We assess students for a wide range of specific learning difficulties. Apart from specific problems, such as dyslexia, we also assess the full range of learning difficulties, neurological dysfunctions and disabilities, including, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Asperger’s syndrome and Autism.
All assessments are conducted at our consulting rooms in Northampton and last approximately one and a half hours. After the assessment has been completed a detailed report will be written and sent to you, within two weeks, which can be used to apply for the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA). Once you have read the report we offer a free 30 minute consultation, when we can explain the findings of the report and discuss the recommendations made. No referral is necessary and all reports are confidential.

Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty, which can affect a person’s reading, spelling, memory, concentration and personal organisation. If you have difficulty with several of the following, then an assessment may helpful to you.

  • Are you able to recognise common words without difficulty?
  • Are you able to ‘sound out’ unfamiliar words?
  • Can you easily lose you place as you read along a line of print?
  • Do you ever find that the print can appear to ‘move’ as you read?
  • Are you often able to read text, but unable to understand it?
  • Can you remember how to spell new words you encounter?
  • Do you have difficulty recalling the spelling of common words?
  • Do you think you need to concentrate much more on spelling than other people?
  • Are you often able to read text, but unable to understand it?
  • Do you frequently lose your personal belongings?
  • Do you need to rely on other people to prompt you about appointments?
  • Are you able to dual task e.g. list to a person talking and make notes at the same time?
  • Do you have difficulty finding the words you need to express yourself?
