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.
