   Course Summary
Undeniably, the aim of a diagnostic assessment is not only to answer the ‘Am I dyslexic?’ question, but also to provide ways forward to allow the individual to achieve in their studies, or succeed more readily in employment.
   Course Detail

Integral to this process is the identification of the potential impact of our findings on the individual in the environment they are returning to.  Why does what we have found matter?

This workshop aims to look at the ‘so what' of assessment. Assessors will have the opportunity to work through some common assessment findings and consider their potential impact in real situations with real individuals. Assessors will then be equipped to build positive recommendations that are genuinely individualised and of practical use. This interactive session is suitable for diagnosticians working with all age groups and will aim to explore how, by working in this way, we truly are able to keep the learner at the heart of the process.
