Support Parents

Happy girl with dyslexia

Welcome to our world.  It’s different here.

And that makes us proud.  We think "different" is a wonderful thing.  Which is why we’re doing everything we can to nurture and support anyone and everyone who learns differently.

We’ve loads of ideas to share.

We’re people who care.

We challenge conventions.

We get results.

Helen Arkell is a place where parents know that they will get all the help and support they need whatever the challenge.

We know that one of the greatest influences on children's success at school is the involvement of parents in their education.

When a child has a specific learning difficulty like dyslexia this involvement is even more crucial.

“The HELP! Parents’ Course changed our lives.  We don’t argue about school or homework any more.....We’ve started on a journey together and we know we will be climbing mountains together, not alone but supported by the team at Helen Arkell.  It’s a great feeling!”
