Dyslexia Assessment

Our aim is to support and encourage parents and children through a deeper awareness of dyslexia and its profile, including areas of strength and weakness. This empowers families, and promotes stronger relationships and advocacy both at home and at school. 

How do I know if my child should be evaluated for dyslexia?

Answering the following questions may help you learn more.

  • Does your child have difficulty sounding out words phonetically, particularly new words?

  • When comparing your child to others of similar age or grade, do you feel your child's reading ability is at the same level with their peers?

  • Does your child mix up similar words such as top/pot?

  • Does your child skip or substitute words when reading aloud, or read a word correctly once on a page and miss the same word later on the page?

  • Does your child add or omit letters when reading or writing?

  • Does your child reverse letters when writing after most children of similar age have stopped doing so?

  • Does your child incorrectly copy notes from the board by missing information, misspelling, or reversing information?

  • Does your child confuse similar sounding words?  (humanity for humidity)

  • Does your child find it difficult to retrieve specific words, or mispronounce some words? (aluminum becomes amulium)

  • Does your child indicate they do not like to read, or that reading is difficult?

If you answered YES to 4 or more of these questions, your child may benefit from a dyslexia evaluation.

*The number of YES responses is not an indication of severity.
