Kerry Kearney

My name is Kerry Kearney I am a teacher with many years’ experience and a Level 7 Specialist Teacher in Dyslexia and an Assessor of Dyslexia, having gained the Assessment Practicing Certificate (APC) from the British Dyslexia Association and I am an Associate Member of the BDA.  I also fully trained to assess for Dyscalculia.
I have gained lots of experience of assessing children for Dyslexia, both those under and over 16.  I offer face to face assessments at my home or I am willing to travel in Kent, Essex and London.  I am set up to provide full online diagnostic assessments, which may be preferred as it can be carried out in your own home.  I am flexible and can offer week day appointment or weekends if this is preferable.
I am also qualified to assess for Dyscalculia for both adult and children and can diagnose this and provide recommendations about the support that is needed.
In carrying out the assessments, I am able to indicate if there are other co-occurring conditions such as: visual or auditory issues, developmental language disorder or motor co-ordination issues and can signpost you to other professionals who will be able to help.  You will receive a full, detailed report describing strengths and areas of need with recommendations on what support is required. 
I can assess if you are considering going onto Further Education and may have a specific learning difficulty and therefore may be eligible for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA).  I support schools in exam access assessments and can carry out the assessments to evidence need for reasonable adjustments, such as extra time, scribe, prompt etc.
I am passionate about the work I do in assessing adults and children who may be dyslexic so that they get the support they need and can meet their full potential. 
If you are looking for more information or to enquire about assessments then happy to help so please do contact me on 07717818039 or email me on
