I offer a range of assessments
- Lesson Assessment – This is normally takes an hour where academics are tested for 45 minutes and oral feedback and advice given on areas such as reading, phonics and maths. It is less expensive than a full assessment
- A Full Diagnostic dyslexia assessment – This usually takes up to 3 hours. I will cover three main areas – underlying ability – both verbal and non-verbal, memory and cognitive abilities and performance in literacy (reading, reading comprehension, spelling, free writing and handwriting/typing speed)
- A full Diagnostic dyscalculia assessments – again this would take around 3 hours and covers underlying ability – both verbal and non-verbal, memory and cognitive abilities and performance in Numeracy (number sense and counting, calculation, place value, multiplication and division and word problems)
Importantly a list of recommendations are also included and advice on how to move forward. All assessments are completed following the current PATOSS guidelines. I hold a current practicing certificate (APC) and so am able to offer assessments for children of primary and secondary school age as well as for adults and for the DSA (Disabled Student Allowance). I am also able to recommend access arrangements for public exams.
I feel the way I conduct and feedback assessments is very important . Whilst accurate scores are vital I believe that all clients feel that they understand themselves better than before, are empowered by the experience and can be strong self advocates.
Please do contact me if you wish to discuss an assessment.
