Parent Support

Online screening

This screening tool can help parents make decisions about appropriate ways to support their child with possible learning difficulties. Although online screening tools cannot provide a formal diagnosis of a Specific Learning Disorder such as Dyslexia, this tool can provide advice on what to do next. A version for adults concerned about their learning is currently in development.

Parent Guides

Auspeld produces two guides for parents: Understanding Learning Difficulties and Understanding Language Difficulties. These resources are designed to provide parents, caregivers, and/or family members of children with language and learning difficulties with a greater awareness and understanding of the impact language and learning difficulties can have on children during their school years. The Understanding Learning Difficulties parent guide has also been converted to a website, providing free access to a digital version of this incredibly useful resource. Printed copies of both the Understanding Learning Difficulties and Understanding Language Difficulties Parent Guides can be purchased from our bookshop.
