Reading now: 977

Dyslexia is a learning disability that makes it hard for children to read, spell, and plan effectively. Dyslexia occurs in the brain, and it's highly genetic; if you have dyslexia, chances are much greater that your child will have dyslexia, too.If dyslexia goes undiagnosed, a child can not only fall behind in reading but also in development of advanced language and vocabulary skills.

That, in turn, can cause her to think of herself as "stupid" or "slow" — which means it's important to pursue a diagnosis as soon as you see warning signs.A person can be evaluated for dyslexia by a knowledgeable psychologist, diagnostic specialist or learning disability specialist.

These specialists use a variety of test instruments including the Lindamood Test (for sound and phonetics), the Woodcock Johnson Achievement Battery, and the Grey Oral Reading Test, among others.Once the condition is properly diagnosed, you can set up helpful school accommodations such as phonics training that put language skills back on track and thus rebuild self-esteem.This free dyslexia self-test is designed to determine whether your child shows symptoms similar to those of dyslexia.
