Workplace Needs Assessment

A workplace needs assessment will not give a diagnosis. Diagnostic Assessment for Dyslexia is the only way that dyslexia can be formally identified. Find out more about Diagnostic Assessments.

A workplace needs assessment is designed to identify reasonable adjustments that can be implemented to support a dyslexic employee in the workplace.

We offer a comprehensive service, including a pre survey which ensures that any time with you is used as efficiently as possible.

A workplace needs assessment is designed to identify reasonable adjustments that can be implemented to support a dyslexic employee in the workplace. It is a semi-formal remote interview with an experienced workplace needs assessor to look at the specific job role of an individual, and the difficulties that they have as a result of their dyslexia. The assessor will consider the specific concerns and requirements of the organisation before making recommendations for reasonable adjustments.

The employee must have been in the job role for more than 6 weeks for us to carry out this assessment. A copy of the employees job description must be provided.

These assessments are carried out remotely.

The format consists of a 15 minute private conversation with the line manager at the beginning of the assessment then followed by a separate meeting with the employee that may last up to 1hr 45 mins. These take place via video conferencing tool e.g Zoom/Microsoft Teams. We would aim to schedule the assessment within 5/6 weeks of receiving the booking details.

Our assessors

We only use workplace assessors who have completed their training with the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) and have satisfied our requirements to be a 'competent' person in this field. The BDA has led the professional development of workplace assessment so employers have the satisfaction of knowing they are in the safe hands of the leading institute.

The cost

The British Dyslexia Association offer a Workplace Needs Assessment for £375 (+ VAT).
