Nicola Haarhoff

I am a qualified dyslexia therapist and foundation phase teacher with a specialisation in learning support. My passion is to help primary school learners improve their reading, spelling, and general language skills. I have a special interest in supporting learners diagnosed with Dyslexia, ADHD, ASD and mild intellectual disabilities (MID). The therapy on offer will focus on many aspects of reading composition, depending on a learner’s unique need, grade level and academic performance. Additional therapy offered includes, but is not limited to, general language difficulties. Services available in English and Afrikaans.


Stark Griffin Dyslexia Therapy (SGDT)

  • Dyslexia refers to a specific learning disability that affects reading and spelling abilities.
  • Dyslexia has multi-faceted symptoms that can range from mild to severe.
  • I provide diagnosis specific SDG therapy to Dyslexic learners.

Remedial therapy in language and reading difficulties

Therapy is provided to improve reading, spelling, comprehension, and writing abilities according to the learner’s age and grade level.

Academic support and exam preparation

I provide academic support and help with exam preparation for general school subjects for all primary school grades.

Perceptual and reading skills assessment

This assessment is done to identify the gaps in a learner’s perceptual and reading skills. Once the assessment is done, a tailored remedial therapy program will be provided.

School readiness assessment

  • School readiness refers to a learner’s ability to cope and succeed within the formal schooling sector (Grade 1).
  • I am trained to conduct the Optima School Readiness Assessment.
  • Detailed feedback will be provided once assessment is concluded.
  • Therapy can also be provided to help learners bridge the gaps that were identified within the assessment.

"Ek is die ma van n kind met ADHD, hy doen nie goed met nuwe mense of omgewings nie, maar hy was dadelik op sy gemak met Nicola.

Hy het uitgesien na al sy sessies. Nicola het op sy pas gewerk en hom laat voel dat elke klein tree vorentoe n oorwinning is, en dat hy dit kan doen.

Hy het in 'n kort rukkie baie lief geword vir haar, en onthou steeds wat hy haar geleer het. Sy is waarlik 'n aanwins, en elke kind sal baat vind by haar hulp."

"My daughter who has ADHD and dyslexia gravitated to Nicola from the first session.

She is extremely thorough, patient and kind which assisted our daughter in overcoming some of her learning barriers that had not yet been attended too which has greatly assisted her with grasping the fundamental building blocks and for that we are forever grateful."

We would love to hear from you
