Supported Charity Bloomfield Learning Center

As a former student of the Bloomfield Learning Center link, at Guys Hospital in London, the first dedicated center in the World for children with learning disabilities, (pupil of Mrs Pick from age 9 traveling across London alone to attend the appointments) I support its vital role in providing learning support to children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities for families from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Guy's Hospital taken on my late visit to Bloomfields Learning Centre visiting staff in 2019

"Disadvantaged families often find it difficult to meet/or receive the funding required for prompt professional assessment (around £700) and the learning support for their children, leaving them vulnerable, and frustrated and can fall through the net."

I received support before there was the tools we have today including phonics, it was not a homework club I received learning learning support to reach a minimum standard, this included hearing tests which lead the experts to greater understanding.
