Reading and writing difficulties?
English-speaking in Denmark - are you worried about your child’s reading and writing development? Maybe you are wondering whether he or she might be dyslexic?
We can assess your or your child’s reading and writing in English and decide whether or not dyslexia is the cause of the problems. We will produce a report in either Danish or English including thorough recommendations on how best to support your child’s reading and writing development. We can also advise you on supportive computer programs and devices.
The assessment comprises standardized tests in oral reading and word decoding together with a number of important tests in phonological awareness, oral spelling, listening comprehension and digit span. The assessment is performed as 2 x 1½ hour sessions and, if you and your child wish, a parent may also attend.
After receiving the report parents are invited to a meeting in order to discuss its contents and ask any question you may have.

We are a Danish family posted in Ghana. We have three children who all attend the International school in Accra. Since starting school our eldest son Victor has had reading and writing difficulties. We therefore contacted ’Nyt Mod’ in order to assess Victor for dyslexia. Since Victor has never attended a Danish school, we needed ’Nyt Mod’ to perform the assessment in English. Liselotte Kulpa agreed to do so, and also to write the report in English to make it possible for the International School to read the report and estimate its recommendations.
We have been most satisfied with the open and professional way in which Liselotte worked with our son. The English report is written in a way that is readable and intelligible for us parents who are now about to understand what dyslexia means to our son and his schoolwork. The English-speaking teachers who have read the report also praise it for being clear and of direct benefit to them in their work with our son.
Therefore we can fully recommend other families who need a reading and writing assessment of their child in English to contact ’Nyt Mod’.
Once again Liselotte, thank you so much for your good work.

We can highly recommend "Nyt Mod" who has helped our bilingual daughter by teaching in English after methods for dyslexic children.
"Nyt Mod" has motivated Julie to read and write on a daily basis. She has improved tremendously and feels much more confident and happy with school work.
Julie was also taught to use IT tools which are a great help both at school and home.
After "Nyt Mod" diagnosed our daughther with dyslexia, her own school finally accepted the challange and are now providing better support, for which we're very grateful.
