DOES MY CHILD OR STUDENT HAVE DYSLEXIA?
Numerous lists of symptoms can be found online, an example can be found online. Most list symptoms such as poor organisation and difficulty telling left from right that are not specific to dyslexia. The core problem in dyslexia is with efficient word recognition and/or accurate sounding out of unfamiliar words. Therefore, the best predictor of whether you think your child/student has dyslexia is to ask two key questions:
- Does he/she know fewer words by sight than other students of the same age?
- Does he/she have difficulty sounding out new words?
Consider an assessment for dyslexia if the answer is yes to either question.
