Dyslexia Screening

When potential reading difficulties are identified early, it is easier to respond to the problem.

Slow learners and potentially dyslexic children can be identified from the age of 5-6 years, in time to arrange for additional reading support in primary and/or secondary school.

The Dyslexia Screening Test (DST) is designed to identify children and adolescents/teenagers who may be 'at risk' of reading difficulties.

Early screening and support can lead to improved learning and reduced emotional distress.

Alternatively, including in later years (ie K-12), a small number of subtests from the WIAT can be administered and used to obtain a Dyslexia Index Score indicative of 'risk'.

Please call 5858-1757 for additional information and/or to make an appointment.
