Learning Difficulties Assessments

Our aim is to equip children and young people with knowledge and skills so that they can go beyond understanding the nature of their difficulties to focus on their future development.

We can assess for:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dysgraphia
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
  • Giftedness
  • Emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • Examination Access Arrangements

After the consultation and assessment, a detailed report is produced. This will explain to parents and teachers the psychological issues that are important to the child or young person, such as:

  • how they can develop a growth mindset that enables them to do well, despite having difficulties
  • how to not focus on intelligence alone, as this can do more harm than good
  • how you can encourage them to believe in themselves to achieve their goals
  • how to help them deal with examinations

The report will also include valuable strategies that can support teachers and specialist teachers in helping children at school.

The Wellbeing Practice also provides assessments for students who are seeking access to theDisabled Student Allowance.
