Dyslexia Assessor Helen Nelson

Hello and welcome to Dyslexia Support Lancashire

Dyslexia Support Lancashire was founded by myself, Helen Nelson, with the aim of making Dyslexia and Dyscalculia assessments for pupils, College and University students and adults, more accessible and as reasonably priced as possible.  

My mission is to ensure that the assessment process is accessible, meaningful and of direct relevance to the individual. Whilst also 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, it is not a mandatory requirement, but demonstrates a commitment to quality and an up-to-date knowledge of assessment procedures. It also ensures the report can be used for application for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA). All assessments are written following the guidelines issued by the Spld Assessment Standards Committee (SASC).  I am fully insured and quality assured.

I can provide:

Dyslexia screening

Dyslexia full assessment and diagnosis

Dyscalculia screening 

Dyscalculia full assessment and diagnosis

Workplace Needs Assessments 

Assessments for University for application of Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) 

Exam Access Arrangements testing in schools/colleges
