Dyslexia Assessments

Rebecca is able to offer professional dyslexia assessments for young people aged 7-15.

Full professional diagnostic dyslexia assessment

A full diagnostic assessment for dyslexia is a thorough assessment which will typically test the following skills:

Word Reading, Reading Comprehension, Reading Speed, Spelling, Extended Writing, Verbal and Visual Intelligence, Memory, Phonological and Processing skills and Handwriting Speed and Letter Formation.

The assessment report will include all of the scores as well as a wealth of strategies which are directly linked to the areas of need. This will help the school to then put a plan in action to address those needs.

The cost of a full diagnostic assessment is £280.  Assessments can be carried out at Rebecca’s home in Chiddingfold (GU8) or at the child’s home.

Literacy assessment

A Literacy assessment involves using professional standardised tests to determine your child’s Word Reading, Reading Comprehension, Reading speed and Spelling skills. Children are also asked to write a short piece of independent writing so that this can be analysed. For younger children, a phonic assessment is also useful.

You will receive a report with all of the scores, the areas of strengths and weaknesses noted and, crucially, useful strategies linked to these. If the scores come out as low and dyslexia is suspected, you will be given more information on this and the option to ‘top-up’ to a full assessment, if this is wanted. The cost of a screening assessment is £95.

Other assessments

If you require a different sort of assessment, for instance, one for a younger child,  then please contact Rebecca with your requirements and a quote can be sent to you.
