslexia then why not send your child to TG Dyslexia Centre in Lisvane. Working closely with schools, it is now open 5 days a week, between 9am-3pm, during term time.

We are also offering Full Diagnostic Assessments and screening for all pupils.

About Tomorrow’s Generation

Our vision is… to develop lifelong learning so pupils may reach their own unique learning potential.  We recognise that Dyslexia is a challenge to individuals and their families.We are dedicated to traditional values such as attitudes, skills, knowledge, and responsibility but recognise that our pupils may not be traditional learners and may need specific help to improve.

To fulfil our vision… We provide an individualised and pro active curriculum which enhances self esteem, provides role models, optimises each child’s potential, develops a lifelong love of learning, builds personal responsibility, and promotes individual respect. We cherish our rich resources and pride ourselves in our commitment to the environment.

Fundamental to our vision… Is the fact that our success is measured by pupil’s individual achievement. We are committed to inclusion and fully support pupil’s reintegration into the mainstream environment when the child has developed the necessary skills to succeed. The recruitment of a highly skilled team; and the promotion of cutting edge resources in delivering our curriculum enables us to deliver a unique experience for all individuals who engage in the Tomorrows Generation learning experience.

Join Our Classes

Your child can attend our classes any weekday during the school term, from 9am-3pm.  Children attend for one day or two days per week with the permission of their headteacher.

We are based in the Tomorrow’s Generation Dyslexia Centre which is part of the Lisvane Old School Community Centre site. We provide a bright and welcoming learning environment with a large space for group work and small quiet areas for one-to-one work.  We have enough outside space for the children to play safely and we are close enough to our local park to have regular well-supervised visits there for play or study purposes.

There is no cost to your school as places are funded by parents, or sometimes by the LEA.  Tomorrow’s Generation is a registered charity and a non-profit organisation.  All fees go towards our running costs.

Working Closely With Schools

We aim to work closely with schools and help children to work on IEP / IDP targets as well as any targets we may identify via initial and ongoing teacher assessment. We also help to develop children’s key skills as outlined in the National Curriculum alongside a range of transferable skills to improve their confidence as a learner once back in school.  These might include organisation skills, mind mapping, note taking and ACE dictionary skills.  We aim to cover the core subjects of literacy and numeracy and also incorporate a range of foundation subjects within each term’s Topic lessons.

It is possible to note on the school register that a child who is attending our Centre is being released for an educational purpose.

How is progress monitored?

One of the characteristics of dyslexia is that progress in literacy can be slow with a greater need for reinforcement and over-learning. Initial assessments are made when pupils first attend Launchpad sessions to establish a starting point for teaching. We then measure progress in small, achievable steps relevant to the individual through personalised target setting.  Continuous assessment is made through observation and evaluation of each session as well as more formal assessment every term.  Pupil targets are shared with parents and schools and progress is discussed during parents’ meetings and in written reports during the academic year.

What about safeguarding?

We take safeguarding of pupils very seriously. We have safeguarding and child protection policies and staff attend regular training in order to stay up-to-date. Enhanced DBS checks are required for all staff, cover staff and volunteers. If a child is absent from our Centre on a day when they are due to attend, we notify their school.

How Much Does It Cost

There is no cost to your school as places are funded by parents, or sometimes by the LEA.  Tomorrow’s Generation is a registered charity and a non-profit organisation.  All fees go towards our running costs.

They will be taught in no more than groups of 8 and will get specialist tuition for £75 per day. 
Nessy subscription: £15 (annual subscription)
For children aged 7-11, we use Nessy Fingers and Nessy Reading and Spelling.

Who runs the sessions?

The sessions are run by our team of specialist staff who have many years
of experience of working with children who have dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties. We have up to eight children in the centre at a time, together with three members of staff. From time to time we welcome higher education students to the centre, either to observe or to work as volunteers.

Who is it suitable for?

Children aged 7-11 or 11-14 who have dyslexic-type difficulties, which mean that they are not making the expected progress with their literacy skills. We also offer study skills sessions for pupils in secondary school who need support in learning or revising for exams. 

They do not have to have a full diagnostic assessment of dyslexia in order to attend our centre.
