If your child is having difficulty remembering letter names or sounds, learning to read and spell, difficulty remembering math facts or focussing in class, he or she should be tested as soon as possible. The earlier an identification of dyslexia is made, the more effective the appropriate remediation will be.
Testing consists of two phases: Academic and Psychological.
1) The Academic Educational Assessment uses formal and informal tests to determine whether your child has a developmental delay compared to other children of the same age. Our tests include:
- Wechsler Individual Achievement Test-III (WIAT-III)
- Lindamood Bell Auditory Conceptualization Test 3 (LAC-3)
- Comprehensive Test of Phonemic Processing (CTOPP) for phonological awareness
- Test of Word Reading Efficiency (TOWRE) for word attack skills and processing speed
- Test of Written Language (TOWL-4) for written language
- EVT-2 and PPVT-4 are used to assess oral expressive and receptive language
You will receive a written report which is confidential and you may choose to share this with your child\'s school or keep it for your own records. Recommendations for remedial teaching or therapy will be made.
2) If the results of the Academic Educational Assessment are lower than expected for the student\'s age, we may refer you to a psychologist or doctor for further intelligence testing using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children - IV (WISC-IV).
A qualified psychologist or doctor are the only professionals that can make a diagnosis of dyslexia.
