Diagnosing Mild Dyslexia or Something Else
Hi seasoned parents - we have come to realize that my child, age 12, has something complicated going on with language that may be in the dyslexia family, that has been masked for years by very high reading scores. How do you go about drilling down into expressive language (both verbal and written) deficiencies in a way that won't make the child feel inadequate, but helps parents and ultimately teachers understand more about what's going on? Examples of the issues include reversing syllable sounds when reading aloud, and inability to compose age-level paragraphs, creating lots of academic problems despite consistently super high reading comprehension scores. Note the child has had a full psych ed eval done about 17 months ago which didn't reveal anything in this ballpark. We don't want to just wait until in person school district evals start up again post-COVID (although will definitely pursue that in the 21-22 school year, or earlier if conditions allow) - we would love to gather more data in the meantime. Helpful websites or local professionals doing in person evaluations? thanks!
