Why is it important to get a dyslexia assessment?

  1. Accurate Diagnosis: Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty that affects reading, writing, and spelling. An assessment can accurately diagnose dyslexia and rule out other potential causes of academic difficulties. This diagnosis is crucial for understanding the individual’s needs and providing appropriate support.
  2. Access to Support Services: In the UK, individuals diagnosed with dyslexia are entitled to support services and accommodations in educational settings under the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice. These accommodations may include extra time in exams, assistive technology, and specialised teaching methods. However, access to these services typically requires a formal diagnosis.
  3. Personalised Interventions: Once diagnosed, individuals can receive personalized interventions tailored to their specific learning needs. These interventions may include specialised literacy programs, multisensory teaching approaches, and strategies to improve reading comprehension and writing skills.
  4. Boosting Self-Esteem: Understanding that their struggles are not due to lack of intelligence but rather to a specific learning difficulty like dyslexia can boost individuals’ self-esteem and confidence. It helps them recognise their strengths and talents while learning to navigate their challenges effectively.
  5. Legal Protections: A formal dyslexia diagnosis can provide legal protections in educational and workplace settings. It ensures that individuals are not discriminated against due to their learning difficulties and that they receive the necessary accommodations to perform to the best of their abilities.
  6. Early Intervention: Identifying dyslexia early allows for early intervention, which is crucial for improving outcomes. With appropriate support and interventions, individuals with dyslexia can develop strategies to overcome their difficulties and achieve academic and professional success.

Overall, getting a dyslexia assessment for someone who is struggling in the UK is essential for ensuring they receive the support, accommodations, and interventions they need to thrive academically and beyond.

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.
