Adult Dyslexia Assessments | London | Access Arrangements

Assessments for adults

If you have ever wondered whether you might be dyslexic, or might have a processing speed or working memory difficulty.

If you would like to discover your IQ and your academic strengths, weaknesses and potential.

If you need an assessment to support a DSA application.

If you need an assessment to support an application for access arrangements (for example, extra time) in professional examinations.

Educational Psychologists (EPs) are skilled assessors with extensive training in all the factors that affect learning. An EP assessment will identify any underlying issues that may be holding you back.

Our adult assessments are broad based and cover all the different factors that can affect a person's capacity to learn and the brain's ability to process. 

Working with sensitivity and empathy, we use gold standard, cognitive tests, designed specifically to get to the heart of the problem and provide clear information and answers. 

An Educational Psychology assessment involves:

Gathering background information from you about your experiences with learning.

One of our psychologists meeting with you in our central London consulting rooms.

Carrying out tests of intellectual ability and literacy levels.

 

A consultation meeting, immediately after the assessment, to feedback the psychologist's findings and answer your questions. 

A full written report within two weeks.

Outcomes

What can you expect as an outcome of the assessment?

 

A thorough explanation of your difficulties and the underlying issues. This may involve a diagnosis.

Personalised and specialist strategies to help you either in higher education or your workplace.

Signposting on to more specialised assessments, if appropriate.

An EP report which, should the findings support this, can be submitted to your employer as evidence towards your requirement for reasonable adjustments, in accordance with the Equality Act 2010. This may also be used as evidence for access arrangements for professional examinations and university students, and DSA applications.
