Can you do assessments for dyslexia?

We are able to screen (not diagnose) for dyslexia using two different assessment tools. Screening takes about 40/60 minutes. This screening gives an indication of whether the child is dyslexic and in which areas they may struggle. A detailed report is then given to the parents with suggestions of the support which can be given to the child. This screening process costs £100.
