DSA Assessment

For students with specific learning difficulties, support and access arrangements for instance extra time, use of a PC in exams is routinely allowed provided the correct evidence is provided. Furthermore application can be made to the Government for the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) and specialist equipment, for example a computer with specialised software and individual study support (called a non medical helper) can be provided, but evidence is required in the form of a specialist report written by an educational psychologist.  Here at the Dyslexia Center we specialise in DSA assessment and offer a market leading fee of £400. It is important that a DSA assessment is made by a practitioner skilled and trained in the diagnosis of the full range of specific learning difficulties, so we suggest that you check before you make an appointment for a DSA assessment, that the report is guaranteed to be published within two weeks and you will be evaluated for:

Dysgraphia (Illegible handwriting)
Dyscalculia (Maths)
Attention Deficit Disorder (Poor concentration)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Fee £400

Note about our fees. You will find many psychologists assessments at much higher fees. Often this is because you will be assessed by an "Associate", this means that the owner of the practice will be taking a cut from the fee. 

The DSA assessment is also ideal for clients needing access arrangements in professional examinations such as legal, accounting, actuarial, medical etc.
