Dyslexia Sparks, the region’s only registered dyslexia charity, has now safely reopened both of its centres as lockdown restrictions gradually ease.
The centres have reopened with COVID-19 secure measures in place, including social distancing procedures and strict additional hygiene precautions such as Perspex screens.
Diagnostic dyslexia assessments can also now be carried out by the charity for the first time since lockdown began in March. Assessments – which give a formal diagnosis of dyslexia where present – can only be carried out in person. The charity suspended assessments earlier this year to protect the safety and wellbeing of clients and in line with government guidance on lockdown measures.
Dyslexia Sparks delivers specialist tuition for adults as well as children but has most recently seen increased demand from parents in the region as schools remain closed for the majority of pupils. Jane Craig Founding Director, Dyslexia Sparks, said:
Dyslexia Sparks successfully and safely reopened their Melton centre earlier in the month and today completes the move to a ‘new normal’ for the organisation with the Hull centre now back in action. Jane Added:
As a registered charity, Dyslexia Sparks can help with financial support to eligible households in Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire. Further information is available by contacting the organisation direct on 01482 234856 and firstname.lastname@example.org .
