Diagnostic Assessments for Dyslexia

Clients wishing to book a Diagnostic assessment for Dyslexia:

Our new Individual Assessment Service means that we will be able to put you in contact with a BDA Approved Assessor that can organise and carry out an assessment for you. We are unable to advise on their availability. Please note that most assessors are booking several months ahead as this is when they next have spaces. If it will be later than this it will be noted in the assessor’s biography. Assessors will provide a report following the assessment and this can take up to 1 month.

If the assessment is being funded by your child’s school, a local authority, a university, an organisation or your employer we will organise the assessment for you under our Corporate Assessment Service. Our assessors are booking several months in advance .

A Diagnostic Assessment for Dyslexia is the only way that dyslexia can be formally identified. We cannot assess for any other Specific Learning Difficulties such as Dyscalculia at this time.

As dyslexia is not a medical condition assessments are not covered by the NHS.

We assess from age 7 onwards to comply with the SASC guidelines (SpLD Assessment Standards Committee), this is the governing body for our specialist teacher assessors. There is quite a lot of reading and writing involved in a full diagnostic assessment and as some children learn to read later than others it would be inappropriate to put them through this lengthy process before age 7.

The assessment will provide a clearer picture of someone's cognitive profile and their strengths and weaknesses. This will help to ensure that any support put in place is as effective as possible.
