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
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.
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.
Dyslexia Positive offers a range of different diagnostic reports, tailored to your specific needs.
