   Course Summary
The role of the diagnostic assessor is multifaceted, with a range of responsibilities being placed upon them. This session aims to develop a deeper appreciation of assessment findings with particular reference to impact- not only on the identification (or not) of an SpLD, but also on the ability to use consideration of impact to inform recommendations which are truly meaningful.
   Course Detail
The role of the diagnostic assessor is multifaceted, with a range of responsibilities being placed upon them.  Learners who attend for assessment often have different motivations and expectations of the process.  A common aim is that the assessment will lead to change, and the drawing up of recommendations will aim to address the potential barriers to learning and move the learner forward. By working in this way, the assessment can provide a positive experience with real worth for the individual; not only answering the ‘Am I dyslexic?' question, but also facilitating the answers to the question of ‘What can I do about it?'.  Personalised recommendations allow for the best opportunity for progression, no matter what the educational environment that the learner is to return to post-assessment
