Am I Dyslexic?

How can I find out if I'm dyslexic?

You can begin by looking at the free checklist to see if you have similar difficulties.

If you do? 

You may wish to take the next step which is a computer screening assessment to see if you have dyslexic traits or tendencies, for further information please ring our mobile helpline or email.

If this proves positive the next step is a full Chartered Psychologist Assessment for Education or the Workplace This is carried out by another organisation currently charging £475 this assessment takes approximately 3 hours and a written report usually follows within 21 days, again for further information please call our helpline or email us.

Please Note there may be other ways of obtaining the above however for this information we strongly recommend you attend one of our monthly meetings, the screening for dyslexic traits you will need to contact administration using mobile number or email.

Is there a cure?

No! There is no cure. With help, a lot of the issues can be resolved. You can learn how to cope and make positive use of the skills that you have.

Is dyslexia hereditary?

Dyslexia appears to run in families and there is increasing evidence to show that it is hereditary.
