Dyslexia Assessment

Fee: $1500

Dyslexia is an unexpected difficulty in reading in an individual who has the intelligence to be a much better reader. While people with dyslexia are slow readers, they often, paradoxically, are very fast and creative thinkers with strong reasoning abilities.  Dyslexia affects approximately 20% of the population and represents approximately 80% of those with learning disorders.  Individuals with Dyslexia may struggle to read fluently, spell words correctly and learn a second language, among other challenges. These difficulties have no connection to their overall cognitive ability.

Dyslexia Evaluations include:

  • A history of your child’s language development and educational progress
  • Review of any issues relating to attention
  • Assessment of general cognitive ability, including verbal and nonverbal ability
  • Assessment of reading accuracy (untimed tests of reading individual words and nonsense words)
  • Assessment of reading fluency (timed measures of reading individual words and non-words as well as timed measures of reading connected text)
  • Assessment of reading comprehension
  • Assessment of phonological processing (blending and pulling apart individual words into their basic sounds)
  • Assessment of spelling
  • Assessment of math, including word problems and calculations
  • Written Report
  • One-hour meeting to review results
