Judy is qualified to carry out full diagnostic assessments for both dyslexia and dyscalculia. She is also able to advise on exam access arrangements.
A full diagnostic assessment would involve a series of assessments alongside discussions with the child and the parents. This process usually lasts for around three hours, but may be longer depending on the age of the child. The assessments can all be done on the same day, if required , but Judy would recommend two separate times as three hours is a long time for anyone to sit through a series of assessments.
Judy will then write a full diagnostic report that can be used as evidence for exam access arrangements and will also provide confirmation as to whether the child has dyslexia or not. If the concern was to do with maths, then different assessments will be carried out to ascertain whether the child has dyscalculia.
The cost of a full diagnostic assessment, including the report, is £350.
