Assessment Bursaries

We offer a bursary for adults in need of a Dyslexia Assessment. The bursary is in place to help towards the cost of post-16 Assessments of Dyslexia carried out at our organisation.

We also offer a bursary for students in Higher Education to access funds to help toward the cost of an Assessment of Dyslexia. Please contact us to find out if you qualify for our education bursary.

Workplace support

If you are Dyslexic, in employment and in need of support, then there are schemes that may be able to assist you.

Access to Work is a government scheme that offers practical help at work if your health or disability affects the way you do your job. Access to Work can help you and your employer by offering advice and support with extra costs which may arise because of your needs, and will offer help towards the cost of equipment you need at work.
You may be eligible for Access to Work if you are:

  • In a job, unemployed or about to start a job;
  • Unemployed and about to start a Work Trial;
  • Self-employed and your disability/health condition prevents you from doing parts of your job.

Your disability or health condition may not have a big effect on what you do each day, but may have a long-term effect on how well you can do your job.

Training and Awareness

We offer training consultancy in Dyslexia awareness in the style of a user guide to Dyslexia. The course covers perceptions of the disability through to recognition and analysis of Dyslexic characteristics enabling health and employment professionals to work more in tune with Dyslexia.
