Why take this Course?

This course has been specifically designed to update specialist teacher assessors on the SpLD Assessment Standards Committee (SASC) requirements for dyslexia/SpLD report writing and to meet Assessment Practising Certificate (APC) renewal criteria.

The attendance course runs over one day and is led by two experienced specialist assessor trainers, qualified in diagnostic assessment report writing and assessment testing for dyslexia/SpLD. Participants will be able to update their knowledge and understanding by revisiting and reviewing, aspects of statistical constructs; the new structure of a SASC diagnostic assessment report criteria for specific learning difficulties and the continuing professional development activities required in order to maintain practice standards.

  • Describe the new structure of a SASC Post-16 Years Diagnostic Assessment Report for Specific Learning Difficulties
