A full range of language based assessments are used to determine if the student is suffering from dyslexia. This is a comprehensive assessment which will pin point deficits across the domains of reading, spelling and writing.
A report is provided outlining any accommodations required, strategies for the teacher and parent to use to increase skills and ideas for the teacher on how to help in the classroom. There is also information provided on dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia as appropriate to help with understanding and ideas for provisions and strategies to help the student cope at school.
An initial consultation is used to determine a student’s current levels for reading and spelling. This includes a phoneme to grapheme checklist and a word level decoding and encoding assessment, a phonological, working memory and auditory discrimination screener.

Results are emailed to the parent and the classroom teacher, outlining what will be covered in sessions.
