EDUCATION SUPPORT EDINBURGH

Education Support Edinburgh offers tailored and holistic support to children and young people struggling at school and their families.

  • Support driven – We provide support for young people who need help with their school experience.

  • Strategy Orientated – We have a tailored and holistic approach to learning and a fun and creative philosophy.
  • Listening Focused – We listen to the young person and centre our support around their needs.
  • Community – We believe that everyone learns and processes differently and that these processing differences should be celebrated and accepted rather than being ‘fixed’ or treated as a disability.
  • Vision – Our vision is to build a strong community, raising awareness of neuro-diversity and championing the voices of our young people.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” By Albert Einstein.

Podcast

The education system and dyslexia: A view from inside and out by Chrissie Grant

Listen
“Chrissie understood my daughter’s needs and her different way of thinking. She helped her to have a more structured approach. She regularly sent articles about subjects she liked to increase her reading.”
Dad of teenage daughter
“My son immediately liked Chrissie, her enthusiasm and optimism.  He did not mind her coming to teach him and guide him through his English curriculum once a week for more than a year. I could hear him laughing and I thought that was a good thing. In the end, she helped him get a B in N5 English.”
Mum of school leaver
“I would not have passed my exams without Chrissie’s help, she helped me organise and structure my thoughts.”
S6 student
“Chrissie managed to boost my son’s confidence. He thought he would never manage and would fail his exams. He found it difficult to understand what the requirements were and how to plan for them. Chrissie was able to help him with that”.
Parent of S3 student
