Assessment/diagnosis

I offer an assessment/diagnosis for maths learning difficulties and dyscalculia using tests and procedures that are included in my book, ‘More Trouble with Maths: A complete guide to identifying and diagnosing mathematical difficulties’

For children, the test time is usually about an hour (which seems to be the tolerance level for most children doing work in a subject that may not be their favourite).

This is followed by initial verbal feedback. A full written report is provided later which explains the relevance of the tests and the interpretation for the individual child. The written report will also offer guidance on appropriate intervention strategies.

The process is tailored to the individual child and may include a test of current level of achievement, an anxiety questionnaire, tests for knowledge of basic facts, an exploration of the child’s thinking style for maths and informal clinical activities.
