Dyslexia is normally diagnosed through an assessment by an educational or specialist psychologist. A psychological assessment provides an objective measurement of your child's abilities in a variety of areas.
The child is tested for intelligence, literacy abilities and ability to use psychological processes of imagination, creativity, reasoning with language. As no two dyslexics are the same or have the same type/severity of difficulties, an assessment is vital.
