Think you may be dyslexic?

If you want to explore the possibility of being dyslexic, you are very welcome to come for a free computerised screening. The result of the screening, together with a completed checklist, can then be looked at by a Disability Advisor. They will let you know by email whether there is a reasonable possibility you are dyslexic or not. Screenings cannot diagnose but they are a useful first step and may help you decide whether to arrange a full assessment – no appointment needed.
