  • A useful jumping-off point if dyslexia is a concern

This is an option popular with parents concerned about their child, as well as adults who’ve always wondered if dyslexia may be the root of their difficulties. It may give you enough confidence to insist on further assessment by a school, college or employer.

What it involves

Initial Dyslexia Screening

An Initial Dyslexia Screening typically takes between an hour and an hour and a half, which includes both the assessment and immediate verbal feedback from Holly.

The Screening involves specialised testing of the same type used during a diagnostic assessment, but in an abbreviated form. (It is NOT simply a generic computer screener.)

This is an invaluable opportunity to ask questions and get real answers from a fully-qualified dyslexia expert.


The Screening can be carried out in your home, at Holly’s Kenilworth residence, or wherever is convenient to you (e.g. a school or workplace).

Holly operates across Warwickshire and the Midlands, primarily south of Birmingham, including Coventry, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Rugby, Stratford, Solihull, and Redditch.

In certain circumstances, Holly is also able to travel further afield. Get in touch to find out if she is able to come to you.


An Initial Dyslexia Screening costs £299.

For an extra £49, the test results can be tabulated and emailed to you, to share with school, college or work.

Need an official diagnosis?

If you require an official dyslexia diagnosis, to get allowances in exams, the classroom or the workplace, you will need an In-Depth Dyslexia Assessment.

For clients who’ve already undertaken an Initial Dyslexia Screening, Holly can offer an In-Depth Dyslexia Assessment (within the next couple of months) for a reduced rate of £349.

Need further guidance?

Following the tests of an Initial Dyslexia Screening, Holly can use the findings to create a tailored plan of action for your child’s learning.

This will give you a sense of what you can do to help your child, which areas of their learning need particular focus, and which specialists could be of assistance. Find out more on the Further Guidance page.
