Diagnostic Assessments for the Workplace: SASC Authorised

This course is for diagnostic assessors who want to extend their practice into the workplace


The vast majority of people with dyslexia will be in the workplace. This course enables diagnostic assessors to extend their practice into the workplace.

Course Description

On the course delegates will examine how to make adaptations to reports written for University students to transfer to the workplace. They will learn how to advise employers on making reasonable adjustment to comply with good practice, which makes their companies more successful commercially, and understand both the legal requirements with regards to the Equality Act, and the way Access to Work functions.

It will include:

  • Adding recommendations to a DSA report for the workplace
  • Diagnostic assessments for the workplace – what is similar to DSA reports and what are the differences
  • Legal framework (Equality Act, 2010)
  • Access to work
  • Reasonable adjustments and strategies
  • Workplace needs assessments

This training will incorporate a thematic approach to report writing for the workplace, in line with the new diagnostic report format

Course Outcome

Delegates will understand the legal framework affecting employees with SpLDs in the workplace and understand the Access to Work scheme. They will be able to identify how a diagnostic report can be adapted for the workplace, and identify appropriate recommendations for reasonable adjustments and strategies. They will understand what is different about a workplace needs assessment.


Delegates will be expected to be working with adults in the workplace, or be interested in doing so.


Delegates will need to hold a current Assessment Practising Certificate.


This training course is delivered as a full-day session beginning with coffee, and registration from 9.00am. The presentation starts at 10.00am prompt and closes at 4:15pm. Please note that lunch is provided on all full-day training courses.
