Do you think your child may have dyslexia?
It is estimated that 15% of people have dyslexia. But sadly, many children go undiagnosed and untreated. A dyslexia screening helps identify if your child has dyslexia and the specific needs and areas that your child may struggle.
Here's the basics...
Parent and child meet 1:1 with a dyslexia specialist and discuss specific concerns and observations. Following the meeting, a full report will be provided to parents. The report discusses the results of the evaluation and the implications of your child's strengths and weaknesses related to literacy acquisition and application.
What you gain...
A deep understanding of your child's literacy/reading weaknesses and needs.
Personalized suggested accommodations and modifications for accessing school work.
A starting point for getting the RIGHT help through private tutoring and in school.
The right information for difficult school conversations.

Does a dyslexia screening provide an official diagnosis for dyslexia?
A dyslexia screening is an academic screening, not a medical diagnosis. This type of screening is ideal for struggling readers who have not achieved reading and writing fluency with traditional methods or through other models of intervention, have not made progress with getting help in school, or feel that the help from school is falling short.
An academic screening will provide you with the information and direction you need to help your child. But, if you desire an official medical diagnosis there are two options:
A speech and language evaluation with a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist (provided at the Dyslexia Center)
An evaluation from a neuropsychologist specializing in dyslexia.
We have a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist on staff that does full speech and language evaluations and screens for dyslexia. You can learn more about that here.
If you are interested in a psychologist that specializes in dyslexia then fill out the contact form and we can refer you to a credible child psychologist.
Here are the details of the screening...
The screening process takes approximately 90 minutes. We use a few different evaluation tools that look at all areas of literacy, including auditory processing, oral reading, comprehension, and applied spelling. From this information we gain an understanding of why your child struggles with reading skills, and what areas are the most critical for remediation.
Once the evaluation is complete, a report will be written and emailed to you. Parents are invited to come and discuss the results and the best next steps for getting appropriate help.
