Adult Assessment


SES Adult Assessment strives to support adults with Specific Learning Differences such as Dyslexia. Our Adult Assessment Service provides for individuals aged 17 years old and above. 

Adult assessments are generally but not exclusively conducted for those who are currently in the junior colleges and tertiary institutions such as Institute of Technical Education (ITE), Polytechnic and University. Some people choose to look at having an adult assessment so as to gain a better understanding of their psychological profile and which may be helpful for their current or future employers.
