School Age Children SpLD Assessment

Our Specialist Educational Assessments are suitable for school age children from the age of 7 years and are used to assess current levels of literacy and numeracy achievement as well as underlying cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

As such it can identify Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) – including Dyslexia and Dyspraxia, and suggest any further assessments that may be required by other services including Optometry, Health and Occupational Therapy.

In addition, a Specialist Educational Assessment provided by Brainwaves Education Ltd can offer guidance to parents as to whether their child requires Additional support as part of the SEND Code of Practice 2015 and suggest recommendations for in class differentiation.

A full report is produced following this assessment with detailed and practical school and home recommendations where appropriate.

Why seek a Private Assessment?

There may be a number of reasons why a parent may seek a private assessment for their child and often several factors to consider. In some cases it may be beneficial for the parent to meet with our assessor, Emma Woodman, prior to booking an assessment with us to first consider the current situation and review any support already in place, including previous assessments, to ensure an assessment is recommended.

Parents are asked to send to us documentation of their child’s progress at school e.g. school reports and IEPs prior to the consultation.

The pre-consultation fee of £80 is deducted from our assessment fee should the child proceed to a full assessment with us during the same academic year as the consultation.
