Dyslexia screening can be the first step in the identification of dyslexia. It will:
- Establish whether a child is at risk of dyslexia and to what extent
- Provide a profile of strengths and weaknesses to highlight support and development for the child
- Help you to decide whether a full assessment is necessary
- The test takes approximately 1. 5 hrs plus feedback time.
A confidential report, outlining the results and learning interventions will be completed, followed by a follow up consultation to discuss the details.
Some individuals with apparently normal eyesight, experience discomfort when viewing print. Some report that the words appear to move, wobble or flicker while others say that the page appears too bright or the words are too close together. Those affected by the condition may skip words or lines when reading. Others report eyestrain or headaches after reading.
Screening can help determine whether you have Irlen, the severity of it and what your distortions are. The use of coloured overlays can relieve these symptoms, minimise distortions and make it easier to sustain reading, math or computer use. They can make a huge difference to reading performance and comprehension and a decrease in headaches and tension may also be noticed. The colour required is specific to each person.
