Please note: due to high demand for dyslexia assessments I am not currently taking any new bookings for dyslexia assessments until I catch up with the backlog.  As I do not keep a waiting list please look back in a few weeks, when I will be booking assessments again.

You can find a list of dyslexia assessors on the Patoss website, click here.  Search by postcode to find your nearest assessor and tick the APC box for a fully qualified assessor.

Welcome!  I offer efficient and friendly dyslexia assessments and advice conveniently based in Taunton, Somerset. I provide a professional service to young people in primary and secondary school, students and adults.

At the end of the assessment I will give feedback on my conclusions and then write up a jargon-free report, usually available within one week, which I am happy to discuss with you.

If you live to the east of Taunton or in Dorset and feel that Barton-on-Sea in Hampshire might be within reach, then my daughter-in-law Jenny Bowyer would be pleased to assess you or your child for dyslexia and dyspraxia as she is a fully qualified assessor.  Please see her website.

I was anxious about what the assessment would entail but Elaine put me at ease and explained the assessment and the results well so that I now know my strengths and weaknesses. She helped me to understand why I had been struggling for so long and gave useful ideas to help in my weak areas.

I provide the following services for individuals, schools, colleges, businesses and other organisations:

The tests and Elaine’s explanations of my answers gave me a full understanding of my dyslexia.  After nearly 3 hours of testing I was so pleased to have my problem properly explained to me.
