Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) diagnostic assessments for adults
This assessment is for adults who are experiencing challenges with their studies/work/everyday life and would like to know whether a SpLD may account for this.
It includes tests of academic and cognitive ability, a feedback consultation to discuss the results, and a written psychological report.
This broad-based assessment can detect all of the SpLDs:
ADHD (non-medical diagnosis)
General learning difficulties and issues with reduced processing speed and working memory can also be identified.
Assessments are conducted in-person (in our Colchester assessment room) or remotely.
If you are an adult, or are enquiring on behalf of an adult, who is still in education and supported by an Education, Health and Care Plan, we can consider you for an individual educational psychologist assessment which has a broader focus.
