EduHelp reveals each child's individual potential and strengths to help them achieve socially and academically


Helping all children achieve more!

  • We use the senses and different learning techniques to help children work within the schooling system.

  • "space practice" or "the interval approach" which EduHelp refers to as "delayed repetition" - repeating information over "spaced intervals" - learning a concept, taking a break (focusing on a new topic), return to the previous concept - over an extending period of time - using a cyclical approach (revisiting concepts and building knowledge).

  • read, write, comprehend and express with confidence


has a positive, unique and specialised approach to assist ALL children.

EduHelp believes in helping children work with their strengths to bridge the learning difference gap. There is no “quick fix” or making “problems disappear” because just like adults, children also have differences. It is not about creating an “A” learner it is about developing a child’s abilities and skills. No ability or skill is constant (hence why we call them “current abilities”) because these change and children progress.
