Unfortunately I am not able to take new clients at present for assessments.
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 could assess you for dyslexia, dyspraxia or dyscalculia as she is a fully qualified assessor. Please contact her via her website.
To find an assessor where you live please go to the Patoss website which lists qualified assessors around the country. Select one with the Assessment Practising Certificate (APC). Search by postcode.
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.
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:
- Initial screening for dyslexia
- Dyslexia assessment test for specific learning difficulties
- Dyspraxia assessments for those aged 16 and over
- Assessments for the Disabled Students Allowance for Higher Education
- Exam access arrangement assessments
- Assessments for an employee prior to applying to Access to Work
I have many years experience working with people with dyslexia. I am a committee member of the Somerset Dyslexia Association and use my experience and knowledge to answer queries at their monthly Drop In session. I am a fully qualified specialist teacher, DBS checked and a member of PATOSS (Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties).

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.
