Screening (Dyslexia only)


Concept Northern can provide in depth Dyslexia Screening for individuals using approved computerised screening software such as LADS (Lucid Adult Dyslexia Screening test). As part of the test we will analyse and interpret results and provide a detailed report.

This report will detail whether a person is showing tendencies in line with dyslexia and the severity of these tendencies. If a person produces a positive dyslexia screening result we can then recommend a technical workplace assessment.


Diagnostic and Technical Workplace Assessment


Assessments are carried out on a one to one basis and identify problematic areas within the work place. The assessment and report help identify how a persons’ disability impacts on their working practice and shows where reasonable adjustments can be made.

As well as practical reasonable adjustments, the assessment will show what (if any) assistive technology recommendations can be put in place to help a disabled person fulfil their job role, remain productive and also help to ensure your organisation is doing everything possible to cater for disabled persons and abide by the Equality Act. The recommendations made can increase productivity immediately on most occasions.


Recommendations

Once an assessment has taken place a detailed report will be issued showing what reasonable adjustments and technology has been recommended and why. These could range from installing an Access Ramp for wheelchair users to using particular fonts in emails. Other adjustments could involve purchasing assistive technology which can assist computer users. Software such as Dragon Dictate for example, allows a user to dictate documents through voice recognition and can be used if an employee has trouble typing, spelling or composing sentences due to their learning difficulty. Our experienced assessors can make many recommendations and adjustments based on each individual’s circumstances. Most of these recommendations can be part funded by Access to Work.
