Davis Dyslexia assessment
We start with a one-to-one Davis assessment
The Davis assessment is NOT an educational assessment, but it does allow us to find out if you are likely to benefit from our programme. We create a unique symptoms profile highlighting both your strengths and weaknesses, and this enables us to tailor-make a programme just for you. We can of courses give you an opinion based on our extensive experience, but that will not equate to a dyslexia assessment from an educational psychologist.
We aim to answer the following four questions:
Are you likely to benefit from our help?
Do you really want our help (not just your parents)?
Am I the best person to work with you (rapport is very important)?
How many days are you likely to need (5﹣12 days)
The result of the assessment is discussed at the end, but we do NOT provide a written report. If you are looking for a written dyslexia report, we recommend a full educational assessment, which we do not provide.
Even if you decide not to go further with our help, the Davis assessment is likely to give you a much greater understanding of the problems you are facing as well as a more positive outlook on the world.
If our Davis assessment indicates that you would benefit from using the Davis methods, you can at your leisure decide to sign up for a relevant Davis programme. You may want to do the free on-line Davis assessment right now, which will give you an immediate indication of whether our programme is likely to benefit you.
This free, secure and confidential screening assessment will give a profile of learning strengths and weaknesses, including a measure of severity of symptoms.
