On-line Assessment

Free pre-screening/profiling or On-line Assessment (Click here) 

Sometimes an on-line assessment is the only way a parent can start to find answers.

Educational Assessment including a Dyslexia Screening Test (DST)

This is not a diagnostic tool but rather an educational assessment that indicates if dyslexia could be present or an "at risk" assessment.

A professional, such as an Educational Consultant, must have a background in education (teacher) with experience in the field of special education and have their qualifications approved by an independent authority (not an Association) before they can have access to the Dyslexia Screening Test.

The Dyslexia Association refers to an Educational Consultant that meets these requirements.  An assessment with an Educational Consultant will incur a fee and includes a report with recommendations for school home.  Click here to to book an assessment. 

Please note: The above is offered as a guide. It is not intended to be definitive. An Association can set criteria to meet for their acceptance into their Association. The Dyslexia Association criteria requires an Educational Consultant to meet the standards set by the independent authority in their area of expertise.
 

Solution Focused

The Dyslexia Association supports a Multi-Sensory Dyslexia program that allows the individual to develop their strengths without exploiting their weakness. This sort of program will include but not be limited to:

  • Experiential, visual and kinesthetic approach (multi-sensory) to reading
  • Non-phonics (non-linguistic/language) based approach to reading that develops visual and auditory encoding skills
  • A positive approach which provides gentle guidance to encourage positive attitudes to learning and life situations
  • A respectful approach to rebuild self esteem by valuing the visual learning style of the individual and understanding the experiences of the individual
  • A program that can address the conditions that can co-exist such as dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADD/ADHD
  • Professional Membership with The Dyslexia Association and a licensing facility

All professional members accepted and recommended by The Dyslexia Association meet the above criteria. Click here for contact details

Recommendations can be made by The Dyslexia Association to a professional however it is up to the individual to make an informed decision as to the help they ultimately commit to.
