Services
 
   
I specialise in Dyslexia screening and diagnosis.  My hours of availability are quite flexible and an initial phone call will answer any questions and serve as a no-cost consultation.  Please email if this is easier though.  I pride myself on advising you well at the point of assessment and producing the report quickly.  My reports are detailed, at a high standard and focused on supporting the individual.  
 

 

  • Free initial telephone consultation, with no obligation to take up my services.  I may be able to signpost you to an alternative source of help, or plan a taster session with you to see how things go. Call or email me to get this started. 

 

  • Dyslexia screening, assessment and diagnosis is useful at any age but especially at higher education level where it is essential for DSA support and funding.  It is an essential part of this process that I screen for AD(H)D, Dyspraxia (DCD) and Dyscalculia as well as being alert to other causes for difficulty.  Schools will often screen for SpLDs and provide you with a report, however, this is purely an indication of higher potential risk and, although it can be useful, it will not guide learning effectively.  I will produce an extensive report based on three to five hours of psychometric testing which is at the required standards set by SASC (SpLD Assessment Standards Committee).   

 

  • Tutoring Limited availability to work directly on focused literacy support.  I specialise in multisensory literacy acquisition. 

 

  • Exam preparation and access arrangements.  For some children, extra time or use of scribes and additional technology can be a simple adjustment that unlocks their potential in these situations and levels the playing field.  Assessment for these arrangements must be carried out by qualified professionals such as myself to become valid.  

 

  • Study skills and cognitive skills development, including work on memory, mindfulness, focus and organisation. 

 

  • ASD / AD(H)D / OCD / SPLD advice and educational support.
