What does a Dyspraxia Assessment involve?

At Lexxic, a dyspraxia diagnosis involves a suitably qualified and experienced assessor conducting a range of comprehensive diagnostic and advisory services as follows:

  • Pre-assessment Questionnaire and Interview - to gain a detailed understanding of the adult's difficulties, and their medical and educational history;
  • Cognitive Functioning Assessment - to gain an overview of the adult's abilities such as short term visual memory; short term auditory memory, verbal comprehension and perceptual organisation;
  • Visual Perception & Motor Co-ordination Assessment - to assess the extent to which the adult can integrate their visual and motor abilities.

For adults in the workplace, Lexxic offers the following additional services:

  • Workplace Needs Assessment - to determine how the adult's dyspraxia affects them at work and to recommend strategies to address these issues;
  • Adult Learner's Profile - a service offered in conjunction with a Workplace Needs Assessment for adults who have previously undergone a diagnostic assessment. This will also support in identifying their preferred learning style.

Reports are then written based on information gathered from the above, to highlight the results of the dyspraxia diagnosis, and make further recommendations for the individual to reach their true potential.
