Fund free NHS testing for adults for Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dyspraxia

Petition Details

Allow all people to be tested for free for Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dyspraxia via the NHS by specialists.

Additional Information

The world is geared for those without additional learning needs, for sufferers it can be incredibly difficult to know where to begin when it comes to getting diagnosed with Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dyspraxia.

South West Yorkshire NHS website states “we are now offering them at a competitive price to people within our geographical area.” That price is £350 per assessment +VAT. This does not account for those in a financially unprivileged circumstances.The system is not fair and needs to change.
