If anyone ever puts you down for having dyslexia, don’t believe them. Being dyslexic can actually be a big advantage, and it has certainly helped me.

Diagnostic Dyslexia Assessment

With this assessment, our team can diagnose dyslexia. This is a full assessment of underlying ability, attainments in reading, writing and cognitive processing skills, such as memory, processing speed, and phonological processing. The diagnostic assessment is carried out at our Center by trained assessors. The assessment is accompanied by an in-depth written report.

Working Memory Test

Working (or short-term) memory impacts all stages of reading and comprehension. It allows individuals to keep auditory or visual information via their short-term memory store while using it to complete a task. Such may include remembering the digits in a telephone number. Working memory allows you manipulate information in your mind and enables tasks like draw conclusions, solve problems and make connections. For individuals with dyslexia, working memory deficits make it difficult to synthesize information while reading. In children, it may result in difficulty learning the alphabet and associating phonemes with letters. Our working memory texts assesses working memory ability and provides recommendations that can help address working memory weaknesses.

Test of Visual Stress

Visual stress, which affects 15 – 20% of the population, hinders children’s literacy development and is a barrier to efficient and enjoyable reading in both children and adults. This text gives an accurate and reliable indication of the existence and severity of visual stress and identifies those who may benefit from using coloured overlays or tinted lenses to combat the symptoms of visual stress.

Test of Cognitive Ability

This text provides a robust, standardized measure of cognitive reasoning ability. It gives an invaluable insight into an individual’s ability to reason across four distinct batteries: verbal, non-verbal, mathematical and spatial, as compared to the national average, allowing you to address patterns and adapt relevant exercises and teaching methods to suit your needs.
