About Dyslexia

What is involved in a Dyslexia Assesment?

Diagnosis of dyslexia is carried out by trained educational psychologists, such as our own Dr Anna Pitt (anna.pitt@dpag.ox.ac.uk ). It will involve a series of so-called psychometric tests to measure spatial, verbal, memory, reading and spelling abilities in a standardised way to compare with the normal range of these abilities in children of that age. Someone with dyslexia shows a characteristic pattern of weaknesses and strengths in these abilities that can easily be recognised with experience.
