Diagnostic assessment - £250 Assessments are carried out at the centre and can be arranged at a time to suit you, including weekends and evenings. Any adult or young person aged 16 years or over is welcome.
The assessment lasts between two and three hours. It involves talking about strengths and weaknesses, schooling, coping strategies etc, and also the completion of different tasks. These will measure attainments in areas such as reading and spelling, underlying ability, and cognitive processing.
I am very happy for a parent of a young person to be present for the discussion part of the assessment. They are then welcome to wait in an adjoining room.
A detailed report will be available within two weeks. This will include my diagnosis, information on strengths and weaknesses and any appropriate recommendations. My reports meet the necessary criteria to support an application for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA).
Talks I am also available to give talks or run workshops on dyslexia, dyspraxia (DCD), ADHD and Asperger’s Syndrome.
