Who benefits from a screening test?

Anyone aged 7 and above who is struggling with literacy.

Even if no learning difficulty or neurodiversity is identified, a screening test can tell you more about your strengths and weaknesses. Your assessor will also keep an eye out for any other difficulties that could be responsible, such as ASD or ADHD .

On the day, you will be given:
• A printed screening certificate stating the probability of Dyslexia.
• An advice session on what the results mean and what you can do next.
• A completely independent, professional service in a relaxed atmosphere.

Symptoms of dyslexia

• Problems with phonics, reading or spelling.
• Poor educational performance and not meeting potential.
• Family history of learning difficulties.
• Short term memory problems or difficulty remembering instructions.
• Falling behind peers and struggling to catch up.
• Trouble dealing with homework or paperwork.
• Literacy problems at school or work.
• Unexplained reading difficulties in the past.

What will the screening tell me?

A screening test does not measure IQ, and in line with best practice, we do not conduct screening tests on children under the age of 7.

• Probability of dyslexia.
• Analysis of literacy.
• Whether coloured overlays would assist you and the appropriate colour.

What will happen on the day?

A specialist teacher with qualifications in assessing individuals will discuss your current situation and answer any questions that you may have with neurodiversity. They will guide you through the testing process, explain the results and talk about further action and support. All of the screenings take place in a private room on a 1-to-1 basis.

Everyone is unique. Your advisor will take this into account when discussing your plan of action.
Some issues you may wish to discuss could be:

• Educational options.
• Specialist tuition.
• Assistive Technology.
• Support at home.
• Liaising effectively with schools, colleges or employers.

Even if the test comes out as a low probability, we will advise you on the next steps and any issues that may have been flagged up.

Schools, Clusters, Colleges & Universities

You may wish to pay for screening tests for your students. If this is the case, you have several options:

We can perform screening tests on students at our centres if they come in with a letter or e-mail from your institution containing invoicing information and the service that is required.

A staff member could bring a group of students to the centre for testing. The conditions above would apply along with written parental consent if the students are under 16.

Two copies of test results of all screenings are given on the day to the student. Please ensure that these results are obtained from them in the first instance.

Alternatively, an on site visit can be arranged. This can be carried out if the numbers are sufficient but this will need to be arranged in advance.
