It's okay, I don't make students do this! However,
having fun is a vital ingredient...

 

Assessment and education services

I offer a full range of dyslexia-related assessment, study skills and education services. My price list is here.

Assessment Reports for Dyslexia and SpLD:

Detailed professional assessments

Access for exam concessions or Disabled Studentís Allowance

Reader friendly and easy to understand

Helping teachers/lecturers to tailor individual learning

Suggestions for dyslexia friendly teaching.

Here's an example of an Assessment Report. This is for a young person.

Reports for older students or adults are just as thorough, although obviously different assessments may be used, e.g. a report will be tailored towards DSA requirements for a prospective university student.

Workplace assessments concentrate on establishing where the employee may be having difficulties, and advising on any reasonable adjustments that can be made by the employer.

Specialist workshops, tailored to the student:

Covering all aspects of literacy and confidence building

Working with 'number' - dyslexia and maths

Developing effective study skills - all levels, incl. university

Exam preparation for students who have a reader or scribe

Conquering nerves and exam preparation for all students.

I usually run one-to-one sessions, but for things like exam preparation it is often more interesting for students to be in small groups. Click on the link for more about the importance of study skills.

I am a specialist exam invigilator for Millfield School so I can teach students how to make the most of extra time, or any other form of help they may receive.

Training for Parents, Teachers and Support Groups:

Training and support for parents of children with dyslexia

Help with setting up dyslexia support groups for parents

Training for teachers on dyslexia, and the dyslexia friendly    school.

Here's some sample slides from a What is Dyslexia? presentation.
