Dyslexic & Dyscalculic Asssessments

 

At Surrey’s Learning and Counselling Centre our unique learning environment supports you and your child when you discover she/he is having problems learning.

We understand your concerns our team of highly qualified Specialist Teachers is here to support and guide you. If after a consultation you decide that a diagnostic assessment is required we will then talk you through the process answering any questions and alleviating any fears you might have.

The assessments can provide an official diagnosis of dyslexia/dyscalculia and identify any other underlying learning difficulties. This usually takes 2.5 hours in the calm surroundings of SLCC. 

Known as Bea, I have over 30 years experience teaching in both the state and independent sector. With a genuine and deep interest in the impact of neurodiversity on learning, I became a Specialist Teacher and Assessor. My particular interests are in literacy and numeracy and I assess a wide range, including DSA appropriate assessments. 

 

My assessments provide an in-depth profile which helps with a deeper understanding of strengths and weakness and supports self esteem and learning.
