Dyslexic minds see the world differently. They are our innovators, entrepreneurs and artists who have shaped our past and have the skills of the future.
Sadly over 80% are not identified as dyslexic at school, underachieve and never truly understand their potential.
A dyslexia assessment will provide you with a thorough report of you or your child's condition with recommendations to make learning and working easier and more accessible.
Are you energetic, eager, spontaneous and show flashes of brilliance? But do other people get frustrated with you and sometimes describe you as hyperactive, disorganised, impatient and inconsistent?
If so, you may have ADHD. An ADHD assessment will provide you with a full diagnosis that can be used in education or the workplace, and when applying for disability allowances.
Dyslexic thinking skills are the 'in demand' skills in our changing world of work.
Dyslexic individuals should no longer be expected to ‘fit in’ but ‘stand out’ embracing their strengths.
Sometimes the simplest changes can make the greatest difference to your future.
A workplace assessment will enable your employer to make alterations to the workplace that will improve the well-being and productivity of employees with dyslexia.
Perhaps your child is struggling with homework, or maybe you find it difficult to concentrate at work. If so, you or your child may be feeling frustrated and powerless. An ADHD or dyslexia assessment will enable you to discover why your brain works the way it does and why you are experiencing problems in school or at work.
My assessments will highlight your strengths and identify what steps you can take to support you in areas you are struggling with. A report will also provide guidance for your teachers or employers so they can take steps to help you unlock your potential. With children this is especially important, as the sooner a diagnosis can be made, the quicker you can find support to assist your child's learning at school.
Current technology means that you don't even have to leave your home for testing. I can offer dyslexia and ADHD online assessments in the comfort of your own home.
My name is Sally Simmons, I am a Specialist Assessor with 15 years of experience providing dyslexia and ADHD assessments in Nottinghamshire and now Somerset. I am a qualified teacher and have worked as a SENDCO in both special education and mainstream schools. Being a parent of dyslexic son, I understand how dyslexia affects individuals and what is required to enable young people develop into successful and happy adults.
"I was really nervous before hand and put off sending a message for weeks, when I arrived I was immediately put at ease and Sally listened to what had to say and this was reflected in my report which will really help me in FE. She made suggestions that I hadn't thought about before - like a reader pen and put my mind at ease that I wasn't being silly but had dyslexia. When mum was reading my report she said she didn't realise some of the areas that I was struggling but now she feels like she has a better understanding of my difficulties. Thank you for everything and proving me with a really detailed report that gives a range of recommendations which will really help me at uni."
The DSA needs assessor said how effective the report was. Perfect layout and detail rich!!
Excellent, professional and friendly.
Sally was very friendly and easy to talk to! She managed to fit me in very quickly and she even came to me. Sally was great throughout the assessment, and we had a good joke!
Sally was lovely, I felt comfortable with her as soon as I met her which made the whole assessment process really easy. The communication was great and the results came back to me really quick which was brilliant.
