"In the same storm, but in very different boats"
a neurodivergent DiT 2023
Our aim at PSW is to support your progression through training.
We offer individualised coaching and counselling.
We are unable to assess for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Dyslexia and other specific learning disabilities
We are able to assess for general learning disabilities and dyslexia.
A full dyslexia specific assessment take 4 hours of 1-1 review with the individual and the assessor and 20 hours to write up the assessment.
There is therefore a time issue if applying for exams.
We can offer an Assessment for Reasonable Adjustments (ARA) which will highlight any weaknesses in exam processes and learning disabilities, but not give any formal diagnosis; which should be acceptable for all the royal colleges
