Screening and assessments for a disability

Dyslexia Action offers a variety of assessments and screenings for specific learning difficulties.

Diagnostic Assessment
We provide two types of diagnostic assessments which may indicate dyslexia, another specific learning difficulty, or that no specific difficulties exist. They can take between two and three hours. Both assessments result in a report which provides a large amount of detail and recommendations for the individual, to help with the most appropriate way forward. Find out more about diagnostic assessments.

A screening is an alternative to a diagnostic assessment; it will provide a profile of strengths and weaknesses and provide a report with recommendations about the most appropriate way forward. Screening does not diagnose dyslexia, but can provide useful pointers for action and help decide if further assessment would be useful. Find out more about the screenings we offer.


Tuition sessions with our specialist teachers are designed to boost skill levels as well as confidence. Tuition is tailored to your needs, subjects covered could include reading skills, writing skills, job applications, form filling, presentation skills and revision for exams. Find out more about our tuition.

Workplace Consultancy 

Workplace consultancy is offered to companies to help with the implications of dyslexia in the workplace.

Our focus during a workplace consultancy is to identify the dyslexic problems that are impacting on work performance.  We work with the employee to put strategies in place to develop strengths and manage weaknesses. 

We provide support to both employer and employee during the consultation which could include help with organisation, report writing and presentations, alongside strategies for reasonable adjustments in line with the Equality Act 2010. Learn more about Workplace Consultancy.
