These are the main signs that a child / teenager may need a comprehensive psycho-educational assessment for dyslexia or specific learning difficulties as well as individualized instruction in order to cope with school:
Similar to seeing a specialist medical doctor for a medical diagnosis before you commence treatment for health-related concerns, seeking an 'educational diagnosis' from experienced Registered Psychologists for your child's learning difficulties, be it dyslexia or other SLD, will bring about the most informed and best possible intervention help for your child.
Although dyslexia / SLD may feel like a label, it may be more helpful to think of it as an explanation to better understand your children / teenagers' academic struggles and predicament to facilitate the best possible follow-up learning programmes for them.
Dyslexia / Educational / Specific Learning Difficulty Assessment:
Dyslexia, Educational and/or SLD Assessment for your child / teenager, aged 6 years and above, is only conducted by experienced Registered Psychologists according to International Standards. It will include an internationally-recognised psychological report that is accepted by international and Singapore schools, examination boards as well as medical and healthcare professionals.
The report will include personalised recommendations for your child to help him/her cope better in school, home and in life. These may include extra time for local and international examinations (PSLE, GCE, IB, SAT, etc) and/or exemption from taking an additional language in school, if warranted.
Adult dyslexia assessment is also available for students, aged 17 to 24 years, who are enrolled in schools, ITEs, junior colleges, polytechnics and universities.
Assessment Fees: From SGD1300 onwards
Assessment fees are inclusive of (i) professional consultation, (ii) assessment/test and (iii) psychological report. No additional or hidden consultation charges.
