Dyslexia Assessments

May 10, 2023 | SEND, GCSE, Primary Tuition | 0 comments

Dyslexia assessments typically involve a combination of standardized tests, observations, interviews, and evaluations of the individual’s academic and cognitive abilities. The assessment process can vary depending on the age of the individual being evaluated, their level of reading and writing proficiency, and the specific concerns of the referring party (e.g., parents, teachers, healthcare providers).

Some common components of a dyslexia assessment may include:

    1. Reading and writing tests: These tests may assess a range of skills, such as decoding (the ability to sound out words), comprehension (the ability to understand what is read), spelling, and writing fluency.

    1. Cognitive tests: These tests may evaluate the individual’s memory, attention, and other cognitive abilities that are relevant to reading and writing.

    1. Language and speech assessments: These evaluations may examine the individual’s ability to process and understand language, as well as their speech and articulation abilities.

    1. Observations and interviews: These components of the assessment process may involve gathering information from parents, teachers, and other individuals who know the individual well.

 It is important to note that dyslexia assessments should always be conducted by qualified professionals, such as educational psychologists or a Level 7 Trained Dyslexia assessor, otherwise, the results may not provide the support the adjustments need for examinations.
