“Adults who wish to be assessed for dyslexia should contact a local or national dyslexia association for advice.”

How is dyslexia diagnosed

There are a number of tools available that can be used to help give an indication of possible dyslexic difficulties.

But dyslexia can only be formally diagnosed through a Diagnostic Assessment carried out by a certified assessor, explains the British Dyslexia Association (BDA).

It explains: “Screening tests are designed to give an indication of possible dyslexic difficulties. They are not a diagnosis.

There are many different types of screening tests; in an education setting some are delivered by computer, others need to be administered by a teacher/SENCo. Some just give an estimate as to whether the child/person is likely to have dyslexic difficulties. A few offer a more detailed profile of strengths and weaknesses, which help inform an appropriate teaching strategy.

“Where any screening test indicates a moderate or high probability of dyslexic difficulties, the best course of action is to follow up with a full diagnostic assessment. This would determine the precise nature of dyslexic and related difficulties.”
