Trainees Writing Diagnostic Assessment Reports

calendar31/01/2020
To support the development of trainees working toward qualification in writing diagnostic assessment reports for specific learning difficulties and following substantial review and consultation SASC has issued this updated policy. The implementation date for this policy is 31 March 2020

This policy is to clarify the circumstances in which trainees on accredited courses can gain experience within their training environment in writing diagnostic assessments for those with possible specific learning difficulties (SpLDs). Individuals are recognised as trainees only when they are on a formal accredited course leading to either HCPC registration or a SpLD Assessment Practising Certificate*.

Graduates, e.g. individuals with a level 5 psychology degree or SpLD teaching qualification, must not carry out diagnostic assessments for students with possible specific learning difficulties unless they are currently undergoing formal accredited training leading to either HCPC registration or a SpLD Assessment Practising Certificate.
