The earlier a definite diagnosis is made - the sooner we can avert problems.
Psychological problems will ensue unless dyslexic difficulties are acknowledged and addressed.
Dyslexia testing can be carried out from as young as 4.5 years of age. There is no upper limit.
Although we specialise in dyslexia, a learning profile will benefit anyone - in education or in the workplace - who is failing to reach their potential.
At the end of the assessment, we explain exactly what we have found and make recommendations for remediation and arrangements for tests / exams.
Dyslexia is a lifelong condition. It is not a disease process, and as such, can't be cured. But knowing what you are dealing with, means you can highlight the positive aspects and largely overcome the negatives.
At the end of the assessment, we explain exactly what we have found and make
recommendations with regard to strategies for dealing with presenting difficulties. This is
delivered in easy to understand, jargon-free language.
The verbal debrief is followed up by a written report to your home address within
10 working days of the assessment.

There is no NHS provision to pay for an assessment. Occasionally (and it is rare) we receive a referral from a GP. In such cases, the fee is paid from practice funds.
Job Centres are supposed to assist with the unemployed person who has problems with written language difficulties. But they no longer cover our fees.
Employers are increasingly aware of dyslexia, as it is officially a 'disability'. Sometimes they will fund an assessment in full or in part. They often help with remediation costs too, in line with current disability legislation.
