Dyslexia Assessor Helen Nelson

Hello and welcome to Dyslexia Support Lancashire

Dyslexia Support Lancashire was founded by Helen Nelson with the aim of making Dyslexia and Dysclaculia assessments for Primary and Secondary pupils, College students, University students and adults more accessible, at an affordable price. 

My mission is to ensure that the assessment process is accessible, meaningful and of direct relevance to the individual. Providing reassurance, identification of strengths and difficulties and then suggesting ways forward to ensure equality and the challenging of barriers in both education and the workplace.

I am a member of the Dyslexia Guild, the British Dyslexia Association, the Dyscalculia Network and Patoss and hold a current Assessment Practicing Certificate (APC). An APC underpins a specialist teacher’s qualifications and competence, enabling me to undertake full diagnostic assessment for Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulties. When arranging an assessment, it is important to ensure that an assessor holds an APC, as it is not a mandatory requirement, but demonstrates a commitment to quality and an up-to-date knowledge of assessment procedures. All assessments undertaken are also under the guidelines issued by the Spld Assessment Standards Committee (SASC).  I am fully insured and quality assured.

Dyslexia screening- face to face or online

Dyslexia test with diagnosis- face to face or online

Dyscalculia screening - face to face only
