Diagnostic Assessments

Clients wishing to book a diagnostic assessment:

Due to the recent Government announcements, our policy continues to be as before, to keep our staff, volunteers, suppliers, customers and supporters safe. Therefore, the BDA will not be scheduling any face to face assessments until April 2021. We are now scheduling assessments for April 2021 onwards.

We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you understand that our priority has to be the safety of our clients and assessors.

A Diagnostic Assessment is the only way that dyslexia can be formally identified. This assessment will also 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.
