NumberShark® & WordShark® Homework Programs (one-off purchase fee)

$200 per term for assessment, programming and support (per program)

These programs are motivating computer programs that use games to teach and reinforce numeracy and literacy. They can be used either in conjunction with regular sessions or on their own.

The licensed programs are personalised to the child's skill level and should be monitored by our teachers to ensure that the program remains suitable for the child as they progress. If the programs are used on their own, it is recommended that the child attend 2-3 sessions per term ($110 per session/program) with our teachers to evaluate their progress and provide additional support. These sessions would generally occur in weeks 3, 6 and 9.

Dyslexia Diagnostic Testing $200

The Apps Learning Centre (TALC) provides a dyslexia diagnostic test which provides an accurate indicator which can be a cost effective pre-cursor to major testing.

The Dyslexia Screening Test from Pearson is aimed at primary and secondary school-aged children. Children are tested according to their age group, and include extra subtests which are particularly relevant to the age group.

The diagnostic tests provide a profile of strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide the development of in-school support for the child. These tests are designed for early identification of children who are at risk of reading failure so that they can be given extra support at school.
