The benefits of our dyslexia tests include:
a) A choice of where we can assess you for dyslexia:
- At a time to suit you in your own home
- At our Centre
- At school, university or workplace
- Halfway between our Centre and your house in our mobile unit

Apart from providing Dyslexia tests at our Centre in Milford on Sea, we also offer home or workplace visits which many people have found convenient.

Our 'home territory' is the entire South Coast up to London and the Home Counties. But we have tested as far North as Birmingham, as far East as Canterbury and as far West as Plymouth. (We have even assessed clients from as far afield as Dubai, Australia and the Falklands, who have flown in especially for an assessment).

Counties covered are: Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Cornwall, Gloucestershire, West Sussex, East Sussex, Kent, Surrey, London, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Essex.

As a general rule of thumb, the Home Visit price on the Booking Form is based on travelling a maximum of 200 miles (round trip) from our Centre in Milford on Sea. Home Visits further away than this will be charged at a slightly higher rate, due to extra fuel costs and time away from the office.
b) Weekend dyslexia testing option (Sat or Sun), so school or work need not be missed
c) Reports written in clear English and dispatched within 10 working days of the dyslexia test
d) Option of fast turn-round - Reports can be fast-tracked if needed within 48 hours (an extra cost will apply in this case)
e) Highly qualified empathetic staffwith over 30 years experience in dyslexia.
 

Our dyslexia tests are aimed at anyone of any age.

  The earlier a definite diagnosis is made - the sooner we can avert problems.

Dyslexia testing can be carried out from as young as 4.5 years of age. There is no upper limit.

Most first time clients are referred, or refer themselves, due to underachievement. The remainder tend to be people who need concessions (Access Arrangements) in examinations. Unless a candidate has been diagnosed early in their school career the Exam Boards may refuse the request.

Although we specialise in dyslexia, our dyslexia tests are aimed at anyone - at school or in the workplace - who is failing to reach their potential.
  Not everyone we assess has a profile synonymous with specific developmental dyslexia. We are well placed to recognise any learning difference.

Our experience is broad and our knowledge extensive. Schema Therapy is now offered to clients who have suffered psychological effects of dyslexia. It is important to stress, that psychological damage can be avoided if dyslexia is identified, acknowledged and addressed at an early stage.

Dyslexia is a lifelong condition. It is not a disease process, and as such, can't be cured. However, it is a learning difference which can be largely overcome. There are advantages to having a dyslexic brain. We'll help you to use these to tackle the disadvantages.
 
  Christina Jubb (Principal) M.Ed.
- has a unique blend of qualifications, influences and experience
 
All test results are overseen by Christina who is a Consultant Educationalist with 30 years experience specialising in dyslexia. Her initial specialist training was undertaken at St Bartholomew's Hospital (Dept of Psychological Medicine), where she gained a Diploma in Dyslexia and went on to work in the Department as a Dyslexia Therapist under Beve Hornsby. Their relationship as friends and co-workers continued until Prof Hornsby's ultimate retirement in 2004.

Christina also holds a Diploma in Education from the University of Wales (Bangor) in the Assessment and Remediation of Dyslexia.
  She was awarded a Master of Education degree from the Psychology Dept at Bangor (well known as a centre of excellence in dyslexia research) for her dissertation entitled 'Positively Dyslexic'. This is available in the National Library (Cardiff).

No-one else in the UK is currently assessing and teaching with this comprehensive combination of qualifications. They enable Christina to use 'closed' tests which can only be purchased and used by appropriately qualified practitioners (usually Educational Psychologists).
