Dyslexia Screenings

Screenings for Children (7 – 15)

Dyslexia screenings give an indication as to whether a child is likely to be dyslexic. With this knowledge families are better able to understand and support their child.

Dyslexia screenings cannot diagnose dyslexia.

Screenings tend to involve a series and may involve short computerised tests. The tests are designed to be non-threatening and tend to be presented in a game format using pictures, words and sounds.

Screenings should look at:

Phonological processing

Working memory

Visual and auditory processing

Writing

The results should be presented in a clear and easy to interpret report.
