Dyslexia is the world’s most widespread learning disability.

However, great progress in the field of dyslexia research means that we now know a lot about how and why dyslexia develops and about early and persistent indicators of the condition. Nevertheless, many children, adolescents and adults remain undiagnosed. This is often because health and educational professionals lack information about how dyslexia develops and how to spot the signs.

Administration of the Dysmate tests requires completion of a certification course. This can be done either through online course or by taking part in a one-day course

The courses focus on bringing participants up to date with current dyslexia research. Course participants receive information about the research behind the Dysmate tests and about their development, technical administration and how to interpret test results and test profiles. 

The Dysmate tests are grounded in the latest Norwegian and international research and map out the most well-known risk markers of dyslexia.
The certification courses provide participants with an understanding of the most up to date academic research from the field of developmental dyslexia.
In the certification course, you will learn about what the Dysmate tests measure and why, and how to read and understand the test results. You will also learn how to administer the tests so that you can carry out screening efficiently and with confidence.

Please note that the courses are only for people with relevant professional qualifications, e.g., qualified teachers (primary or secondary level), specialist teachers (SENCO or SENDCO), speech therapists, educational psychologists or similar. The courses include a free one-month trial license for the child, adolescent or adult tests. The trial license includes two free tests and can be used immediately upon completion of the certification course.
