Symptoms of special educational needs

Most adults and children will display some of these to a lesser or greater extent but if you identify several occurring frequently, you may wish to seek further help and ensure there is nothing else that may be causing the issues.

If you are concerned about anything I can offer various psychological and educational learning assessments to determine what might be causing the issue.




A lack of pleasure in (or avoidance of) reading

Problems with writing, messy presentation indecipherable paintings

Clumsiness - bumping into things, poor spatial awareness and perhaps an inability to hop or to jump properly

Not enjoying school

Disorganisation - late settling to work, last to pack-up

Being easily distracted

Generating distraction

Reluctance to do homework

Not getting on with other children - perhaps avoiding social contact altogether

Not thriving at school
