We are working with schools to identify any students who are affected by dyslexia or other learning difficulties.

Staff from Empowered Learning visit schools and using validated software, they screen children for learning difficulties as well as areas of strength. Information gathered using the software is used by school staff to make the necessary adjustments to the learning environment for each child.

In 2016 we have screened all Year 7 & 8 students at Reporoa College(61 students) with Lucid Rapid and Lucid Ability to see which students are potentially affected with learning difficulties. 

  • 12 students showed a strong possibility of learning difficulties (20%)

  • The information gathered from the screening software will be used by the college SENCO to put in place Individual Education Plans,  apply for Special Assessment Conditions (SAC) for students if necessary, and some students will be referred on for further psychometric testing.

  • In 2017 we will visit other colleges in tha Taupo region to carry our similar screening working in collaboration with the school SENCOs.
