At DysGuise, Jennie provides full cognitive assessments that include advice on how best to nurture individual strengths and abilities and target the right support for dyslexia and other learning difficulties.
With this type of detailed assessment, she can identify specific learning difficulties like dyslexia or dyscalculia in people who might apparently be managing quite well in the classroom or at work.
Cognitive assessment allows us to give extensive feedback on a person’s abilities – and this feedback is focused on their strengths and how they can be used to tackle any areas of relative weakness.
An assessment can make it easier to identify what additional support could be helpful, such as extra time in exams, study skills advice and simple adjustments at work for employees.
