Dyslexia Awareness Week – how dyslexia is identified

Today, as part of Dyslexia Awareness Week 2016, the British Dyslexia Association is focusing on how dyslexia is identified.

Identification can be done through a specialist assessment. An accurate assessment is vital as it can also make specific and detailed recommendations on how best to support an individual, these may include teaching strategies, exam access recommendations or workplace reasonable adjustments.
