Assessment Services

A full range of assessments is available for individuals from 7 years of age through to adults of all age groups.

All assessments are carried out by an experienced, fully qualified specialist assessor who holds a current Practising Certificate 50000169-IF1772 (PATOSS) and an approved qualification as noted in SpLD Working group 2005/DfES Guidelines.

My Aim is to offer an initial consultation to establish what level of assessment is required, followed by a service tailored to the individual that includes:

  • The assessment at a suitable venue (e.g. my home, your home, workplace, place of learning)
  • Feedback session (optional) to explain the findings and recommendations in detail
  • Electronic and hard copy of report in a format suitable for purpose
  • Aftercare service – this could include:
    - follow up discussion
    - support
    - strategies
    - working with school, employer, other

Why Assess?

  • An assessment identifies strengths and dyslexic weaknesses so relevant action can be taken
  • It is necessary to go through certain official channels – such as applying for a DSA; completing a workplace needs assessment, having exam accommodations or reasonable adjustments
  • It helps identify strategies that can help you to take charge of your dyslexia
  • It can offer guidance on support others could give – parents, employers, schools and colleges, study support tutors, for example
  • Recommendations will include a profile of your differences and requirements, rather than a general guide which may not all be relevant
  • Overlapping or co-existing conditions can be identified, such as dyspraxia, dyscalculia, attention deficit or hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), for example
