What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia affects an estimated 10% of the U.S. population. (image 1 in 10 kids pic)
Dyslexia is a neurological, language-based learning disability. Dyslexia, also known as developmental reading disorder, is a common reading disability resulting from the inability to process the graphic symbols that make up written language. Dyslexia manifests itself as a difficulty with reading and spelling and all levels of intelligence.
Dyslexia reading symptoms are not random; there is a consistent pattern. Some dyslexia symptoms to clue in on may be slow reading, poor spelling and difficulty decoding unfamiliar words.

You may wonder, why do I need to test for dyslexia? Do I really want the label that comes with a diagnosis? When there is a problem, it helps to understand that problem and have a label and explanation for it, because then - and only then - are we able to know where to go and what to do for help. We are offering a sample dyslexia assessment created by a dyslexia tester and tutor to help you identify if dysleixa is what you or your child may be dealing with.
