DYSLEXIA EVALUATIONS

WHAT ARE SOME THINGS THEY CONSIST OF?


• Background information: info that comes from parents and teachers about the child’s development, patterns, strength and weaknesses. If there is family
history of dyslexia, the child is most likely to have it as well.

• Oral language skills: this refers to the ability to listen and understand speech and to be able to express our thoughts through speech. Students with
dyslexia typically have a higher-level language skills but difficulty with spelling and reading.

• Word recognition:This has to do with the ability to read single printed words. The child is given a list of words to read, but they're unable to use cues to
help them read the words. The score will be based on the ability to recognize the word and the time it takes the student to read the word fluently.

• Spelling:This measures a student's ability to spell individual words from memory. Spelling is usually the most severe weakness among students with
dyslexia.
