Diagnostic Assessment

If you have taken part in a screening showing positive indicators of dyslexia, you will be referred for a full diagnostic assessment. This will be with one of a team of experienced qualified assessors. The assessment takes place here at City, University of London 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.

Information on funding for a diagnostic assessment will be discussed with you during your screening appointment.

Please be aware that you must give us at least 48 business hours advanced notice of you cannot attend your assessment appointment. If you do not let us know, you will be charged the full cost of the assessment.
