Dyslexia Screening

Dyslexia is a brain-based learning disability that specifically impairs a person’s ability to develop word reading and spelling skills. These individuals typically read and spell at levels significantly lower than expected despite having normal intelligence.

Screening for dyslexia is the act of gauging the long-term risk for poor outcomes of word reading and spelling skills that are considered to significantly impede literacy development in children.
