Specific Learning differences can include:
To set up support we require a Full Diagnostic Assessment report completed in accordance with SASC guidelines. this means your report should be written by either:
- An Educational Psychologist who holds a current Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) certificate.
- A specialist teacher assessor holding a current assessment practicing certificate (APC).
What is a Diagnostic Assessment Report?
The assessment must have been carried out using adult tests such as the WAIS IV. It should include attainment tests such as the Adult Reading Test (ART), the Test of Word Reading Efficiency (TOWRE) or the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT).
If your report does not meet these guidelines, please contact us as we can advise on how to get a new assessment. If you have never been formally assessed for dyslexia and would like to access support, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please note, a JCQ Form 8 or ECHP (Education Care and Health Plan) is not excepted as proof of diagnosis for registration and Disabled Students Allowance. In some instances, this report may be accepted for support within UEL. Please contact us for guidance on this as soon as possible if you feel that this may apply to you.
