Registered service and regulatory body

Dyslexia Sparks is a registered charity (Registered Charity No: 1168674).

Our qualified team of specialised tutors and assessors is passionate about helping individuals with dyslexia and associated SpLDs to thrive. All assessors at Dyslexia Sparks hold a current and valid Assessment Practising Certificate (APC), in recognition of their professional ability to provide a formal diagnosis of dyslexia. An APC is also required in order for a written report to be accepted as part of an application for Disabled Students' Allowances.

All assessments and reports are carried out according to SpLD Working Group 2005/DfES Guidelines for Assessment of SpLDs in Higher Education and subsequent updates.

All of our assessors hold a Level 7 (postgraduate) qualification specialising in dyslexia. This means that they have the necessary understanding and experience of dyslexia which allows them to carry out diagnostic assessments and make decisions about the presence of dyslexia.

The majority of our teaching team hold a Level 7 specialising in dyslexia teaching and support (the minimum qualification held by our specialist teachers is a Level 5 in dyslexia). They also receive comprehensive in-house training and support in order to equip them in delivering specialist tuition. All staff undertake regular and on-going CPD.

We have a Safeguarding Policy in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of those we support.
