Welcome to Yorkshire Dyslexia

Yorkshire Dyslexia is have moved!  We're now at:

16 Bull Close Lane, Halifax HX1 2EF

Yorkshire Dyslexia provides specialist dyslexia assessments for children and adults in Yorkshire. We can travel to your home or you can visit us at our centre.  We are able to work during the evenings, weekends and school holidays.

 

Who we are

We are two specialist dyslexia assessors who are experienced teachers working in primary and secondary schools, mainstream and special educational needs. We understand the difficulties experienced by dyslexic students and recognise the frustration parents may feel when their child’s full potential is not being realised.  We hold Assessment Practising Certificates from PATOSS enabling us to carry out full diagnostic assessments for dyslexia.  An assessment helps to identify a child’s learning strengths and weaknesses which we outline in a comprehensive report along with recommendations of how best to support your child at home and in school.  

 

Our friendly, supportive and consistent approach will help to unlock your child’s potential.  We are happy to discuss your child’s needs.  Please call us for a free informal consultation.  If you would like to visit us at the Yorkshire Dyslexia Centre in Halifax, please call or email to book an appointment as we may be out assessing.

 

We also offer assessments for adults and students in higher education.  Please click here for more information about these services.
