About the Dyslexia Testing Specialist
Reading and reading comprehension affects every aspect of learning. In fact writing is the last item to develop only after they learn to read. If a student cannot read, they cannot perform math functions well since math is usually tested through word problems. Dyslexia is the most common form of a learning disability. It usually runs in a family and parents recognize it even when they barely understand it.
I like to talk to my parents and find out their concerns first and family history. There are usually behaviors their children have displayed which causes them to become concerned in the first place.
I then advise them that the public school district they are currently in is the sole decider of the services the school will provide. That school district can comply with educational testing requests from parents or create diversions to delay testing or simply say they do not think there is an educational need for testing at that time. One never knows what they will say. My testing methods and protocols are exactly the same as theirs. They are not required to accept them if they do not want to.
The dyslexia testing assessment usually takes from 1.5 to 2 hours for little ones. Parents should bring several items from the student’s cumulative folder at their school to dyslexia testing and fill out some information to begin the baseline report I will develop and give them.
Dyslexia Reporting and Recommendations
My report will include all data from the cognitive assessment and dyslexia assessment and school records. It will give them a definite diagnosis and include recommendations they and your school can implement to help the student improve and cope with their dyslexia if they do indeed have that problem.
Dyslexia Testing Fees
Recommendations are especially important if there is no diagnosis of a disability. One wants to understand why their child is having these problems and how to cope with those problems. The testing with the detailed report is $800.
If there is a indication of a higher level learning disability than dyslexia, then recommendations will address that issue.
