A Full Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment…

…not only provides you with clarity and a diagnostic outcome, but you also receive a comprehensive report which…

  • Gives you, your school, your child’s current and future education and work settings an in-depth understanding of their cognitive strengths and current areas of weakness.
  • Offers your child increased self awareness, helping them to understand the cause of their difficulties, increasing their self esteem and enabling them to develop strategies to start utilising their strengths to overcome their difficulties.
  • Provides individualised recommendations explaining how you and their school can make appropriate adjustments and help them overcome their difficulties.


  • The results from the assessment can be used as evidence for exam access arrangements when appropriate.
  • It can also be used as evidence to apply for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
  • The report will last them indefinitely – right through their education and career.

How do I know if a dyslexia assessment is needed?

  1. Is there dyslexia or learning difficulties in the family?
  2. Is your child having clear difficulties with their reading, spelling, letter formation and/or their writing skills?
  3. Do they have trouble remembering  of left and right and their times tables?
  4. Is your child disorganised and/or have difficulty telling the time or understanding the concept of time?
  5. Is it hard for them to remember verbal instructions -particularly if there are more than one?

If you answered YES to the above questions then get in touch.

Do ensure your child has had a recent hearing test and an eye test with a qualified Optometrist (not a high street Optician) to rule out any hearing or visual difficulties which may affect their abilities to read and spell.

We at Mancroft learning will always give an honest, considered opinion of whether or not a full assessment is necessary.
