Diagnostic assessments are needed if you wish to claim the Disabled Students Allowance for University (as long as the report was carried out at 16+).
Applications can take months to be processed by the Students Finance department so make sure that you book your assessment in advance to ensure that you get the learning support that you need to succeed.

 

DSA Diagnostic Assessment Report Package- £375.00
Assessments for higher education students and adults are usually sought to establish the nature of an individual’s difficulties, provide evidence for a DSA application and to give advice on future action. The assessment may indicate dyslexia, another specific learning difficulty, or that no specific difficulties exist. Whatever the outcome, recommendations are provided to help with the most appropriate way forward.

Assessments for higher education students and adults are usually sought to establish the nature of an individual’s difficulties, provide evidence for a DSA application and to give advice on future action. The assessment may indicate dyslexia, another specific learning difficulty, or that no specific difficulties exist. Whatever the outcome, recommendations are provided to help with the most appropriate way forward.
The assessment for adults lasts up to three hours, during which time you will be asked to complete a series of different tests that will provide a profile of your strengths and weaknesses. The assessment looks at background, education, ways of thinking, learning and problem-solving techniques as well as reading, writing, spelling and maths.
I will offer you an evaluation of my key findings at the end of the assessment and will also prepare a comprehensive and confidential report of the results with future recommendations for action. If your assessment has been paid for by your employer both you and your employer will receive reports. No confidential information of a personal nature will be included in the report that is sent to your employer.
Each assessment report will include:
• Summary of assessment report findings
• Brief summary of background information from home and school/college, including history of support at school/college
• Detailed interpretation of test results, including:
– General Ability
– Attainments, e.g. reading, spelling, writing
– Cognitive processing skills, e.g. memory, phonological awareness, speed of phonological processing
– Basic mathematical skills
– Handwriting skills, e.g. legibility, speed
• Conclusion – a holistic view of assessment findings
• Table of test scores
• Essential recommendations for supporting the learner where relevant:
– At home
– At work
– In further education settings (when appropriate)
– Access arrangements in exams (when appropriate)
– Specialist teacher/tutor (when appropriate)
– Full details of all the tests used in the session will be included for reference.
