Trying to Get a Dyslexia Test

I recently found out I was dyslexic, after many years of trying to get a test with no success, many years ago I went to my local doctor’s surgery and asked my doctor about the problems I’ve had all my life, I thought it was dyslexia after doing a screening test online, so I said that to my doctor and asked about getting tested, so she referred me to my local learning disability team, who said this

I got a response, yet again it was much of the same, so I sent them another letter this went on, eventually 3 letters later and a lot of frustration, I got nowhere,

Many years later I started an open University course, I did not expect it to be easy, but I wanted to improve myself, i was having lots of problems, So I contacted the open University and thankfully They were very understanding and help me get a test with an educational psychologist.
