Online Assessment of Learning Needs up to age 16. 

This assessment takes place via Zoom. You are sent a link and just click on it. It takes one hour. A parent or adult needs to be present. The assessment is the GL Dyslexia Profile 

Standardised Measures are taken of: 

  • Reading skills

  • Spelling skills

  • Underlying cognitive processing skills (verbal/working memory and naming speed linked to dyslexia).

You receive a printed report, expert interpretation, standardised scores (these can be compared to a child's expected levels and scores and can be compared to the peer group). 

This is not a dyslexia assessment, but gives an indication of dyslexic-type difficulties, areas which need support and ways forward at home and school. Please fill in the 'Contact Page' for details. The cost is £195

 

 

  • Research shows that approximately 10% of the population have dyslexia to some degree. It can range from mild to severe.
