Screening for Dyslexia can often be conducted online and some carry a small cost from £30 - £50.
The benefit of using screening tools is that it is something that the individual can do on their own without the need for a professional qualification. A screening report can help the individual to realise their functional strengths and weaknesses helping them better understand their difficulties. The output report can also be useful to show an employer evidence of a difficulty being present and can help inform on the types of adjustment that can be considered to help a person in their role.
A checklist for dyslexic adults will not provide enough information for a diagnostic assessment, but it can be very useful in promoting a better self-understanding and a pointer towards future assessment needs.
The Adult Dyslexia Checklist contains questions that are predictive of dyslexia (as measured by prior diagnosis). In order to provide the most informative checklist, scores for each answer indicate the relative importance of that question. Alongside each line you can keep a tally of your score and at the end find a total.
