Attending the Centre

A Connective Learning session lasts for one hour and twice-weekly attendance is very strongly recommended. Poor short-term memory is often a symptom of dyslexia and a too-long gap between sessions can lead to some of the learning being lost, which will obviously hamper progress. Students can be disheartened and discouraged when progress is slow. Once per week is good, but twice per week is more than twice as good and results in a shorter and cheaper course in the long run.

Sessions are generally held on weekday afternoons, after school. There is no extra work to do between sessions and once the student has reached their target reading and spelling ages, they usually stop attending – their achievements are permanent and there should be no slipping back.
