This is a less intense assessment and takes up to 90 minutes. Breaks can be taken at suitable points.

What is in the report?

A short report is provided summarising results, risk of dyslexia and brief recommendations.

Who can be assessed?

This screening service is for 5 – 6 year olds who are demonstrating difficulties with literacy skills.

How much does it cost?

The fee is £200 and includes a post-assessment consultation to discuss the outcomes.
