Identification for adults

The Adult Checklist and Online Screener+ Profiler may be used by students over the age of 16 to identify dyslexic-type traits and also to provide suggestions to support dyslexic adults in education and employment.

The Do-It Profiler is an online screening tool for individuals aged 16+ which has been developed not only to identify traits and difficulties associated with dyslexia, but also to provide suggestions to help individuals maximize their strengths and potential.

Information on diagnostic assessments for adults and work based needs assessments can be found on the BDA webpages; both diagnostic assessments and Workplace Needs Assessments can be booked through the BDA Store.

A useful booklet for dyslexic trainees and teachers is produced by Southampton University and can be found here.
