The founding belief of D-dats is that every child has the right to learn to read and write and to reach their full potential in all areas of their lives. Children with Specific Learning Difficulties, such as dyslexia, often need more specialised support to do this. D-dats is able to provide the specialist support that will help your child to do this – through one to one teaching on a specifically tailored programme, and through consulting and training in schools to enable them to give the best support possible.
D-dats offers a range of face to face services to parents and schools in Derby and Derbyshire. Phone, Email and Skype consultations are also available for people living outside of Derbyshire.
Services include Diagnostic Assessments, private tuition, consultancy, training and support. The website provides information and resources for parents and schools.
