Diagnostic Assessment

If you have taken part in a screening showing positive indicators of dyslexia or another Specific Learning Difference (SpLD), you will be referred for a full diagnostic assessment. This would be with one of a team of experienced qualified assessors, and information on funding would be discussed with you beforehand at your screening.

The assessment is arranged by us and can take up to three hours, during which time you will be asked to participate in a number of diagnostic assessment tasks.

The assessor then writes the Assessment Report which highlights strengths and weaknesses and make recommendations for support, which could include exam arrangements and one-to-one support.

When the report is available we will invite you back for a feedback appointment with us. If you are found to have learning differences, we will register you with our service during that appointment. If not, we will advise you of alternative forms of support available at City.

Please be aware that you must give us at least two full working days’ notification if you cannot attend your assessment appointment. If you do not let us know, you will be charged the full cost of the assessment.
