DYSLEXIA ASSESSMENTS

The first step to managing dyslexia is to get a diagnosis. We can provide patients with a proven dyslexia assessment that will provide clarity, and that they can use to make arrangements at work, college or school to mitigate the impact of the condition on performance and outcomes. Our dyslexia assessments, which can also be conducted face to face or by video call (Skype/FaceTime) is the most affordable dyslexia screening and assessment services in London, which are carried out by one of our highly specialised Psychologist who regularly carries out assessments for dyslexia and has a wealth of training and experience in the area of assessing and treating dyslexia.

After each assessment, a full written comprehensive report or verbal feedback is provided. This report can be supplied to a school or university in application for special treatment with respect to exams and assignments. Our Psychologist will also discuss the results and treatment options with the person involved. In addition to this we provide you with a free advice and tips on how to manage the condition and develop outstanding coping strategies.

There are currently two assessment options:- 

Option 1: Screening and report (2.5 hours including letter back):

Best for: For personal use.

Time required: 90 minutes approx.

Fee: £150 via skype/facetime or £200 face-face

The screening assessment tool is the first step in identifying specific learning difficulties; however, an interview with the client in order to explore personal development/history gives a more robust base form where to make interpretations resulting from the assessment tool.

Option 1 - More information

What will happen during the dyslexia screening session?

You will first be interviewed by the psychologist who will go over your concerns, questions and personal/developmental history. For the second part of the session, you will use a computerised program that will screen for dyslexia risk. This computerised assessment usually lasts for 30 minutes. Note that the results are not obtained on the same day.

Our Psychologist will produce a letter merging the results from the screening assessment and personal history; clear graphs are included in the letter (this will allow you to see and better understand your results). The letter also gives recommendations as to what would be the best steps to take moving forwards depending on the results. Alternatively, you may request for a verbal feedback session instead of a letter; please note that no written document is given during these sessions. Regardless of whether you choose to have a letter back or a verbal feedback session, the fee is quoted the same.

What will happen during the extensive dyslexia assessment session?

You will first be interviewed our Psychologist who will go over your concerns, questions and personal/developmental history. For the second part of the session, you will use a computerised program that will screen for dyslexia risk.

This computerised assessment usually lasts for 30 minutes. Note that the results are not obtained on the same day. If the results point to high or mild risk for a potential dyslexia diagnosis, our Psychologist will communicate this to you and make an appointment to see you for further assessments. The fee for this initial phase is £200. If you do not show a positive dyslexia result on the initial screening on the first visit you will not be required to attend on the second day and we will refund you £200 of the fees paid (assuming face-face).

On the second day of the extensive dyslexia assessment (2 hours required)

If you are required to attend the second session, this one will involve the use of one more testing tool and self-report scales. At this session, we will also look into other potential triggers that may be interfering with your learning process or academic/professional work (e.g. anxiety, low-mood).  Our Psychologist will then will produce a report in order to better determine the viability of a dyslexia diagnosis.
