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.

We have had Lynne tutor us in Biology IGCSE, she has been absolutely superb. She knows the specification inside and out and uses different methods to keep us engaged. Nothing is too much trouble, she went over and above. She also knows lots of interesting stuff around the topic, I learnt so much, She would be great to have on your team in a quiz!

Elite Tutors Sussex conducted a phonological screening assessment for our daughter (age 7) at our home and the follow up report and feedback has been helpful in identifying specific learning issues and signposting how we might go about addressing these.

Tean was an incredible tutor who was full of energy and made my son feel at ease throughout. She had an ability to bring out the best in him. She was excellent at explaining difficult concepts and I would not hesitate in recommending Tean and Elite Tutors.
