Tests for Dyslexia
If you think that your child may be dyslexic or if you think they are having difficulties learning to read or working with numbers, it is important to arrange a test for dyslexia as soon as possible. Between the ages of 4 – 7 children pick up skills very quickly which provides a window of opportunity to create new strategies for learning.
Ensuring early and appropriate intervention is a key to supporting your child and managing the right approach to the development moving forward in their education.
