A comprehensive assessment which includes a family questionnaire, a battery of assessment tests and a detailed written report. The report will include test results, a summary of strengths and weaknesses and most importantly Educational Recommendations. Assessments usually take between 1½ to 2 hours depending on the individual. The assessment process is based on the recommended procedure from Dyslexia Action (UK) Do you have a folder of past assessments that have not really helped? I am happy to look through them and offer you advice.
I also offer a Dyslexia pre-assessment service. This will not give a diagnosis of dyslexia, but will give an indication as to whether further investigation should be explored.
MSL Specialist Tutoring
This is NOT just another tutoring service. Specialist tutoring is DIFFERENT. Dyslexic children and those with Specific Learning Difficulties learn differently to other individuals. They require individual tailored programmes which are structured, cumulative and multisensory. Tutoring must draw on their strengths and address their weaknesses. Often individuals have compensated for their weaknesses and masked their difficulties which often means they have poor foundations on which to build. During tutoring sessions the aim is to establish a strong foundation and build on this, enabling individuals to develop and make progress.
Most adults will have heard of dyslexia but know little about it or how to help. I offer tailor-made workshops and training to those interested in learning more. Please contact me to discuss your specific requirements.
