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 four or more of these questions, your child may benefit from a dyslexia evaluation.

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