You don’t have to wait until your 16 or 60 to have a dyslexia assessment. New regulation changes now mean that an assessment done from a young age (7 years or above) can now be used when a person is an adult, provided it has been done by a suitably qualified person.
There have been some very recent changes to DSA regulations for Dyslexia assessments. Provided a child has been assessed by a suitably qualified person, the diagnosis of dyslexia is for life, so you no longer need another post 16 assessment to be done.
Please congratulate Sara in once again having her APC renewal accepted at the 1st submission, I know how hard she works at ensuring that she keeps her CPD log up to date and writes the reports to the required standard.
