Dyslexia Screening and consultation

Comprehensive evaluation to determine whether dyslexia exists and to what degree.  It takes more than just test scores to accurately determine if a child has dyslexia. We look at the entire child – their genetic, developmental, and educational history; every prior testing report; their current strengths and weaknesses; and the results from 9 screening tools.  Parents will receive a detailed report and consultation that will give insight into their child’s unique gifts and learning differences.  Suggested modifications and a diagnostic plan will be included in this report.
