The identification and diagnosis of Dyslexia is a complex process.


The assessment process involves careful consideration of the individual's strengths and weaknesses in learning, their educational history, the extent of their difficulties, and what impact targeted remediation and support has had on their current academic achievement levels. 

Educational psychologists use a series of specialised tests to determine if a person has Dyslexia. These tests often include measures of phonological processing, reading, spelling, orthographic processing, working memory and overall cognitive ability. Consideration is also made regarding whether the student has previously received suitable intervention and remediation, and how the student has responded to this increased level of support.

DSF Psychologists are able to assess if a person has Dyslexia, and can provide recommendations for support.
