Dyslexia Ghana offers a range of assessments for children and adults. Our assessments are carried out by experienced specialist Assessors, Teachers and Psychologists in Ghana and UK.

Before considering an assessment, you may want to look at doing a dyslexia checklist, if you haven’t already.

Diagnostic Assessments

A Diagnostic Assessment is the only way that dyslexia can be formally identified. This assessment will also provide a clearer picture of someone’s cognitive profile and their strengths and weaknesses. This will help to ensure that any support put in place is as effective as possible. Please be aware that children must be aged 7 or over for a Diagnostic Assessment to be carried out.

Workplace Needs Assessment

The purpose of an Assessment at the Workplace is to determine the Reasonable Adjustments required for an individual with dyslexia.

We offer a comprehensive service, including a pre-survey which ensures that any time onsite with you is used as efficiently as possible. We can also carry out a Diagnostic Assessment alongside the Assessment for Needs in the Workplace, if required.



Assessments vs. Screening

The only way that dyslexia can be formally identified is by a Diagnostic Assessment carried out by a qualified assessor  (i.e. a specialist teacher or educational / occupational psychologist). Screening tests can be useful, but they can only give an indication of possible dyslexic difficulties.

There are several types of screening tests available; these can be taken offline or online. Where a screening test indicates that there is a moderate to high probability of dyslexic difficulties, we would always advise a Diagnostic Assessment. This assessment will determine the precise nature of the difficulties, and how they can best be supported.
