Dyslexia, Educational & Specific Learning Difficulties Assessment

What are the signs of Dyslexia / Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD)?

These are the main signs that a child / teenager may need a comprehensive psycho-educational assessment for dyslexia or specific learning difficulties as well as individualized instruction in order to cope with school:

  • Difficulty learning, understanding, and remembering what is being taught. 
  • School grades have declined and the child has difficulty coping with increased learning demands. 
  • Child does not enjoy reading, difficulty with spelling or writing in English or Mother Tongue. 
  • Difficulty paying attention in class or staying focused when doing academic work. 
  • Child can do the initial part of the Mathematics exam paper well but not the more challenging problems in the later part. 
  • Child does poorly on classroom exams. This is particularly concerning when the child has studied for a test and seems to know the material but then does not do well on the test. 
  • Child does not know how to study independently. 
  • Child appears smart but is underachieving in his/her school results. 
  • Dfficulty completing homework on time or rushes through homework without concerns about correctness. 

Similar to seeing a medical doctor for a medical diagnosis before you commence treatment for health-related concerns, seeking an 'educational diagnosis' from a Registered Educational Psychologist for your child's learning difficulties, be it dyslexia or other SLD, will bring about the most informed and best possible intervention help for your child.

Although dyslexia / SLD may feel like a label, it may be more helpful to think of it as an explanation to better understand your children / teenagers' academic struggles and predicament to facilitate the best possible follow-up learning support for them.
