I specialise in educational problems with pupils and students from 6 to 16 years old.
Additionally, for people aged 17 plus, I carry out an abbreviated (and lest costly)
psychometric assessment (WASI) and full literacy or numeracy tests (WIAT) to evaluate levels of specific need.
If speed of writing is an issue, I can carry out a Detailed Assessment of Speed of Handwriting assessment (DASH 17+)

further and higher education or employment.
Please check out your exam board requirements in relation to your particular educational establishment
for assessment materials approved of for problems with literacy or numeracy.
My extensive experience includes full
assessment of underlying abilities in relation to
dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, specific language disorder, specific learning difficulties,
Statementing, access arrangements for public examinations
and Special Educational Needs (SEN) Tribunals both as
as an independent psychologist and equally "from the other side"
as the Local Education Authority Tribunal Officer.
As a private, independent psychologist, I
can be available at very
short notice to give telephone or e-mail advice and an unbiased opinion about your child.
As well as providing psychological advice,
I can advise on SEN procedures and SEN Tribunals.
I can also help to clarify previous educational psychology reports.
I am based in the South East of the UK, in
