Tutors & Assessors Directory

At Yorkshire Rose Dyslexia, we believe in a dyslexic friendly society, that enables every neuro-diverse person of all ages to reach their full potential.

About our Tutors & Assessors Directory

When parents ask us for names of specialist tutors, we always advice parents to speak to class teacher and if possible SENco and also to check the school’s SEN policy on Dyslexia. Some schools may carry out an assessment or ask advice from Learning Support Services, in our experience, this does not often happen.

Every school must have a SEND dyslexia policy which details the provision for dyslexic students, this should be on the school’s website. Ask your school‘s secretary if you cannot find it on website.


See our Directory of local Specialist Assessors /Tutors who are qualified to carry out dyslexia assessments and or tutoring.

The list includes the following information:

    • Name and location, contact details and where possible website
    • Specialist teaching qualifications associated with dyslexia
    • Age range i.e. child, student, adult


Assessors can assess and produce reports which help families to seek appropriate help in schools or when applying for exam arrangements. Some tutors are able to provide reports that can assist with the planning of individual learning programme. Any specific concerns and issues should be discussed and clarified with tutor. This will enable a choice of options to be considered.

Yorkshire Rose Dyslexia does not recommend any individual. It is the responsibility of the parent to check for themselves the credentials of the tutor. Yorkshire Rose Dyslexia cannot accept any responsibility for any advice or information given by any tutor on the list.
