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).
Our Psychologist will then regardless of the result, 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.
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.
