Dyslexia Diagnosis And Evaluation
If your child isn’t meeting expectations for reading, an evaluation can be requested to determine whether there is an accomplishment gap. The evaluation will test your child’s intellectual capacity and reading proficiency. It should also eliminate any further plausible reasons, such as environmental variables or hearing impairment.
An evaluation can be carried out by a psychologist, a neuropsychologist, a reading specialist, a speech and language therapist, an educational evaluator or a school psychologist. Additionally, you can use this evaluation to advocate your child’s interests and secure the resources and accommodations they might require.
Early intervention is crucial to help children catch up and to improve their fragile self-image, which is harmed by continued academic difficulty and peer comparisons. Reach out to our psychologists today if you think your child might be dyslexic.
