The Consultant Psychological Assessment
A Dyslexia Network assessment is carried out by an independent consulting psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). It will involve a series of psychometric tests to measure spatial and verbal memory, reading and spelling in a standardised way so that results can be compared with others within the population of the same age range.
The assessor will provide key findings at the end of the assessment and you will subsequently receive a comprehensive confidential report setting out the results in detail. The report outlines strengths and weaknesses and indicates if an individual has a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia. It also provides important information about specific learning needs and suggestions for action.
