How long does the assessment take?


The time taken for an assessment depends on the capabilities of the person being assessed, (e.g. their age, processing speed and attention span) and the purpose of the testing. The assessment may be split into two sessions: your assessor will discuss this with you.

The report should be available within three weeks of the assessment date. The report will be sent to the person who has paid for the assessment, unless other arrangements are made.

SPELD NZ assessments are also valid for tertiary students seeking extra support and special exam conditions due to their specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia.
