  • Our Assessments

    At the Bloomfield Learning Centre we have an experienced team of Specialist Assessors who are qualified to diagnose dyslexia and are able to identify other Specific Learning Difficulties.

    An educational assessment takes approximately 2.5 hours.

    The results provide a full picture of each child's academic strengths and weaknesses. Using internationally standardised diagnostic materials, each assessment measures a child's academic potential and their current level of literacy attainment.
    • An initial discussion with the parent(s)…

      …to go more in-depth as to the history with literacy, education, and any other relevant family and medical information.

    • The assessment…

      …will be 1-on-1 and will take approximately 2.5 hours. The assessment will be varied and multi-sensory.

    • Receive immediate feedback…

      …from the assessor who will discuss general findings, as well as some practical learning and teaching recommendations. These will be more specific and extensive in the report received within 3 weeks.

  • The assessment includes:

    • Underlying ability (verbal and non-verbal)
    • Reading and spelling skills
    • Reading speed
    • Phonological and visual processing
    • Information processing and working memory
    • and many others!

    • The deep understand and the first hand experience of all the staff has helped us as a family understand that dyslexia requires a different attitude and method for teaching children. It has helped us and our child believe that they can achieve their full potential by using a different approach to learning.

    • When things were continually not going well at school and my child was seen as trouble and needing to spend the rest of his school life in a pupil referral unit, the Bloomfield gave us hope.

    • My son did not trust adults and became resistant to learning. He attended the Bloomfield where the teachers are so skilled and child focused they broke down these barriers to enable him to begin to learn.

    • We have a meeting with the school next week but I can’t thank you enough for your excellent assessment and words of encouragement and support. As you saw it was as much of a relief for George as us. We cannot thank you enough.

    • For Greg the Bloomfield has made the difference from a child with low self esteem to a child that is able to access and decipher the world around them.
