Dyslexia (reading and writing problems)

Updated: January 2016

A child who appears to be bright when they are talking to you but is struggling to read, spell or cope with math, is a strong indicator that they may be dyslexic. It is very common for dyslexic children to be quite able, especially in the areas of creativity (art, drama, drawing, etc) and physical co-ordination (physical education, swimming, sports, model-making, etc.). However, there are marked differences in their neural links of their brain that makes it hard for them to deal with text (and often with numbers) without extra support. A reading age or grade level of two years below what you would expect from them is a strong sign of possible dyslexia.

Testing for Dyslexia

No two dyslexic children are exactly alike, and the above symptoms are just the more common ones. The list is not exhaustive, and few children would show all of these signs. However, if a child is having difficulties with spelling and writing, and has some of these signs, it may be time to think about of a professional assessment.  Child-Testing's diagnostic process is in compliance with federal law which includes, but is not limited to: standardized testing (i.e. IQ test, individual achievement test), a clinical review of the student's developmental, medical, educational, and family history, reports of test scores, teacher observations, and responses to academic interventions.  READ MORE ABOUT OUR DIAGNOSTIC PROCESS. All testing is done in your own home by a licensed school psychologist. Parents will receive a comprehensive, customized and detailed report describing your child's strengths and weaknesses, not just a computer print out. If you are paying to have your child privately tested, you should expect a high quality report.   Child Testing Solutions serves all Florida counties and cities, including: the entire Tampa Bay area, Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Panama City, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm, Boca Raton and many more. Please call for more details.

Treatment

Reading disorder and Disorder of Written Expression, like other learning disorders, falls under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Definitions of learning disabilities vary among the states, and some school districts are more willing than others to recognize specific learning disabilities. Any child, however, who has a diagnosed learning disability, including reading disorder or dyslexia, should be eligible for an Individual Education Program (IEP) that provides customized instruction at school designed to address the disability. Our report will recommend these and many other follow up treatments after testing.
