Assessment & guidance for children & adults with Specific Learning Difficulties in Victoria

Looking for a cognitive and educational assessment? If so, you have found a service that has expertise in such assessments.  We are located in East Melbourne.  We provide a relatively prompt and efficient service by offering assessments on any of the 7 days of the week and by completing assessment reports within two weeks of the assessment date.

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.  Dyslexia and SLD Assessments Victoria have expertise in the assessment of Specific Learning Disorders, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia.  We use assessment (i.e., cognitive and educational assessment) as a basis for identifying types of support and modifications to help the person achieve to their potential.  For children, we also provide reviews of progress if necessary.  This is an important distinction about the services provided by the Dyslexia-SLD Assessments Victoria; that is, we do not just provide assessment, but also ongoing monitoring of progress in literacy for children in Primary School.  For older children and adults there is more of a focus on using the assessment as a basis for modifications and adjustments, such as special examination arrangements.

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.
