Dyslexia Diagnostic Assessment

A full diagnostic assessment will help you gain a better understanding of the learning differences that may be contributing to slower than expected progress at school.

A  full  Diagnostic Dyslexia Assessment takes about 4 hours in total to complete.

Benefits of a Full Diagnostic Assessment include:

  • Comprehensive written report detailing all areas of strength and identifying any areas of weakness
  • Comprehensive recommendations for how to support both at home and school
  • Peace of mind that your child will now be able to get the type of support they need

How it works

Diagnostic assessments are carried out at the ‘Icanavan’  classroom at LynebyLyne Headquarters or satellite units around The East of England.

In School/Learning Institution with their permission.

In special circumstances, in your own home.

A blended approach to assessment is available, with an element being carried out remotely via Zoom and an element being carried out face to face.

In order to establish the learning differences and any problems or difficulties, the first step is to complete the background information questionnaire. 

These will be sent to via Microsoft Forms

 A recent eye test (within 2 years) and a visual screener need to be completed before any assessment can be booked.

It is beneficial if the school also complete a questionnaire as this will give a far clearer picture of the learner. 


Once this has been received a Diagnostic  Assessment session can be booked.

A pre-assessment Zoom meeting will help build rapport and alleviate anxiety, as well as address any questions.

The assessment may be over two session, one remotely and one face to face.

Both sessions will involve standardised tests and assessments and take approximately 4 hours in total to complete.


After analysis of the results, a full DAR (Diagnostic Assessment Report) is written, including recommended support for home and school.

This can take a minimum  of 4 weeks to complete.
