Are you concerned your 11 or 12 year old may have dyslexia? It’s a great idea to find out now because the earlier you catch it, the easier it is to treat. Catching it early prevents other problems that would occur if it was missed. So great job on being an aware parent
Hi I’m Samantha from Learning Success and we made this video to help parents catch dyslexia early. Formalized dyslexia testing is simply not available for most people and when it is, it’s extremely expensive. We’re working to fix that. We want to make this information available to all parents who need it. Will you help us with that by hitting the like and subscribe button below?
Thanks, we appreciate that. Let's get to the test.
I’m going to ask you a series of yes or no questions. For every yes answer I want you to add a 1 to your score. At the end we’ll add that up and that will give you a better idea if your child has dyslexia. If needed, I’ll point you to a free resource to get an even more detailed report.
Does your child seem intelligent but is struggling in some subjects in school?
Does your child have slow or inaccurate reading?
Does it seem to take your child a lot of mental effort to read?
Does your child not read for pleasure?
Does your child avoid reading out loud?
Does your child have vague and imprecise language?
Does your child use generic words a lot? Words like stuff or things.
Does your child have difficulty remembering names?
Does your child confuse words that sound alike? Like tornado and volcano
Does your child confuse or skip small connector words like for, of, that, an or in when reading aloud?
Does your child have a very limited vocabulary?
Does your child seem to miss parts of conversations?
Does your child have inconsistent spelling? Spelling the same word differently at different times?
Does your child leave out parts of longer words when reading aloud?
Does your child have difficulty getting jokes or puns?
Does your child have difficulty remembering abbreviations? This includes social media abbreviations like IDK or ROFL?
Does your child have problems recognizing new words?
Does your child have an easier time answering questions if something is read out loud to them?
Does your child take longer than expected to do homework?
Does your child seem uncoordinated?
Does your child have difficulty with multiple choice tests?
Does your child have trouble remembering instructions?
Does your child ever express that they feel stupid?
Okay what’s your score?
If your score adds up to three or more, then there is a possibility of dyslexia or something related. It doesn’t mean it’s dyslexia, just that you should dig a little deeper. Here’s how to do that. We’ve created a free deep dive dyslexia screener for you. Fill it out and then it will send you a free report. That report will help you understand what type of dyslexia is likely. It will help you find the specific areas where your child is having trouble and also give you suggestions on how to fix them.
The link is in the description. It’s totally free. And we promise it will help you and your child. So jump down to the description, click the link, and do that screener now.
