• Diagnosis of dyslexia  is useful at any age but at higher education level it is essential for DSA (Student Finance) support and funding.  It is an essential part of this process that I screen for AD(H)D and Dyspraxia (DCD) while being alert to other causes for difficulty.  Schools will often screen for SpLDs using software or quicker testing methods. However, this is purely an indication of higher potential risk and, although it can be useful, is not fully reliable.  I will produce an extensive report based on two to four hours of psychometric testing which will be written to the required standards set by SASC (SpLD Assessment Standards Committee).
