Dyslexia - Diagnosis

A child suspected of being dyslexic should have a complete evaluation. The child's vision, hearing, and intelligence should be tested. The tests should cover all areas of learning, not just reading.

Testing is important because many dyslexic children are not identified early. Teachers and parents may attribute problems in school to factors other than dyslexia and delay treatments that can help the child.
