The Test

As mentioned in a previous post, I managed to get tested for dyslexia through the open University, so an appointment was made with an educational psychologist. I was nervous and also excited about finally knowing a answer, but more nervous about the result being that nothing wrong with me, i was just a bit slow (which I didn’t believe) so I met with Charles and started my test, it took me about three hours to complete, with a wide range of tasks to do, ranging from sounding out letters, reading, spelling logic puzzles, problem solving puzzles and a lot more.  And about five days later I got my report through, it was interesting to read things from a different point of view, with the results being i was dyslexic to the severe range of the spectrum.

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.
