Hello, I'm a qualified FE lecturer and have recently gained the level 7 specialist qualification in Dyslexia which will allow me to do dyslexia tuition and assess and diagnose Dyslexia. I have been self employed the last year working as a specialist dyslexia tutor in HE and would now like to get set up a freelance dyslexia assessor working privately and also through agencies such as BDA, Ability net etc. I have avoided this so far due to the amount of finance it takes to get set up having to buy all the test kits, pay for APC cert, training, insurance, data protection handling etc. I'm now in a position where I'm going to invest in it but would like any advice/input form anyone who already works in dyslexia assessments. I'd like to avoid little mistakes that will hold me back and also have need an idea of peak times and low times throughout the year so I can plan and structure work accordingly. Also, if anyone has any experience being contracted as an assessor through BDA, contract associates or ability net and knows how regular referrals come through that would be good. I'm trying to manage my expectations. If anyone out there has any advice I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
