Assessment & guidance for children & adults with Specific Learning Difficulties in Victoria
If you have dyslexia or a specific learning difficulty, it can sometimes be hard to know where to turn for support and help. Maybe you know someone (child or adult) who is struggling or looking for support and guidance with literacy. There’s no need to feel as if there is nothing you can do, because help is at hand. Dyslexia and SLD Assessments Victoria have expertise in giving those with Specific Learning Difficulties or dyslexia helpful strategies and understanding; over the long-term, if necessary. This is a very important distinction about the services provided by the Dyslexia-SLD Assessments Victoria; that is, we do not just provide assessment, but also ongoing support and management when appropriate and required.
We take a ‘big picture’ approach to addressing and managing SLDs (including dyslexia). Rather than advocating a single treatment or remediation approach we emphasize the need for various approaches working together in combination/ association. This approach also emphasizes the need for overall management and modifications.

Educational Assessment and Testing for Dyslexia and SLD – Quality Matters
