Dyslexia Diagnostic assessment

Dyslexia Diagnosis Service

We offer a Dyslexia diagnosis service in Oxford for children and adults who require a full diagnosis of dyslexia for examination or support purposes. We can also offer support tutoring and workplace advice (see below).

The diagnostic assessment is made up of lots of different tasks. Each task is unique and covers a whole range of different skills. Participants will find some tasks easier than others, but no task lasts longer than 10 minutes. Due to the variable lengths of the tests, it is best not to try squeezing the assessment into too short a time slot as it can take 2-4 hours to complete.

A full dyslexia diagnostic assessment can be used for schools, access arrangements, DSA application, exam concessions, workplace accommodations or for peace of mind.

Our assessment includes a background interview, literacy assessments, psychological assessments, questionnaires, handwriting assessment, psychophysical evaluations and a visual symptoms screening.

The DRT package will provide a comprehensive educational assessment, identification of key strengths and areas of weakness, post assessment analysis, an individual intervention plan and learning strategy recommendations. We can also provide advice on exam concessions, dyslexia in the workplace and DSA grant applications. You will receive an independent evaluation of helpful supporting technologies, an explanation of dyslexia research results and how to take it further.

Support Tutoring & Workplace Consultations

Your report will incude our recommendations. If you wish to take these further we can offer one to one support sessions to help cement these strategies and/or help with specific projects, exams or coursework.

A DRT Representative may be able to visit you in your workplace with advice on how best to implement strategies suggested in your report. We can also provide support to help both employers and employees in the workplace.

Helping with Research

Understanding the neural basis of dyslexia will improve both the diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia. You might be interested in volunteering with our research. It's a great way to get more of an insight into dyslexia and you can be added to our mailing list for research updates.
