Psychological Assessment and Dyslexia: Parents' Perspectives
Long, Louise; McPolin, Peter
Irish Educational Studies, v28 n1 p115-126 Mar 2009
The purpose of this paper is to explore parents' perceptions of the process of having their child assessed for dyslexia by an independent Educational Psychologist and the affective impact on the child or young person. The research was carried out as part of an evaluation of the services offered by the Northern Ireland Dyslexia Centre (NIDC). The methodology involved the use of a postal survey questionnaire with both qualitative and quantitative outcomes. Findings are discussed in the context of strategies for promoting partnerships with parents and affective-academic pathways for learners with dyslexia. (Contains 3 tables and 5 figures.)
