Dyslexia Assessment

Do you have concerns about your child having Dyslexia? Medicspot is here to help, in partnership with the Private Therapy Clinic. We can provide patients with a proven dyslexia assessment that will provide clarity, and that they can use to make arrangements at work, college or school to mitigate the impact of the condition on performance and outcomes.

  1. What is Dyslexia?

    The term “dyslexia” is used to describe a condition whereby someone of normal intelligence struggles to read. The precise way in which the condition is experienced varies. For example, people may have problems with spelling, reading, writing, and so forth. The severity of the condition also varies, and some people with a mild form of the condition can develop compensatory behaviors, making it harder to identify them. Dyslexia is the most common learning disability in the world, impacting on up to 7% of the population. It is more easily diagnosed in countries where the language is less regularly phonetic than English, posing more challenges in terms of language acquisition.

How does the Assessment work?

  1. Step 1 - Review concerns and history

    You will first be interviewed by a neuropsychologist who will go over your and your child's concerns, questions and personal/developmental history. For this part of the session, your child will use a computerised program that will screen for dyslexia risk. This computerised assessment usually lasts for 30 minutes.

  2. Step 2 - Detailed assessment

    The second part of the session will involve the use of one or more testing tools and self-report scales. At this session, we will also look into other potential triggers that may be interfering with your child's learning processes or academic/professional work (e.g. anxiety, low-mood).

  3. Step 3 - Report and recommendations

    The neuropsychologist will then produce a report in order to better determine the viability of a dyslexia diagnosis and gives recommendations as to what would be the best steps to take moving forwards depending on the results.
