Dyslexia Assessments and Dyscalculia Testing
Dyslexia experts we make recommendations for extra time in exams, reasonable adjustments in selection for jobs and in the workplace for individuals with specific learning disabilities (SpLD). Our reports will enable those suffering from dyslexia to obtain reasonable adjustments such as extra time in exams, financial support from Student Finance England (for Disabled Students Allowance) and adaptations to their work demands (Funded by Access to Work). We deliver ongoing advice and support to help teachers and employers put in place strategies to ensure that those with dyslexia and dyscalculia are able to perform on a level playing field. Employers and educational institutions will require your to produce a full recent dyslexia diagnostic assessment. Employers, Student Finance England, the Department for Work and Pensions and Employment Tribunals all prefer that dyslexia assessments that are carried out by qualified chartered psychologists; Learn why they will not accept the results of self administered dyslexia screening tests as evidence of disability under the Equality Act 2010.

A full assessment will use a range of standardised tests to assess literacy, numeracy, language, memory and processing skills. The assessment will also test general language abilities, cognitive skills, and verbal reasoning. All these tests for adults and children will be administered and interpreted by a chartered psychologist specialising in dyslexia for a formal diagnosis of dyslexia, the full assessment will take around three hours. We produce high quality reports written in accordance with the Specific Learning Disability Working Group 2005/DfES Guidelines for the Assessment of specific learning disabilities in higher education as recommended by SpLD Assessments Standards Committee (SASC). Dyslexia is typically diagnosed by a chartered occupational psychologist, clinical psychologist or an educational psychologist. We are members of the British Dyslexia Association Click this link for more free information on diagnosing dyslexia.
Dyspraxia is sometimes called Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) we typically use the Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration as one of the tests to diagnose dyspraxia. The symptoms vary across individuals however, there is normally difficulty with coordination and fine motor movements. Some people find typing, ball games, tying shoelaces, riding a bicycle challenging. Dyspraxia sometimes occurs with other specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia.
Autism experts we carry out autism diagnosis and support for adults and children suffering from autism including high functioning autism (Aspergers Syndrome) at our Autism Assessment Centre. We set up personalised programmes so that sufferers can participate fully in education and employment. Assessment and diagnosis of autism is undertaken by a chartered psychologist using the gold standard assessment instruments such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2), the Diagnostic Interview for Social Communication (DISCO) and Autism Diagnostic Interview (ADI-R) this is supplemented by additional tests of autism spectrum disorders and intelligence. Recommendations for reasonable adjustments at work or placement at a particular educational establishment are then made with the assistance of tests such as the Adaptive Behaviour Assessment System (ABAS-3). In criminal proceedings our assessments consider the impact of autism on offending, sentencing and fitness to plead. More information on diagnosing autism can be found here.
