For all enquiries, please email Amanda (Assessment Coordinator) at
For us to best assist you, please tell us the age of the assessee, and provide a brief summary of your concerns and reasons for seeking an assessment.
If you have not received a reply within two working days, please check your junk mailbox.
We usually have a 6 to 8 week waiting list for assessments in our clinic. Please contact Amanda (Assessment Coordinator) for current availability.
We often have schools on our waiting list for services. However, once a school has commissioned work, they move onto our priority booking list as we see them as being under our long term care.
Schools can ensure regular, quick access to our services by commissioning work under an annual contract.
Where do assessments take place?
All assessments take place in our clinic, unless they have been commissioned by the child's school, in which case they usually take place in the child's school.
Is a clinic assessment suitable for my child?
Clinic assessments are only suitable for children aged six years and above, who are able to communicate verbally and engage in standardised testing.
Do you offer a tribunal service?
No, we do not attend SEND tribunals and we do not write tribunal-specific reports. These are a specific type of report written for the purpose of the SEND Tribunal. If you need a tribunal-specific report, you will need to commission an EP who offers an 'expert witness' service.
Do you involve the school?
Yes. School involvement is an essential part of the assessment, and we are only able to accept referrals where we have parental permission to liaise with the school to gather background information about the child.
Will a diagnosis be made?
Regarding children, we can diagnose three specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. We cannot diagnose autism or ADHD in children as this requires a multi-disciplinary assessment, usually led by a child psychiatrist or paediatrician. However, we can evaluate strengths and needs in these areas, providing tailored advice to help the individual move forward.
Regarding adults, we can diagnose five specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia and ADHD. This is covered in our adult diagnostic assessment. All assessments are SASC compliant.
An assessment does not guarantee a diagnosis. We can only make a diagnosis where there is supporting evidence from within the assessment.
Is the school obliged to implement the recommendations in the EP report?
Schools cannot reject an educational psychologist report on the basis that it was privately commissioned. We always work collaboratively with schools and find that our reports, (with doable and evidence-based recommendations), are well-received.
