Purpose of the service
To identify the individual's strengths and weaknesses in the workplace and provide advice and guidance to them and their employer so appropriate workplace support can be provided.
What is a Dyslexia Diagnostic with Workplace Assessment?
It is a comprehensive assessment to establish whether an individual has dyslexia. It provides information about the individual’s strengths and weaknesses together with recommendations for adjustments, training and support. A Workplace Dyslexia Assessment provides more job specific information and guidance on reasonable adjustments that can be made for the individual in their specific role and working environment. This can be arranged to take place alongside a diagnostic assessment or at a later date.
A written report is provided to include findings and recommendations.
Who is this suitable for?
A diagnostic assessment may be beneficial where an individual is experiencing significant difficulties in the workplace, particularly those who struggle with aspects of learning, reading, writing and/or spelling and/or those find aspects of remembering and organising at work difficult, or where an employee who has or thinks they may have dyslexia but has not been provided with an appropriate assessment or support in the past.
