About Us

I-DARE was founded in the year 1999 by a group of experienced and dedicated remedial therapists.

It is an independent teaching and assessment centre which provides support for children, aged 5-16 years with specific learning difficulties.

At I-DARE, we aim to restore self-confidence and self-reliance by improving reading, writing, spelling, numeracy and memory skills, combined with a sensitive understanding, so enabling students to realize their full potential.
