Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment
People with dyslexia don’t need to be disadvantaged in the workplace. With the right tools — tools that suit them and their way of working, they’ll be able to overcome barriers and work with greater speed, accuracy and confidence.
Before you go ahead and spend lots of money on general solutions, we recommend booking a Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment with a psychologist who specialises in adult dyslexia. By assessing individuals face-to-face they’re able to base their recommendations on the nature of their dyslexia and the specific roles they carry out.
The result? A personalised report that suggests the most effective course of action for that employee. Not only will you save money by avoiding unsuitable solutions that end up falling flat, but your employees will feel valued, listened to and supported.
What is a Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment?
A Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment is an in-depth one-to-one session carried out by a fully qualified and registered psychologist specialising in adult dyslexia.
Dyslexia is covered in the Equality Act 2010. This means that employers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to overcome any barriers faced by the individual as a result of dyslexia. The Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment forms part of your obligations.
Following the Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment, a full written report will be issued. It will help you, the employer, identify strengths and weaknesses and provide you with a clear set of recommendations for any adjustments that might need to be made.
Who is a Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment for?
Anybody who has dyslexia, or thinks they may have dyslexia, and is experiencing challenges in the workplace as a result.
Around one in 10 UK adults have some degree of dyslexia, which means they may experience problems with reading, writing and spelling.
