In addition to assessments of learning disability; our expert witnesses and psychologists complete fitness to plead, mental health and neuropsychological assessments for criminal, employment, personal injury, family, immigration and educational cases.

Psychologists’ medico-legal reports are prepared for personal injury claims including: complex brain and spinal injury cases, where compensation is required for road traffic accident claims and other neuropsychological injury claims. These often include claims for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. In criminal law, we frequently assess witness evidence, fitness to stand trial, criminal responsibility, ability to serve a custodial sentence and suitability for parole. We are members of the Expert Witness Institute and the Academy of Experts.
Our expert witnesses assess employment and accident at work claims, particularly in cases where unfair dismissal or discrimination is claimed.

Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autism, ADHD, ADD & Learning Disability Testing
Special educational needs assessments are carried out to diagnose learning disability. Reports can help individuals obtain extra time in examinations, additional tuition and free equipment in education. Psychologist’s reports are prepared to the official standards required by the Department for Education for Disabled Student Allowance. The assessment process for dyslexia and dyspraxia testing includes a free 1 hour preparatory assessment and a comprehensive face-to-face diagnostic assessment lasting between 3 to 5 hours. At the end of the process you will receive a 20 page diagnostic report, assessing your needs and giving recommendations for support. You will also receive a 15 page report on reading ability. Adults also receive a 10 page report on intelligence (IQ). In employment, reports also meet the standard required by the Department of Work and Pensions for Access to Work. We carry out Workplace Needs Assessments and coaching by qualified, specialist teachers. Our psychologists also carry out mental capacity and Court of Protection Assessments. We are members of the British Dyslexia Association and the Association of Child Psychologists in Private Practice.
Our comprehensive autism assessments last approximately five hours. Parents undertake a 2 hour diagnostic interview with the psychologist using the Autism Diagnostic Interview. The client then completes intelligence tests. A parent and another professional may also complete the Adaptive Behaviour Assessment System to help diagnose a learning disability. The client is then observed using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule. At the end of the process you will a receive a comprehensive report.
