Diagnostic report

The person who assesses you to see if you are dyslexic will write a diagnostic report to detail their findings.

The report will usually  cover the following things:

  • details about your background
  • tables with your assessment scores
  • interpretation of those scores
  • a discussion of your overall profile, including your strengths
  • recommendations.

The recommendations might cover:

  • arrangements for when you need to take exams
  • study support strategies
  • reasonable adjustments if you are at work
  • assistive technology that could be useful.

Your report might also mention other aspects of your profile, e.g. dyspraxia, dyscalculia and other things that might need investigation (your eyesight, hearing etc.)

Having a diagnostic report becomes your passport for applying for funds (Disabled Students’ Allowance, Access to Work).  It is also the first step in ensuring that you are protected against possible discrimination.
