Very often parents call the helpline asking how they get their child assessed for dyslexia. We always advise parents to seek help from their school first as ALL schools now have a responsibility to support dyslexic pupils. The level of support varies from school to school and an assessment does not always make very much difference.
Of course it is every parents choice to do what they think best and some people who carry out assessments do offer to meet with the parent and school to discuss what might be done to help the child in school.
