Why have a Dyslexia assessment?

A dyslexia assessment can offer several benefits, including:

1. Early Identification: A dyslexia assessment can help identify dyslexia in individuals at an early stage. Early identification is crucial as it allows for timely intervention and support, which can significantly improve educational outcomes and overall well-being.

2. Accurate Diagnosis: A thorough dyslexia assessment involves comprehensive testing conducted by trained professionals, such as psychologists, educational specialists or specialist teachers. The assessment evaluates various aspects of reading, writing, phonological processing and language skills to provide an accurate diagnosis. This diagnosis can help individuals and their families understand the specific challenges they face and tailor interventions accordingly.

3. Individualised Support: Following a dyslexia assessment, professionals can provide targeted recommendations and interventions based on the individual’s unique needs. This may involve specialised teaching methods, assistive technologies, accommodations, or modifications in the learning environment. Individualised support can empower individuals with dyslexia to overcome challenges and maximize their potential.

4. Improved Academic Performance: With a better understanding of an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, educators and parents can implement strategies and interventions that address specific areas of difficulty. By providing appropriate support and accommodations, individuals with dyslexia can enhance their reading, writing, and language skills, leading to improved academic performance.

5. Increased Self-Awareness and Self-Advocacy: A dyslexia assessment can help individuals develop a greater understanding of their learning profile. This increased self-awareness can boost their self-esteem, as they realise that their difficulties are not indicative of intelligence or capability. It also enables them to become self-advocates, communicating their needs and seeking support when necessary.

6. Access to Resources and Services: In many educational systems, a dyslexia diagnosis is a prerequisite for accessing accommodations, services, and resources that can support individuals with dyslexia. These may include extra time on exams, assistive technologies, specialised tutoring, audiobooks, or modified instructional materials. A dyslexia assessment can facilitate the provision of these resources and ensure individuals receive the necessary support.

7. Future Planning and Transition Support: A dyslexia assessment can assist in long-term planning, especially during transitions, such as moving from primary to secondary school or transitioning to higher education or the workforce. By understanding an individual’s strengths and areas of need, educators, parents, and professionals can develop appropriate strategies and support systems to facilitate successful transitions.

Craig has been a fantastic support with my son, Craig offers a wealth of knowledge, experience and great advice. Craig is enthusiastic and has a great deal of patience with the people he supports, I would have no hesitation in recommending his services and wish him all the best in the future.

Craig has been a Godsend to myself and my husband and my eldest daughter who was diagnosed. I am glad I asked for Craig’s professional opinion on the matter.  I am glad he did the assessment and we got the outcome of what we have thought it was for a while now. Thank you Craig.

I am a student who has been receiving support and tutoring from Craig since November 2018. Since receiving tutorial support from Craig, I have progressed onto high-level courses and an access course which has helped with my studies, knowledge and work. Craig has shown me support and helped make my course work manageable. I feel that I have been able to turn to Craig with any question or doubt and have received nothing but clarity and guidance. Without Craig’s help and support I do not think I would have the courage and ability to complete the courses and progress to higher levels. I have had support off Craig for a variety of courses and with work advise.

I feel that Craig has given me the confidence to take steps in my life that I would not have made on my own. Craig has not only been friendly and supporting, but has also been very professional, reliable and organised with the help he has given me.


Craig engages with his students in a way that is both professional and clear and thus gains the most of the time spent in his classes.
