Worth asking who Dyslexia Assessing Org is as most should be able to say well you have very few indicators for Dyslexia but we think you have Dyspraxia. Ask who they will use and whether they can assess give help/advice and assess for other Neurodivergent conditions.

I spoke to an occupational health lady this morning and she said it's the first time someone has approached her about dyspraxia and, since it is legally a disability, she feels that they ought to be able to help with an assessment. She is going to find out where they stand with it and see what she can do. I expect the policy is a little outdated.

I feel positive again and I will let you know.
