When does a child qualify for exam concessions?

You might be asking, “What is exam concessions?” Well, to explain it in the best way possible I would say that it is when extra time to read or write is given to a learner this also includes a scribe and reader if needed.

Take a few minutes and answer the following questions:

  1. Does your child struggle with the following when reading?
    a. Reversal of letters, for example, ‘b’ and ‘d’;
    b. Reading of sight words – can read it today, but tomorrow it seems difficult;
    c. Comprehension;
    d. Omitting syllables (either beginning, middle, or end of words);
    e. Reading the first part or a letter of a word and then make up their own words.
  2. Does your child struggle with the following when writing?
    a. Reversal of letters, for example ‘b’ and ‘d’;
    b. Staying on the lines;
    c. Letter formation;
    d. Only write parts of words (leaving out syllables);
    e. Pen / Pencil grip;
  3. Does your child struggle with concentration?
    a. Daydreaming;
    b. Struggle to sit still and focus on the work he/she is busy with;
    c. Teacher complains about task completion;
  4. Does your child experience dyslexia symptoms?
