The Dyscovery Centre

The Dyscovery Centre provides a specialist and high quality service.

The inter-disciplinary team helps individuals with living and learning difficulties, such as Developmental Co-ordination Disorder, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome.

We can help if you or your child has difficulties in the areas of reading, spelling, handwriting, organisation, co-ordination, behaviour, social skills or attention. Your child may have more than one difficulty as there is often an overlapping picture which can cause some confusion.

The team is led by Professor Amanda Kirby.

All members of the team are State Registered, qualified, experienced in learning difficulties, and adhere to professional standards and Codes of Practice.

The Dyscovery Centre is endorsed as an approved service provider to the NHS and private insurance companies.

The team helps people of all ages, and takes referrals from statutory and voluntary bodies as well as directly from individuals.

The benefits of using the Centre include:

  • Assessment by appropriate team members.
  • Services tailor-made to suit individual requirements.
  • Advice for schools, parents and adults.
  • Access to specialised resources and supporting information.
  • Training and education courses for professionals and the public

Clinics run once a month at the Centre.
