Dr Michael Thomson

I am the Director of East Court Assessments (  01843 869357.

We consist of 2 assessing Psychologists (Amanda Cannan and myself. Amanda is also a specialist teacher with a practising assessing certificate and AMBDA) and a Speech and Language Therapist who can do assessments too.

We undertake all forms of educational and psychological assessments for a variety of Specific and other learning difficulties. Prior to setting up East Court Assessment, I was Principal of East Court, a school for dyslexic children. Although we provide an Educational Psychology service we pride ourselves on out links to teaching and subsequent recommendations in our report.
