Please note that the Dyslexia Association of London do not offer assessments.
We are working on building a database of qualified professionals, however at this time we rely on the British Dyslexia Association to provide diagnostic assessments. You can find further information below on what to do if you believe you may have dyslexia.
Children/Young PeopleEven though children can begin to show signs of dyslexia from a young age, it is typically not diagnosed until around 6 years old. That said, some children will not be diagnosed until adulthood. Dyslexia affects each individual differently, however there are some signs that you can look out for in your child which may indicate dyslexia. These include:
- Difficulty following instructions
- Forgetful with words or unable to recognise words that are familiar to them
- Stronger oral skills than written work
- Poor comprehension skills
At secondary school these indicators become more specific and can include:
- Confusing words
- Confusing right and left
- Clear difficulties processing information
- Much stronger knowledge than is able to express in written form
