If you are a parent of a child with dyslexia, you will want to know more about dyslexia and understand how to help your child.
We offer full diagnostic assessments for children
Assessments for Children
Our assessments will result in a report which will give practical advice and make recommendations about how to support your child at home and at school.
“I have had my 9-year-old twins assessed at the Adult Dyslexia Centre. Outstanding service from start to finish. My twins enjoyed the whole experience so much, they have asked if they can go again!”
