Dyslexia Assessments by a Specialist Assessor
Our team of highly qualified Specialist Assessors (HASAs) can diagnose dyslexia across the age range from age 8.
Dyslexia Assessments by an Educational Psychologist
We also offer assessments with Educational Psychologists (EPs). Our EPs are trained to assess for dyslexia in individuals who have a more complex range of possible learning differences, such as Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or significant mental health issues. We only recommend an EP when a learner has a complex range of needs. If there is involvement with a range of professionals already, then it may not be appropriate or beneficial for us to conduct further testing.
Educational Psychologists cannot diagnose Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), as these are medical conditions and require assessment by the appropriate health professionals.
Literacy Learning Assessments
For younger children (those aged below 8 are not yet old enough for a formal dyslexia diagnostic assessment), we offer a Literacy Learning Assessment with a Specialist Teacher. This is for children, primarily in school Years 1 and 2 (Key Stage One) and also early into Year 3, whose progress is giving cause for concern and who would benefit from additional and targeted intervention as outlined in the report recommendations.
