  • visual and fine motor skills are tested with drawing and puzzles.
  • if the print moves or blurs when reading, you may need a specialist optometrist appointment - advice can be given.
  • The tests and puzzles take around (1.5 to 2 hours for a child) and 3 hours for an adult but they can be done in one sitting as they are mostly puzzles.

a definition of dyslexia for children......

The  Rose Report (2009)  suggested, "dyslexia primarily affects accurate and fluent word reading and spelling.  Characteristic features of dyslexia are difficulties with phonological awareness (ability to manipulate sounds in words), verbal memory and processing speed.  There is some evidence that dyslexia is associated with difficulties in processing information coming in via the senses, including visual and auditory information." 

 

a definition of dyslexia for students/adults....

Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty which mainly affects the development of literacy and language related skills.  It is likely to be present at birth and to be lifelong in its effects.  It is characterised by difficulties with phonological processing, rapid naming, working memory, processing speed and the automatic development of skills that may not match up to an individual’s other cognitive abilities.  It tends to be resistant to conventional teaching methods but its effect can be mitigated by appropriate specific intervention, including the application of information technology and supportive counselling.
