Remote dyslexia assessment for Schools

The dyslexia assessment

An assessment is a useful step to understanding the obstacles that are restricting progress and self-belief. It helps all those involved to have a deeper understanding of how the person learns, processes and understands information. The assessment can provide an explanation for an individual’s difficulties in school, university or the workplace. Based upon the background information, attainment in tests and observations, the assessment will diagnose whether or not the client has dyslexia, resulting in a formal diagnosis. Even if there is insufficient evidence to support a diagnosis of dyslexia, you will receive a detailed report that provides information about the individual’s performance in areas assessed and outlines the strengths and areas for development. The report will make recommendations for supportive strategies and resources for use at home and within the classroom/university/work environment. Recommendations might include referrals to other professionals for further investigation. Click here to learn more about dyslexia assessment. Alternatively, click on the link below to contact us.
