Dyslexia can impact anyone, no matter what their age or occupation. It is a hidden disability that can often go undetected for years.

It can be hard to know if you or a loved one has dyslexia. 

Many people don’t even realize they have dyslexia, because the signs can be subtle. 

A dyslexia test is a way to determine if someone has dyslexia. The test can be done on adults or children. It involves taking a series of tests that measure different skills and abilities. 

How does it work?

what is a dyslexia test?

A dyslexia test is a tool used to identify whether or not someone has dyslexia. The most common type of dyslexia test is a reading assessment, which measures how well someone reads aloud and compares their results to the average score for people of the same age.

other dyslexia assesments

There are also tests that can be administered to measure cognitive skills related to dyslexia, such as phonemic awareness, word decoding skills, and short-term memory. A dyslexia diagnosis report will provide information about your child’s strengths and weaknesses, along with recommendations for accommodations and interventions.

This report can then be used to get help and support for the individual in school or at work. Our dyslexia testing service is easy to use and includes advice and support from our team of experts. We want to help everyone achieve their full potential, so please get in touch if you have any questions.
