Access Education


Services: Educational Assessments

Address: Milford On Sea Hampshire

Details: Access Education was founded in 1982. It arose from frequent requests for assessments based on educational rather than psychological need. Today we have a broad client base in the UK and overseas. Testing can be carried out from as young as five years old. There is no upper limit and about half of the people we assess are aged 18+. Most clients are referred (or refer themselves) due to underachievement. There are a number of reasons for failing to reach potential, of which specific developmental dyslexia is one. Although we specialise in dyslexia, our educational assessments are aimed at anyone who is underachieving at school or in the workplace.
