I have spent the past twenty five years working as a specialist teacher and assessor of children and adults with specific learning difficulties.

I have supplemented this experience with regular continuing professional development. I hold the British Psychological Society's Certificate of Competence in Educational Testing (CCET) Level A and am on their register of assessors.

I hold a current Practising Certificate (Patoss 500001894-IF4671 www.sasc.org.uk) and am therefore eligible to assess individuals for the Disabled Students' Allowance for University. I attend regular training in areas of releance such as Examination Access Arrangements, and the latest research. I am a Full Member of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA), a full member of Patoss, with appropriate professional indemnity insurance, and have an enhanced criminal records check.

To view the registration of my assessor's certificate, visit the SpLD Assessment Standards Committee website. Select the Assessors tab and search using my surname. My entry is recorded as Mrs Alison Sara Lees.
