Dyslexia Assessments

Elite Tutors Sussex

Dyslexia assessments give a clear understanding of why a student is experiencing difficulties

The dyslexia assessor working with us, is a Level 7 registered

dyslexia assessor and a registered APC practitioner.

By enlisting these services, you’ll receive an insightful approach

and a thorough, comprehensive assessment.

The assessment

There are many reasons why you may need a dyslexia assessment. Certainly, if there are any literacy issues, as a parent, you’ll want to know exactly what is going on so that you can best support your child.


Dyslexia assessments can take between 3 and 4 hours with suitable breaks. Feedback is provided alongside a full written report which makes the results clear. Recommendations for both school and home are also included in the report and can be an incredibly important part of getting the extra help your child may need, exactly right.

A diagnostic decision is made and recommendations to help support learning are given. If the learner is legible for any access (exam) arrangements (or Disability Allowance for higher education), then the assessor will provide you with advice and further information.

Most of the tests are relatively short and are a mix of cognitive processing, literacy, and numeracy skills. Any questions about the assessment process are of course very welcome and we can send you a report exemplar should you wish.

Understanding your child's learning

Knowing key areas for development will give you information that will power your child’s learning forward. Dyslexia assessments can be key in gaining self-understanding, and empowerment and has a direct positive impact on self-esteem.

Honor Ellis, Brighton

Our educational consultant was very happy to meet with us afterwards to talk through the analysis and recommendations. Following this they are structuring a programme of 1-1 support to boost our daughter’s phonological/reading ability and numeracy operations.

I needed to improve my English for my business and economics degree. I would highly recommend Elite Tutors Sussex who made sure I got exactly the right vocabulary for my studies.

Charlie, Horsham

Elite Tutors have been great. Our son’s tutor has been excellent and guided him through the BOFA process in advance of some entrance exams. The zoom lessons work ok and the learning is very organised, and exactly what we were looking for to complement our useless attempts at homeschooling during five months of Covid lockdown. I’ve just booked another ten lessons!
