“The QuickScreen Dyslexia test was quick and easy to complete. I was most impressed with the report which was far more detailed and useful than I had hoped. I liked that the results were presented in a visual format. The information and suggestions were useful. Thank you!”
“The report was extremely helpful. It has also given me confidence to seek further help. This was an excellent way to explore my dyslexia in a discrete manner. I would highly recommend this online adult dyslexia test!”
“I am impressed. The QuickScreen Dyslexia test demonstrates how much research has and is being done to better understand Dyslexia and, how individually to improve myself. I am to speak with my management to make reasonable adjustments.”
“I haven’t taken a dyslexia test before, but it was very comprehensive. As a consequence of the report, I have a better understanding of my condition. I have also gained full support from my workplace with more understanding and the purchase of equipment in order to help me.”
“This online adult dyslexia test was just what I was looking for. Very helpful, I have had problems all my life without knowing why. Thank you for giving me insight into this problem. As I am English and living in France I did not know where to go for an assessment. You solved my problem on that score. Thank you again you have set my mind at rest, at last.”
Hi, Thank you for all your help and patience, your customer service team is great!

Just what I was looking for. Very helpful, I have had problems all my life without knowing why (despite these problems I was awarded my PhD in 1996). Thank you for giving me insight into this problem.”
The test was recommended by the Union to my employer (HR) as I am undergoing performance and capability issues. I have submitted the results to my manager who is now in the process of organising a full assessment on me by a qualified assessor.”
As a consequence of the report, I have a better understanding of my condition. I have also gained full support from my workplace with more understanding and the purchase of equipment in order to help me.”
This is a very thorough test The report is very detailed and for me quite accurate. I was diagnosed 30 years ago when I was 8, I have sat many tests over my school life and none were as detailed as this test, surely a diagnoses could be given from the quality of this test.
I was advise almost 40 years ago that I could be on the spectrum, completing this test has been a great comfort to me. It has helped me validate and accept some of the issues I have with certain task. I feel overtime now that I know where I sit and the panic that I have felt for years will subside when I am faced with certain task. Thank you for this.”
“I compared my results with those of my family which proved to be very informative and beneficial for my mother and sister who both showed indicators of dyslexia. Thank you for the opportunity.”
“It was interesting, having never had a test but some suspicions. The overall quality and the detail of the test were largely impressive.”
“Yes. This was an excellent way to explore my dyslexia in a discreet manner.”
“Thank you! As I am English and living in France I did not know where to go for an assessment. You solved my problem on that score. Thank you again you have set my mind at rest, at last.”
“We both really liked the QuickScreenDyslexia test report, which showed you key areas of weakness, gave suggestions to improve and also told you whether you may be dyslexic and if you need further assistance. In other online tests the report was very hard to understand. It says ‘Many challenges reported’ but with no actions to take up or any suggestions to help. It doesn’t say anywhere ‘you may be dyslexic’ or ‘you are dyslexic’, which ultimately people taking the test are trying to find out.”
“Great news, light at the end of the tunnel. I have to add, over the years I have tried smaller tick lists to see if I was dyslexic, it always pointed to I was. But it really was your most comprehensive test that has enabled me to try and change things in a more positive way.
I may not be able to afford a full assessment but because your testing is so professional, I feel I can show the results to my next driving instructor.
A big sincere thank you.”
“There are several relatives who have dyslexia in my family and so I had wondered if I too had any traits. It was useful to be able to be screened online; it is convenient when you are busy working parent with little time for appointments in the week.”
I would just like to say that I have been very happy with the service and products; Quickscan and Quickscreen during my time at University. I would recommend them as effective screening tools for dyslexia and other SpLDs.

I completed the Quickscreen test and can I say we absolutely love it here. I completed it in around an hour, much more user friendly than the StudyScan and much more ‘appealing’ to complete. However the best feature of the programme is the report – it is much more user friendly and easier for the learner to understand and digest. The fact that these can be sent direct to the learner is also an added bonus for us, the ability to do this remotely is perfect I look forward to using this now on a regular basis. I will also get feedback off our learners for you.

Following a number of discussions with one of our mentees, we decided to have a look for some kind of assessment suitable for adults and found Quick Screen. We completed the assessment which was very thorough and the results indicated moderate indicators of dyslexia with significant processing difficulties. This confirmation of processing difficulties was a massive relief for the person concerned as for so many years she had believed that she was ‘stupid’. The recommendations were particularly useful and going forward it has given her the courage to declare her difficulties and will enable her to get the support she needs. Many thanks.
Family Support Organisation, UK
Much appreciated. Pleased to report the software is working well for our screenings.

The test procedures are proving to be a valid method for the identification of adults with learning difficulties both of a dyslexic and more general nature. StudyScan enables group and individual assessments to be efficiently carried out in terms of cost and time allocations. The individual profiles obtained assist with subsequent consultations in the design of appropriate strategies to cope better with difficulties of a personal, intellectual or educational kind.

We perform QuickScan upon all our first year students over two days within course confirmation; this equates to approx 800 students. We feel it is important for the correct people to run this valuable assessment so therefore support teachers and learning support assistants run the two day programme.
Sixth Form College
We’ve been working with the StudyScan Suite for around four years, applying it to students from a wide variety of backgrounds, studying a wide range of subjects. In the time we have been using this programme we have achieved near perfect accuracy in determining the learning styles of our students, and the appropriate ways to support them thereafter. The programme is very informal but thorough, and is very beneficial to our students whether they prove to be dyslexic or not.
We still found it to be the most student-friendly of the questionnaires, and quick and easy to administer. In general, student responses have been very favourable and most say they have thought it beneficial to their studies.
This means that all students should know their learning style from the beginning of the year to enable them to maximise their potential. Any students who need additional support can be offered appropriate assistance from the beginning of their courses. The retention rate amongst students who receive support is particularly good. Information about students’ learning styles can be put on the database so that it is available to all tutors.
QuickScan contributes positively towards the college’s aim for students to enjoy smooth transitions into college and to life beyond and also to improving their experiences of their journeys through learning at the college.
Sixth Form College
We had to ensure that the new equipment was used effectively so we asked the Dyslexia Association to train staff and started to use the software in our Education Departments. QuickScan was popular from the outset because it really was quick! It is also user friendly and no one was put off. Some of the staff found that they too had dyslexia. In some cases they had suspected this already but it was good that they had confirmation and could see why they found writing tasks difficult.
