Welcome to The SheiLa Ferrari Dyslexia Centre

Pathways to successful learning

A warm welcome to our website. Thank you for your interest in our Centre.

There is much to celebrate at The Sheila Ferrari Dyslexia Centre. Our Centre is a welcoming, happy place where people are helpful, considerate, and respectful of each other. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and talented team of specialist teachers and assessors, who have a passion to support children with specific learning difficulties. We strive to ensure that every child is celebrated, building their confidence and self-believe by supporting them on their learning journeys.

We work in partnership with parents, schools, and other educational settings to support children with their specific learning difficulties. We provide a happy, caring and effective learning environment, where expectations and standards are high. We treat all children as individuals, recognising their strengths and guiding them to use these to become better learners.

I hope you find what you are looking for on our website, but if not, perhaps you would like to visit us. Please get in touch and make an appointment – we will be happy to help.

Assessment Areas

A diagnostic assessment begins with the gathering of background information about your child’s development and education. This helps the assessor to understand the nature of the difficulties encountered so far.

The assessor carries out a range of standardised tests to establish your child’s learning profile and identify their personal areas of strength and weakness.

We have assessors in the following areas that will be able to assess your child for dyslexia:

  • London
  • Essex
  • Hertfordshire
  • Suffolk
  • Kent
  • Surrey


Thanks to the Sheila Ferrari Dyslexia Centre I got better with phonetics and I got a higher reading comprehension score than I have ever had before!
Coming to the Centre has helped 100% because my grades are higher.
It’s fun and its helped really, really a lot. I’ve got much better results in my tests.
A big thank you to everyone involved in my son’s assessment. He found it completely stress free and actually enjoyed it. The feedback session was very useful and I think it will help us greatly to support him in the future.
