How to get an assessment

The term Learning Disability is not used in education, this is a health diagnosis.  Education services refer to learning difficulties, they will assess your child’s needs and put a plan in place to meet them. If your child has a Specific Learning Difficulty such as dyslexia and no other needs then they will not have a health diagnosis of a Learning Disability as this does not affect their intellectual ability.
