A Happier, Healthier, More Effective Workplace

An efficient workplace environment begins with a healthy team of individuals. If your workers are struggling with mental health or learning difficulties it can affect their performance and absenteeism.

We offer specialist cognition and learning assessments as well as the confirmation of difficulties identified in childhood, such as autism and ADHD, for employees, trainees and apprentices in need of support at work. We also provide recommendations on how best to support your employees in his/her role, in our comprehensive report, following one 2-3 hour appointment at your employee’s workplace. Our work can enable them to perform their own jobs more effectively.

In addition we are here to provide support for adults diagnosed with specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia. Such individuals often experience slow processing speed or weak working memory, yet there are many ways they can be supported at work. The effective assessment of individuals’ need enables employers to consider adjustments that will assist employees in their roles, leading to greater job satisfaction and success for both the individuals and the team, as well as a reduction in employee absenteeism, and enhanced productivity at work.

At YPS Psychology we offer a range of services to employers that facilitate the optimal performance of every employee, including:

  • Diagnostic dyslexia assessments for the workplace
  • Identification of indicators regarding other specific learning difficulties (SpLD), such as Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Assessments of the impact of previously diagnosed SpLD on work performance
  • Assessments of the impact of a SpLD on employee work performance
  • Advice on management of Dyslexia in the workplace
  • Advice on management of Dyspraxia in the workplace
  • Advice on management of ADD/ADHD in the workplace
  • Advice on reasonable adjustments in the workplace

We also provide assessments of students for SpLD who have autism and hearing impairments. With years of experience working closely with individuals on the autism spectrum we are able to administer tests in a sensitive manner. Our assessments also cover English as an Additional Language (or EAL) students in FE and HE settings. We give careful consideration of linguistic and cultural variations among EAL students that may adversely affect their test performance.

In addition we also examine academic-related needs, supporting applications for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) and Access Arrangements, including: Assessment of Specific Learning Difficulties, for Dyslexia, ADHD, Dyspraxia, and Dyscalculia.
