If your child is struggling in school then you can get them back on track with a free trial of the Learning Success System
Are you concerned your 9 or 10 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?

Okay what’s your score?

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.
