Who benefits from a dyscalculia screening test?

Anyone aged 7 and above who is struggling with numeracy.

An advanced screening test can tell you a lot about your strengths and weaknesses as it evaluates your cognitive profile using psychometric testing, for example it tests for visual reasoning, magnitude estimation, and number sense. During advanced screening tests we also look at your maths attainment to get an idea of where your skills are at and were they need to be, also identifying any maths anxiety that may be present. All this information is invaluable to parents, carers and educators as it helps with the development of appropriate support.

All advanced screening test are done face to face with an assessor who will assist in interpreting the results and providing recommendations. Your assessor will also keep an eye out for any other difficulties that could be responsible, such as ASD or ADHD.

Even if no learning difficulty or neurodiversity is identified the process can be very enlightening and cathartic.

In line with best practice, we do not conduct advanced screening test on children under the age of 7. Advanced Screening Tests do not provide evidence for examination support, administration of this support lies with the school.

What will happen on the day?

A specialist teacher with qualifications in assessing individuals will discuss your current situation and answer any questions that you may have with neurodiversity. They will guide you through the testing process, they will then explain the results and talk about further action and support. Finally, they will send you a copy of the results and any appropriate guidance sheets. You will have plenty of time with your assessor to discuss your concerns and to talk through possible support.

All of the screenings take place in a private room or online on a 1-to-1 basis. Everyone is unique. Your advisor will take this into account when discussing your plan of action.
