At School

Assessment
Involvement is likely to be clarified with parents and/or the school via a free telephone consultation in order to ensure assessment and support fulfills the needs of the individual. Assessment and support could include: direct work with the child, parental interview, school contact. A report would be provided detailing the child's learning profile, together with appropriate recommendations.

An assessment typically involves:

  • Completing a background questionnaire
  • Meeting with a Chartered Educational Psychologist
  • Participating with a number of cognitive (problem solving) tests, together with further literacy related (reading and spelling) tests (lasting up to 2 hours.) Assessment is conducted in a relaxed and friendly way that is comfortable for you.
  • A report is provided in under 10 days (and if in the Sixth Form a report might enable students to access a Needs Assessment for Disability Student Allowance, resulting in resources to assist with their dyslexic or particular learning needs).
  • Children and students with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other needs  are shown a strength and weakness profile, followed by a report with recommendations.

Advice and Support

  • Awareness Raising courses lead by an Educational Psychologist and briefings which can include an explanation of what dyslexia is and how it can affect individuals, an outline of the skills and abilities of dyslexic people, presenting strategies for both individuals, teaching staff. This can also be organised for other learning difficulties. Schools usually contact us directly for training needs.
  • Email and phone contact is possible after receiving the report and many clients get in touch for brief advice at a later time.
