Dyslexia Asssessment

At Surrey’s Learning and Counselling Centre our unique learning environment supports you and your child when you discover she/he are having problems learning. We understand your concerns our team of highly qualified Specialist Teachers are 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 assessment offers an official diagnosis of dyslexia and identifies any other underlying learning difficulties, it usually takes 2.5 hours. 

Speech and Language Therapy

We offer a service that looks at the whole child and understands that speech, language and communication skills directly affect a child’s ability to access and interact with the world around them. Every child is unique and needs a bespoke approach to recognise and encourage their strengths as well as supporting more challenging areas

All our therapists are fully qualified and registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the Health and Care Professions Council.

Direct Therapy

For some young people it may be helpful to have a course of therapy to support them in practising and integrating support strategies.
