We provide dyslexia awareness presentations about specific learning difficulties and their impact. Training is specifically tailored to meet the needs of each audience.
A screening will identify if an individual has indicators of a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia or dyscalculia.
It can provide useful insight into general areas of difficulty and can include a recommendation as to whether a formal diagnostic assessment is required
A definitive diagnosis of dyslexia for any individual requires a full and diagnostic assessment to be carried out by a competent and suitably qualified professional. The assessment itself will explore a range of skills and cognitive processing capabilities.
The resultant report will provide details on the nature and severity of any difficulties identified, as well as making recommendations as to how to best support the individual moving forward.
