Assessments may be requested for several reasons and as such should be fit for purpose:
As a parent you may be concerned about your child’s progress at school and want an independent assessment of their current levels of attainment.
You may suspect your child has Dyslexia or related Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs) and requires an assessment that offers a diagnosis, together with a recommended teaching programme.
You may require an assessment to provide evidence of an already diagnosed Specific Learning Difficulty for Exam Access Arrangements at GCSE, A Level or University.
This assessment can identify Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD), including Dyslexia and Dyspraxia, and suggest any further assessments that may be needed.Find Out More
