Dyslexia Services - Combined Assessments
I am dually qualified as a speech and language therapist and specialist teacher and assessor. This means I can offer combined assessments if your child experiences difficulties with both spoken and written language.
Combined assessments are highly personalised and, for children age 7+, include key elements from the detailed speech and language therapy assessment and full diagnostic assessment. For younger children age 4+, a combined assessment will include pre-literacy and early literacy skills and provide essential recommendations for intervention if there is an increased likelihood of a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia.
When a combined assessment highlights the co-occurrence of a developmental language disorder and dyslexia, I offer intervention or study skills programmes which integrate speech and language therapy with specialist teaching.
