Hello everyone my name is Mary Mc Donald you are all very welcome to my website.

On my website you can see the different educational services I provide to primary, post primary and third level students. I also provide in-service dyslexia training to primary and post primary teachers.

If you would like any more information on any of the services I provide please feel free to contact me.

Dyslexia Screening Test

A Dyslexia Screening test is not a diagnostic test but it does help to raise awareness if your child is at risk of having dyslexia. The screening test will show where your child is experiencing challenges.

The test itself takes approximately one hour to complete. I have Dyslexia Screening suitable  for children, teenagers and adults.

Please note a report from an educational psychologist is not needed to complete the Dyslexia Programme.
