FAQ SpLD Assessment
What ages are assessed?
I specialise in school aged children.
How do I arrange a diagnostic assessment?
You can complete this form Request for Diagnostic Assessment
Or if you would like to have a chat first please call Jan on 0238 104 0108 who will be happy to discuss and explain the process.
How to I arrange a screening for dyscalculia or dyslexia?
Where does the assessment take place?
At Southampton Tuition Centre, please see Get in Touch for directions. There is dedicated parking.
Can I be in the room whilst my child is being assessed?
There are a number of reasons why but mainly it’s to avoid distractions.
The tests are also copywritten so are not allowed to be seen by anybody other than a qualified assessor and the person being assessed, and they can only see their part.
We also have breaks so they will come out to have a snack etc.
Can you assess for exam access arrangements?
Yes, but that is really down to the examination centre (the school). If they would like me to complete part 2 of the form 8, then they need to have a working relationship with me prior to me conducting any testing and send me the already completed part 1. There might be an extra charge for this service.
I work for schools as an independent exam access arrangements assessor. Any school requiring this service should contact me for availability and prices.
Already diagnoised wtih Dyslexia but need Dyscalculia investigation
If you already have had a diagnosis of dyslexia done but require further investigation into dyscalculia then so long as it has been at least 6 months since the previous testing was done then a new investigation can be undertaken.
If you require both dyslexia and dyscalculia to be investigated then it is better to get them tested for together as many of the tests are the same.
