Dyslexia is an inherited condition that makes it extremely difficult to read, write and spell despite having at least average intelligence. Approximately 15% of the population has dyslexia, the severity of which can range from mild to severe. Many are never diagnosed. Dyslexia has NOTHING to do with overall intelligence, but with the ability to process individual sounds in words, which in turn affects word recognition, decoding and spelling.

How do I know if my child has dyslexia?

Thanks to years of research, the early warning signs are well-established. Many of these symptoms can be detected as early as preschool. If your child shows 3 or more symptoms, call 1-844-TX-LEARN to schedule a free consultation and learn more about the testing process.

A Learning Foundations’ dyslexia assessment will determine whether your child fits the dyslexic profile. This comprehensive process includes a combination of standardized tests, informal measures and work samples from school. Reviewing information about a student’s educational and family history is also a key part of the process. Students with the dyslexic profile have a unique pattern of strengths and weaknesses and a different way of learning. The sooner this unique profile is discovered, the sooner your student can be on the path to comfortable, independent reading, writing and learning.
