- Patient Care & Health Information
- Diseases & Conditions
There's no single test that can diagnose dyslexia. A number of factors are considered, such as:
- Your child's development, educational issues and medical history. The health care provider will likely ask you questions about these areas. Also, the provider will want to know about any conditions that run in the family, including dyslexia or any other type of learning disability.
- Questionnaires. The provider may have your child, caregivers or teachers complete questionnaires. Your child may be asked to take tests to identify reading and language abilities.
- Vision, hearing and brain (neurological) tests. These can help determine whether another disorder may be causing or adding to your child's difficulty reading.
- Psychological evaluation. The provider may ask you and your child questions to better understand your child's mental health. This can help determine whether social problems, anxiety or depression may be limiting your child's abilities.
- Tests for reading and other academic skills. Your child may take a set of educational tests and have the process and quality of reading skills analyzed by a reading expert.
There's no known way to correct the underlying brain differences that cause dyslexia. However, early detection and evaluation to determine specific needs and appropriate treatment can improve success. In many cases, treatment can help children become competent readers.
Dyslexia is treated using specific educational approaches and techniques, and the sooner the intervention begins, the better. Evaluations of your child's reading skills, other academic skills and mental health will help your child's teachers develop an individual teaching program.
Teachers may use techniques involving hearing, vision and touch to improve reading skills. Helping a child use several senses to learn — for example, listening to a taped lesson and tracing with a finger the shape of the letters used and the words spoken — can help in processing the information.
Treatment focuses on helping your child:
- Learn to recognize and use the smallest sounds that make up words (phonemes)
- Understand that letters and strings of letters represent these sounds and words (phonics)
- Understand what is read (comprehension)
- Read aloud to build reading accuracy, speed and expression (fluency)
- Build a vocabulary of recognized and understood words
If available, tutoring sessions with a reading specialist can be helpful for many children with dyslexia. If your child has a severe reading disability, tutoring may need to occur more frequently, and progress may be slower.
Individual education plan
In the United States, schools have a legal obligation to take steps to help children diagnosed with dyslexia with their learning problems. Talk to your child's teacher about setting up a meeting to create a structured, written plan that outlines your child's needs and how the school will help your child succeed. This is called an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
Children with dyslexia who get extra help in kindergarten or first grade often improve their reading skills enough to succeed in grade school and high school.
Children who don't get help until later grades may have more difficulty learning the skills needed to read well. They're likely to lag behind academically and may never be able to catch up. A child with severe dyslexia may never have an easy time reading. But a child can learn skills that improve reading and develop strategies to improve school performance and quality of life.
What parents can do
You play a key role in helping your child succeed. You can take these steps:
- Address the problem early. If you suspect that your child has dyslexia, talk to your child's health care provider. Early intervention can improve success.
- Read aloud with your child. It's best if you start when your child is young, but it's never too late to start. Introducing books as a toy to babies encourages fun, learning and social interaction with caregivers. Read stories to your child. Also, try listening to recorded books with your child. When your child is old enough, read the stories together after your child hears them.
- Work with your child's school. Talk to the teacher about how the school will help your child succeed. You are your child's best advocate.
- Encourage reading time. Set aside time each day to read with your child. To improve reading skills, a child must practice reading. Encourage your child to read as skills develop. Also have your child read aloud to you.
- Set an example for reading. Designate a time each day to read something of your own while your child reads — this sets an example and supports your child. Show your child that reading can be enjoyable.
What adults with dyslexia can do
Success in employment can be difficult for adults who have dyslexia. To help achieve your goals:
- Seek evaluation and instructional help with reading and writing, regardless of your age
- Ask about additional training and reasonable accommodations from your employer or academic institution under the Americans with Disabilities Act
Academic problems don't necessarily mean a person with dyslexia can't succeed. Capable students with dyslexia can be highly successful given the right resources. Many people with dyslexia are creative and bright and may be gifted in math, science or the arts. Some even have successful writing careers.
Coping and support
Emotional support and opportunities for achievement in activities that don't involve reading are important for children with dyslexia. If your child has dyslexia:
- Be supportive. Trouble learning to read may affect your child's self-esteem. Be sure to express your love and support. Offer encouragement by praising your child's talents and strengths. Talk to the school staff so they can provide the services and support that your child needs to succeed.
- Talk to your child. Explain to your child what dyslexia is and that it's not a personal failure. Understanding this can help your child better cope with having a learning disability.
- Take steps to help your child learn at home. Provide a clean, quiet, organized place for your child to study, and designate a study time. Also, make sure your child gets enough rest and eats regular, healthy meals.
- Limit screen time. Limit electronic screen time each day and use the extra time for reading practice.
- Stay in contact with your child's teachers. Talk with teachers frequently to make sure your child can stay on track. If needed, be sure your child gets extra time for tests that require reading. Ask the teacher if it would help your child to record the day's lessons to play back later.
- Join a support group. This can help you stay in contact with parents whose children face similar learning disabilities. Support groups can provide useful information and emotional support. Ask your health care provider or your child's reading specialist if there are any support groups in your area.
Preparing for your appointment
You may first bring up your concerns with your child's pediatrician or family health care provider. To ensure that another problem isn't at the root of your child's reading difficulties, the provider may refer your child to a:
- Specialist, such as an eye doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist)
- Health care professional trained to evaluate hearing (audiologist)
- Specialist in brain and nervous system disorders (neurologist)
- Specialist in the central nervous system and behavior (neuropsychologist)
- Specialist in children's development and behavior (developmental and behavioral pediatrician)
You may want to ask a family member or friend to come along, if possible, for support and to help you remember information.
Bringing school records is especially helpful for the evaluation done by health care providers. These records can include your child's IEP or 504 Plan, report cards, written communications from school noting concerns, and a limited number of your child's work samples.
Here's some information to help you prepare for your appointment:
What you can do
Before your appointment, make a list of:
- Any symptoms your child is experiencing and the ages when symptoms were first noticed, including any symptoms that may seem unrelated to the reason for the appointment
- Key personal information, including any major stresses or recent life changes
- Any medications, vitamins, herbs or other supplements that your child is taking, including the dosages
- Questions to ask the health care provider to help you make the most of your appointment
Questions to ask may include:
- What do you think is the cause of my child's difficulty with reading?
- Are there other diagnoses that can be associated with or confused with dyslexia?
- What kinds of tests does my child need?
- Should my child see a specialist?
- How is dyslexia treated?
- How quickly will we see progress?
- Should other family members be tested for dyslexia?
- What sources of assistance or support do you recommend?
- Are there any brochures or other printed materials that I can have? Can you recommend any websites?
- Are there any local educational resources for dyslexia?
Feel free to ask other questions during your appointment.
What to expect from your doctor
The health care provider is likely to ask you a number of questions, such as:
- When did you first notice that your child was having trouble reading? Did a teacher bring it to your attention?
- How is your child doing academically in the classroom?
- At what age did your child start talking?
- Have you tried any reading interventions? If so, which ones?
- Have you noticed any behavior problems or social difficulties you suspect may be linked to your child's trouble reading?
- Has your child had any vision problems?
Be ready to answer questions to make the most of your appointment time.

Does your child show difficulties in reading, writing, computing, and comprehending learning materials? Does your child show an inability to understand alphabetical symbols and cannot concentrate on his/her studies? Take this test to know if your child has dyslexia-related symptoms.
What Is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability that causes difficulties with word recognition, spelling, and reading. Dyslexia is classified as a neurodevelopmental condition and is closely related with dyscalculia (difficulties in understanding mathemetics), dyspraxia (difficulty in activities requiring coordination and movement), and dysgraphia (difficulties in writing). It causes an overall impairment in a person’s learning abilities.
Dyslexia affects around 15% of Indians. However, many people tend to ignore their symptoms, dismissing them as nothing. Some of the most common symptoms of dyslexia are reading difficulties, mixing up words, having problems with spelling, grammar and punctuation, and the inability to decode sequences.
One of the main cause of dyslexia is genes and heredity. Dyslexia is commonly detected among children whose parents and other family members had the same difficulties.

Types of tests for dyslexia
By Kate Kelly
At a glance
Different tests for dyslexia look at different skills related to reading.
These include skills like decoding and reading comprehension.
Testing for dyslexia should be done as part of a full evaluation.
If you think your child might have dyslexia , there’s only one way to know for sure. You’ll need to have your child tested for dyslexia as part of a full evaluation. Testing for dyslexia will identify specific areas of weakness in reading. (The evaluator should also test for other language and processing issues that might be at play.)
Here are examples of skills a test for dyslexia may assess:
- Phonological awareness
- Reading fluency and comprehension
- Rapid naming
When it comes to dyslexia tests, there is more than one test that can measure each skill. The exact test used will depend on the person doing the evaluation.
Here are four types of tests that are given when evaluating for dyslexia, and examples of what happens during each type of test.
Tests that assess phonological awareness
Example: Phonological Awareness (this is the name of the test, as well as the term for what the test measures)
Similar tests include: Sound Blending subtest of the Woodcock–Johnson III (WJ III), Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processes; NEPSY-II Phonological Processing subtest
Get an inside look at a dyslexia evaluation.
What it measures: A child’s ability to isolate and work with sounds.
Why it’s important: Trouble with phonological awareness is a key sign of dyslexia. That’s because phonological processing skills are the foundation for reading skills. So they’re a good predictor of the ability to read in young kids.
How it works: The evaluator asks the child to blend sounds and to segment words. For example, your child might be asked to say what’s left of the word cat if you take out the first sound.
Or the evaluator might say “ba”…“ana” and ask your child to fill in the middle sound. Middle sounds are the most difficult. Younger kids are given easier words on the test. As kids get older the words have more syllables, and the difficulty increases.
Tests that assess decoding
Example: Test of Word Reading Efficiency-2 (TOWRE-2)
Similar tests include: Word Identification and Word Attack subtests of WJ III; Word Reading and Pseudoword Decoding subtests of the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test–Third Edition (WIAT-III)
What it measures: The child’s ability to decode words quickly and accurately. It also tests the ability to recognize familiar words.
Why it’s important: Younger kids can appear to be reading at grade level when they’re really not. That may be because they’re memorizing words instead of applying the rules of phonics .
How it works: The evaluator has a child read aloud single real words and pseudowords (fake words). Fake words look like real ones but they have no meaning, such as hiff or migheron . Having to decode fake words tests a child’s ability to apply rules for matching units of sound to their written symbols in order to sound out words.
Tests that assess reading fluency and comprehension
Example: Gray Oral Reading Test (GORT-5)
Similar tests include: Passage Comprehension subtest of WJ III and Reading Comprehension WIAT-III (for comprehension); Reading Fluency subtest of WJ III and TOWRE-2 (for accuracy)
What it measures: How accurately and fluently a child can read aloud a paragraph and comprehend what was read.
Why it’s important: Instead of having kids read words in isolation, reading comprehension tests require them to read words in context. This assesses their “real world” ability to read.
Some kids seem to be reading at grade level on school tests. But sometimes those tests have picture clues that can help kids figure out the words and the meaning of what they’re reading. When reading in everyday life, kids may not have clues like these available.
Tests at school also may not capture how slow and difficult reading actually is for kids. Or that some kids may take such a long time to decode words that they can’t remember what they just read.
How it works: The child reads passages aloud and then answers multiple-choice or open-ended questions about the passage. On some tests, kids can refer back to the passage. On others, they can’t.
Tests that assess rapid naming
Example: Rapid Automatized Naming Test
Similar tests include: Speeded Naming subtest of NEPSY-II; Rapid Picture Naming subtest of WJ III.
What it measures: How quickly and easily a child can quickly name common letters, numbers, objects, and colors on a page. This skill is linked to reading fluency.
Why it’s important: Being able to see an object, symbol, or word on paper and name it quickly means a child can retrieve phonological information quickly and automatically. Kids with dyslexia typically lack this ability. That weakness can impact reading, writing, and speaking.
How it works: The evaluator gives the child cards with rows that contain various items. There are different cards, some with letters, others with numbers, colors, or pictures of common objects.
Your child names these items as quickly as possible, starting at the top left and going row by row. The evaluator records how long it takes (and the accuracy). Younger kids are typically shown only objects and colors.
What happens after dyslexia testing
The evaluator will look at the results of all the testing together. The evaluator may also look at it along with other types of tests, such as intelligence tests.
It may take a few weeks to get the results. The evaluator will put all the information together and write a report .
If testing shows that your child has dyslexia, there are next steps to follow to get help. Find out what types of dyslexia accommodations your child might be eligible for. And get tips for talking to the teacher about your child’s dyslexia .
Tests for dyslexia look at a number of skills related to reading, such as decoding, phonological awareness, and comprehension.
Evaluators look at all of the test results to identify your child’s specific challenges with reading.
If testing shows dyslexia, your child may be eligible for dyslexia accommodations.

Foire aux questions
Selon l’OMS (Organisation Mondiale de la Santé), 8 à 12% de la population mondiale présente une dyslexie ou des troubles de l’apprentissage . Les troubles dys sont plus courants que l’on ne le pense. Ils peuvent avoir de plus ou moins grosses conséquences sur la réussite scolaire, professionnelle et personnelle. C’est pourquoi faire un test de dyslexie est souvent indispensable pour votre enfant.
Mais avant cela, il faut être sûr d’avoir bien compris ce qu’est la dyslexie. Pour cela, vous devrez mettre tous vos préjugés de côtés. Non la dyslexie n’est pas gage d’intelligence. Non la dyslexie n’est pas une maladie mais un handicap. Non les enfants dyslexiques ne sont pas des enfants paresseux…
Comment savoir si on est dyslexique ?
La dyslexie varie en fonction de l’âge et des individus. Pour savoir si on est dyslexique, rien de mieux que d’effectuer un bilan orthophonique dans un premier temps. Le bilan orthophonique permet de repérer les causes des troubles d’une personne pour ensuite l’ orienter dans son projet thérapeutique. Ensuite, selon les résultats obtenus, un suivi médical chez d’autres professionnels de santé sera nécessaire ou non.
Comment déceler la dyslexie chez l'enfant ?
Il existe des tests de la dyslexie ou différents bilan orthophoniques permettant d’en attester officiellement, ce qui vous permettra d’obtenir les aides proposées par l’état. La lecture est un grand facteur pour déceler la dyslexie chez l’enfant. Mais d’autres signes permettent de repérer une dyslexie, parfois même avant l’école primaire tels que :
- Un langage tardif ;
- Une difficulté à se repérer dans l’espace.
- Une tendance à rencontrer des difficultés pour écrire son prénom ;
- Une difficulté à apprendre de nouveaux mots, à construire des phrases ;
- Une difficulté à reconnaître les lettres ;
- Une mémoire immédiate insuffisante ;
- Une incapacité à faire des rimes.
Mais les signes persistent parfois jusqu’à l’école primaire :
- Une lenteur vis-à-vis de l’écrit ;
- Une difficulté à apprendre à lire ;
- Un manque d’attention ;
- Des soucis de compréhension ;
- Une difficulté à répondre à plusieurs demandes en même temps ;
- Un problème pour différencier certaines lettres (le b et le d par exemple) ou certains mots ;
- Une difficulté pour apprendre une langue étrangère ;
- Une difficulté à découper un mot inconnu en plusieurs syllabes, à épeler, à prononcer de longs mots ;
- Une difficulté à différencier certains mots proches ;
- Une tendance à ne pas mémoriser l’alphabet ou les jours de la semaine ;
- Des problèmes de coordination, de motricité.
Qui peut détecter la dyslexie ?
Comme évoqué précédemment, le bilan orthophonique est une excellent moyen pour savoir si on est dyslexique ou non. C’est l’orthophoniste qui s’occupe de ce bilan et a la capacité de détecter ou non une dyslexie. L’orthophoniste peut repérer les troubles dys tels que la dyspraxie, la dysgraphie, la dyscalculie ou la dyslexie visuo-attentionnelle.
D’autres professionnels de santé dans le cadre dans bilan pluridisciplinaire peuvent être en mesure de détecter une dyslexie ou autre trouble dys. Il peut s’agir d’un médecin tel que le neuro-pédiatre ou pédo-psychiatre, d’un psychologue clinicien ou d’un neuropsychologue, d’un psychomotricien ou même un d’un ergothérapeute.
Quand faut-il prendre un rendez-vous orthophonique ?
Les troubles dys apparaissent parfois très tôt. La règle pour une consultation chez l’orthophoniste est la suivante : le plus tôt c’est le mieux . La plupart des difficultés de langage doivent être traitées le plus tôt possible pour éviter que la situation ne s’aggrave.
Combien coûte un diagnostic de dyslexie ?

Comment résoudre le problème de la dyslexie ?
On ne résout pas la dyslexie comme s’il s’agissait d’un problème mathématique à résoudre ou d’une maladie à soigner. Non. La dyslexie est un handicap . Il faut comprendre la dyslexie et apprendre à vivre avec. Pour cela il faut en premier lieu effectuer un traitement. Le plus tôt c’est le mieux. Un traitement chez l’orthophoniste peut durer des mois voire des années en fonction des besoins et du niveau de dyslexie. Il y a la nécessité d’un suivi médical, mais aussi d’un suivi parental attentionné et d’une cadre scolaire adaptée.
Comment faire un test de dyslexie ?
Il existe des tests de repérage en ligne pour avoir un aperçu de dysfonctionnement. Il est important de vérifier la fiabilité de ces tests sur internet. Certains permettent de réaliser un dépistage cognitif complet, d’identifier les forces et faiblesses et d’évaluer l’indice de risque de dyslexie. D’autant plus que les résultats apparaissent après 40 minutes. Mais le mieux rester de faire un test de dyslexie aux côtés de l’orthophoniste ou autres professionnels compétents.
Le test proposé ici vous permet d’obtenir un premier avis en quelques minutes en fonction du vécu de l’enfant mais il ne remplace en aucun cas le diagnostic officiel d’un professionnel. Il est néanmoins suffisant pour savoir si la formation proposée par Séquoia Education peut vous aider.
Quels sont les troubles de la dyslexie ?
La dyslexie est un handicap pouvant être accompagné ou non d’ autres problèmes de l’apprentissage de l’apprentissage . En effet, un enfant ayant des troubles de la dyslexie a des chances d’avoir d’autres troubles dys, selon les symptômes perçus. Cela peut être la dysphasie (difficulté de mise en place du langage oral), la dyspraxie (trouble de la réalisation du geste), dyscalculie (trouble du raisonnement, de la logique ou de l’utilisation du nombre), dysorthographie (dristaisse pour tristesse), dysgraphie (trouble de la forme de l’écriture) ou encore trouble de la concentration et de l’attention.
Est-ce que la dyslexie est considérée comme une maladie ?
La réponse est simple : non. Une maladie se soigne et peut disparaître. Ce n’est pas le cas de la dyslexie parce que c’est un handicap . Il faut donc apprendre à vivre avec et s’y adapter. Il est possible qu’après s’être rendu compte des premiers symptômes d’entamer un plan de traitement et de définir une stratégie de rééducation en sondant les capacités et les dysfonctionnements du patient. Mais malgré une amélioration, sachez qu’il n’existe aucune guérison à la dyslexie, puisque ce n’est pas une maladie mais un trouble de l’apprentissage.
Quelles sont les causes de la dyslexie ?
Il existe de nombreuses causes. Les causes de la dyslexie varient selon le type de trouble dyslexique étudié. La dyslexie est due à des différences dans les parties du cerveau qui traitent le langage. Ces différences sont parfois causées par hérédité. Selon de sérieuses hypothèses, la dyslexie est héréditaire . Dans 60% des cas environ, il existe des antécédents familiaux de ce trouble. Mais la dyslexie peut être également causée par un choc traumatique qui altèrent les capacités provenant d’un dysfonctionnement cérébral.
Est-ce que la dyslexie se soigne ?
Il n’y a pas de médicament qui permettent de soigner la dyslexie puisque ce n’est pas une maladie. Mais, en dernier recours, il est possible d’avoir recours à des médicaments s’il s’agit d’un trouble de déficit de l’attention avec ou sans hyperactivité (TDAH) étant associé à une dyslexie. La dyslexie ne se soigne pas mais un traitement proposé suite à un bilan orthophonique est souvent recommandé . Ce traitement est toujours en premier lieu médical ou paramédicale. L’efficacité est d’autant plus apparente lorsque les enfants commencent un traitement orthophonique assez tôt dans leur vie.
Qu'est-ce que la dyslexie chez l'adulte ?
Les adultes atteints de dyslexie l’ont toujours eue , elle n’a juste pas été diagnostiquée plus jeune. La dyslexie chez l’adulte est similaire que chez les enfants à quelques différences près. Il s’agit du même handicap qui peut se distinguer sur certains symptômes , tels que :
- Des problèmes d’orthographe ;
- Une difficulté à lire, y compris à haute voix ;
- Une difficulté à résumer une histoire ;
- Une difficulté à comprendre certains traits d’humour ou certains proverbes ;
- Une difficulté à prendre des notes.
Le test de dyslexie est-il différent pour les adultes ?
Oui, le test est réalisé en fonction du niveau de dyslexie et de l’âge de la personne concerné. Les troubles de l’apprentissage ne sont pas tous vérifiables de la même façon. Le test, rappelons le, a bout pour de détecter le niveau de dyslexie. Or un test avec une exigence d’adulte attribué à un enfant et inversement n’aurait pas de sens.
À partir de quel âge pouvons-nous faire le test de dyslexie ?
Des symptômes peuvent apparaître chez l’enfant dès le plus jeune âge, des fois même à 3 ans. Mais on peut définir une dyslexie ou non qu’à la fin du CE1 seulement, vers l’âge de 8 ans. La dyslexie ne peut pas être diagnostiquée avant que l’enfant ne commence à lire et à écrire .
Y a-t-il une utilité à faire un test de QI ?
Le test de QI est à prendre avec beaucoup de précaution. Il ne reflète pas l’intelligence et ne prends pas en compte le contexte et les spécificités de la personne. Même si un test de QI peut s’avérer être efficace afin d’aborder la situation de difficultés ou d’échec scolaire d’un enfant dys, il reste insuffisant pour en conclure quoi que ce soi .

Student’s age: 13 | Professional Therapy
“I am a Speech-Language Pathologist…I know the importance of providing the right remediation. With Lexercise, for the first time, we were able to address our son’s specific reading needs and as a result his reading skills have greatly improved. Even more important to us though, his self-confidence and self-esteem have improved.”

The kids really liked working with their teacher and played their games with no arguments every single day, even on holidays, without complaint. I’m grateful for the therapy and believe it was entirely worth the investment of time and money.”

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects a person’s ability to read, write and spell, despite having normal intelligence.
Did you know dyslexia affects 5-10% of population, but this number can also be as high as 17%? 70-80% of people who experience some form of reading difficulty have dyslexia. Source: DyslexiaHelp.com
If you are an adult who struggles with reading, there is a high chance of probability you might be dyslexic, but were never properly diagnosed.
Dyslexia is primarily a language-based learning disability. People who suffer from dyslexia often tend to struggle with their language skills. They find it difficult to pronounce, spell, or write words.
Dyslexia has nothing to do with a person’s intelligence. A person with a normal intelligence level, who suffers from dyslexia, will tend to read at levels lower than that of their counterparts. This occurs mainly due to dyslexia obstructing them from reading easily.
Although with proper diagnosis, therapy, and treatment, people with dyslexia can learn and be successful, the condition remains with them throughout their lives.
If you’re having difficulty reading, you might want to review common symptoms of dyslexia . If there are similarities, your next step should be taking an online test. These free tests you can take online are mainly dyslexia checklist-related questions. After you answer the questions presented to you in these dyslexia checklists you are then given a score that will tell you if the symptoms you have can possibly be dyslexia.
Keep in mind, no dyslexia test is completely accurate. If you suspect you might have dyslexia, that hasn’t been properly diagnosed, you need to see a professional medical professional who can accurately diagnose your condition.
Proper diagnosis is important since it will put you on the right track to getting professional and help you explore possible options and treatments.

Importance of Comprehensive Evaluation
Free online dyslexia tests can give you a general idea and tell you if you have dyslexia, but they’re not a substitute for a comprehensive dyslexia exam.
A comprehensive evaluation is an essential step in diagnosing dyslexia and providing the appropriate support and accommodations to individuals with this learning disability. It is important to seek the advice of a qualified professional, such as a psychologist or educational specialist, who can accurately diagnose dyslexia and provide a personalized treatment plan.
A comprehensive evaluation is essential for accurately diagnosing dyslexia. This type of evaluation provides a comprehensive picture of the individual’s reading difficulties, academic skills, and other relevant information that can help determine if dyslexia is the cause of their struggles. The evaluation typically involves multiple assessments, including standardized tests, and input from teachers, parents, and the individual being evaluated.
A comprehensive evaluation can help determine the type and severity of dyslexia and identify any other related learning difficulties. This information is crucial for developing an effective treatment plan and providing the appropriate support and accommodations for the individual. Early detection and intervention can help prevent future difficulties in school and work and improve the individual’s overall quality of life.
A comprehensive evaluation also provides a clear picture of the individual’s strengths and weaknesses, which can help to build confidence and self-esteem. Knowing that their difficulties are related to a specific learning disability, rather than a lack of intelligence, can help individuals with dyslexia feel more empowered and motivated to overcome their challenges.
Types of Tests For Dyslexia
It’s important to note that no single test can diagnose dyslexia. A comprehensive evaluation typically involves multiple tests and assessments, as well as input from teachers, parents, and the individual being evaluated. A specialist in learning disabilities, such as a psychologist or educational specialist, can administer and interpret the results of these tests.
Below are several tests that can be used to diagnose dyslexia, including:
1. Phonological Awareness Test:
This test assesses a person’s ability to manipulate sounds in words.
2. Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) Test:
This test measures a person’s ability to quickly name objects, colors, or letters.
3. Word Decoding Test:
This test evaluates a person’s ability to read unfamiliar words accurately and fluently.
4. Reading Comprehension Test:
This test assesses a person’s understanding of what they have read.
5. Spelling Test:
This test evaluates a person’s ability to spell words correctly.
6. Writing Assessment:
This test evaluates a person’s ability to write coherently and accurately, including their ability to spell, punctuate and use grammar correctly.
This type of test measures a person’s academic skills, including reading, writing, and math, and can provide additional information about specific areas of difficulty.
Who Can Diagnose Dyslexia
A comprehensive dyslexia screening and evaluation can be conducted by a psychologist or educational specialist. It’s important to seek the advice of a qualified professional who has the training and expertise to accurately diagnose dyslexia and provide a personalized treatment plan.
These professionals are trained to diagnose and treat dyslexia and other learning disabilities and have the expertise to administer and interpret a variety of tests and assessments.
A psychologist can conduct a comprehensive evaluation for dyslexia that includes cognitive and educational assessments, as well as behavioral and emotional evaluations. They can also provide support and guidance for individuals and their families, and make recommendations for treatment and accommodations.
An educational specialist, such as a learning specialist or reading specialist, can also conduct a comprehensive evaluation for dyslexia. They typically focus on educational and academic assessments, including reading, writing, and math skills. They can also provide support and guidance for individuals in the school setting, and make recommendations for accommodations and support.
Typical Questions for Adults to Determine If You Have Dyslexia
Let’s take a closer look at some typical questions dyslexia self-assessment tests and checklists will ask.
Did You Have Trouble Learning How to Read?
While there is some variation, most kids learn to read in kindergarten or first grade . Most adults won’t usually remember the process of how they acquired reading skills. Instead, the process happened gradually over time, similar to learning how to walk.
Adults with dyslexia, however, will often recall struggling to read as kids. Perhaps you were reading behind grade level for most of the school. Or maybe you dreaded being called on to read out loud. If you were it’s likely you had some kind of learning disability and possibly dyslexia.
Do You Avoid Reading Now?
Because of their difficulties learning how to read, adults with dyslexia will often make choices that help them avoid reading. In many cases, these decisions may not have even been conscious ones.
For example, adults with dyslexia may choose a career that doesn’t require reading. Many are attracted to career paths in engineering, medicine, or arts where they can work with their hands rather than sit at a desk.
Do You Have to Read Something Multiple Times to Understand it?
Individuals with dyslexia will often struggle to read quickly. Some people even describe a sensation of words moving around the page, or of the text looking blurry. This can cause feelings of frustration, or even physical illness.
For this reason, you may find yourself reading slowly, or needing to read the same passage multiple times. You may also find that it is difficult for you to focus on reading for a prolonged period of time.
Because of these difficulties, you may also struggle to read different fonts or cursive writing.
Do You Omit or Transpose Letters When Writing?
Often, people will associate dyslexia with reading difficulties. But some of the most common signs appear in writing.
Have a friend take a look at some of your written notes. Do they see words with missing letters? Or perhaps letters like “b” or “d” are written backward?
They also might notice several misspellings. Not everyone who struggles to spell is dyslexic, but most people with dyslexia will experience difficulty spelling. You may even struggle to spell common words, or words that seem “easy” to other people.
These kinds of mistakes are common with dyslexia. It’s important to have someone else check your writing, as you are unlikely to catch these yourself.
Should You Take a Dyslexia Test To Find Out if You’re Dyslexic?
Online dyslexia tests can provide some general information about reading difficulties, but they are not a substitute for a comprehensive evaluation by a qualified professional. While online tests may ask questions and present tasks that are similar to those used in a clinical evaluation, they cannot provide a diagnosis of dyslexia.
However, Online tests are limited in their accuracy because they cannot take into account the individual’s complete history, learning style, and other factors that are important in making a diagnosis. They may also not be able to accurately assess the severity of the symptoms or the specific type of dyslexia a person may have.
Additionally, online tests can be prone to errors and may not always provide reliable results. They may not be up-to-date with the latest research and diagnostic criteria, and they may not be designed or administered by trained professionals.
It’s always good to remember that online dyslexia tests should not be relied upon as the sole source of information about a reading difficulty. It is always best to consult a qualified professional for a comprehensive evaluation.
Without proper diagnosis, there can’t be a proper treatment.

Dyslexia Screener for Adults
Adult reading history questionnaire, introduction.
The Adult Reading History Questionnaire (ARHQ) is a self-report screening tool designed to measure risk of reading disability (i.e. dyslexia) in adults (Lefly & Pennington, 2000). The ARHQ asks adults about their own reading history and current reading habits in order to estimate the risk that they may have a reading disability. Normative scores are based on actual testing, and Lefly & Pennington (2000) found that the ARHQ is reliable and valid. It is important to note that the ARHQ is only a screener and does not constitute a formal evaluation or diagnosis. If you have concerns about your reading skills, we recommend that you contact a licensed psychologist or your primary care physician about pursuing a more thorough evaluation to investigate the nature of these concerns.
Your score indicates that there is very little in your reading and learning history to indicate that you are at risk for a reading disability (dyslexia). However, if your reading skills are interfering with occupational or educational success, or you have other reasons to be concerned about your reading abilities, we recommend that you pursue an evaluation with a licensed psychologist to examine the nature of these difficulties.
Your score indicates that there are features of your reading and learning history (e.g. difficulty learning to spell, disliking reading) that may be consistent with a reading disability (dyslexia). Reading disability constitutes a very common learning disability, affecting approximately 5% of the United States population. Reading disability is characterized by slow or effortful reading, difficulty sounding out new words, and problems with spelling. If your reading skills are interfering with occupational or educational success, or you have other reasons to be concerned about your reading abilities, we recommend that you pursue an evaluation with a licensed psychologist to examine the nature of these difficulties.

Your score indicates that there are several features of your reading and learning history (e.g. difficulty learning to spell, reading slowly, disliking reading) that are consistent with a reading disability (dyslexia). Reading disability constitutes a very common learning disability, affecting approximately 5% of the United States population. Reading disability is characterized by slow or effortful reading, difficulty sounding out new words, and problems with spelling. The results of this questionnaire indicate that you have experienced some or all of those symptoms. If your reading skills are interfering with occupational or educational success, or if you have other reasons to be concerned about your reading abilities, we strongly recommend that you pursue a formal evaluation a licensed psychologist so that you can get the reading support you need, if appropriate.

[Self-Test] Does My Child Have Dyslexia?
Does your child have difficulty reading or spelling could she be dyslexic take this free test for dyslexia symptoms and bring the results to an educational psychologist or professional for further evaluation., dyslexia symptom test for children.
Dyslexia is a learning disability that makes it hard for children to read, spell, and plan effectively. Dyslexia occurs in the brain, and it's highly genetic; if you have dyslexia, chances are much greater that your child will have dyslexia, too.
If dyslexia goes undiagnosed, a child can not only fall behind in reading but also in development of advanced language and vocabulary skills. That, in turn, can cause her to think of herself as "stupid" or "slow" — which means it's important to pursue a diagnosis as soon as you see warning signs.
A person can be evaluated for dyslexia by a knowledgeable psychologist, diagnostic specialist or learning disability specialist. These specialists use a variety of test instruments including the Lindamood Test (for sound and phonetics), the Woodcock Johnson Achievement Battery, and the Grey Oral Reading Test, among others.
Once the condition is properly diagnosed, you can set up helpful school accommodations such as phonics training that put language skills back on track and thus rebuild self-esteem.
This free dyslexia self-test is designed to determine whether your child shows symptoms similar to those of dyslexia. If the results give you further concern about the possibility of dyslexia, see an educational professional. An accurate diagnosis can only be made through clinical evaluation. This self-test is for personal use only.
This free dyslexia symptom test was created from criteria developed by the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities .
Does your child complain of headaches, stomachaches, or dizziness when reading?
Is your child of average or above-average intelligence, but seems unable to read at her grade level?
Does your child have difficulty budgeting her time or following a schedule?
Does your child avoid reading altogether, or does she get easily frustrated when completing reading-related assignments?
Does it seem like your child is better at expressing himself verbally than he is at writing?
Does your child struggle to copy letters, numbers, or symbols?
After reading a passage, is your child unable to give a summary or discuss key points with you?
Does your child spell inconsistently, misspelling words she already knows?
Does your child struggle with word problems — even though he’s otherwise good at math?
Is your child’s handwriting inconsistent? Is it less legible some days than others?
Does your child ever say that words “wiggle” or “shimmer” on the page while he’s reading?
Does your child confuse his left from his right?
Does your child have difficulty sustaining attention? Does she space out or get labeled a “daydreamer?”
Does your child struggle to sound out unknown words?
When reading out loud, does your child repeat words, mix up letters, or change word order without noticing?

ANALYSIS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
This powerful software makes it possible to analyze thousands of variables and offer specific recommendations tailored to each user.
When should you use this dyslexia test?
With this assessment battery, it's possible to reliably detect a user's risk index of dyslexia in children 7 years and older .
Early detection makes it possible to minimize the developmental difficulties associated with dyslexia and get started training and improving the areas affected by it.
This assessment battery for dyslexia also makes it possible for adults to understand their risk index for dyslexia. Many adults have suffered from dyslexia and reading difficulties their whole life because they were never diagnosed with this learning disorder. While these people may have an average, or even an above average, IQ, they may have had significant trouble as students. Without early detection and the proper tools, dyslexia may affect a person's professional, social lives.
Below are some of the most characteristic symptoms of dyslexia :
People with dyslexia often have trouble correctly processing the symbols used in writing. They have trouble spelling words and expressing ideas when writing. They may be able to understand something or someone perfectly when presented orally but have trouble taking notes in class. Children and adults with dyslexia may have irregular or illegible handwriting, and trouble when writing similar words, like "dad" and "bad".
People with dyslexia often have trouble decoding information, which is why reading is so difficult. They often read slowly and have a hard time understanding the meaning of a written text, and have trouble memorizing or storing information they've read. People with dyslexia are not usually very interested in reading due to the extra difficulty it poses.
Difficulty planning tasks
Difficulties with the development of the executive functions is one of the most recurring characteristics of dyslexia. This means that any task that requires planning may be a challenge for someone with this learning disorder. Executive functions are a set of complex cognitive skills that make it possible to plan any task and divide it into steps (analyze the task, understand what you need to do, organize, determine how long it will take to carry-out, structure the work, and assess actions and adjust them as necessary).
Problems with motor coordination and spatial orientation.
Some people with dyslexia have trouble with motor coordination and have trouble distinguishing between their right and left, up and down, in front and behind, etc. This problem may cause a certain clumsiness in daily life and may lose things more often. For example, people with dyslexia may have trouble when playing sports or riding a bike.
Difficulties in professional and social areas
The reading and writing difficulties caused by dyslexia start in childhood and become more and more apparent as academic challenges become greater. There is a close relationship between academic difficulty and dyslexia, as someone with dyslexia may be labeled a "lazy" student due to the difficulties they face. Adults with dyslexia may continue to have trouble in their professional field.
Description of the diagnostic criteria questionnaire
Dyslexia is characterized by a series of clinical signs and symptoms. These indicators can help you understand the possible presence of dyslexia, which is why the dyslexia assessment adjusts the questionnaire to adapt to each user's specific diagnostic criteria and symptoms for their age.
The questions presented here are similar to those that you may find in a diagnostic manual, questionnaire, or clinical evaluation scales. However, they have been simplified to be understood and answered by almost anyone.
It is made up of a series of simple questions that can be completed by a parent or guardian, or by the professional in charge of the assessment. The questionnaire gathers questions about the following areas: Reading and writing problems (trouble reading and writing), learning and development problems (poor academic performance), and problems with psychomotricity and skills.
It is made up of a series of simple questions that can be completed by the user him or herself. The questionnaire gathers questions about the following areas: Reading and writing problems (trouble understanding written text), learning and development problems (low academic performance), and problems with psychomotricity and spatial skills (poor spatial management), or problems with social relationships (frustration, low self-esteem).
It is made up of a series of simple questions that can be completed by the user him or herself, or by the professional in charge of the assessment. The questionnaire gathers questions about the following areas: Reading and writing problems (trouble understanding written text, poor handwriting), trouble with professional and social areas (difficulty presenting written projects or writing in public), academic history (childhood academic difficulty), spatial and temporal organization (lateralization, problems with spatial orientation).
Description of the neuropsychological factors affected by dyslexia
Alterations is some cognitive skills may be an indicator of dyslexia. A general profile of the user's cognitive skills may indicate how severe the alterations caused by dyslexia are.
Problems with reading and writing and spatial and motor skills, as well as socialization and social relationships, can be caused by deficits in different cognitive skills. These are the cognitive skills and areas assessed by the Cognitive Assessment for Dyslexia Patients (CAB-DX):
7.8% above average
Divided attention and dyslexia. Divided attention is the ability to pay attention to more than one stimuli at the same time, like listening to a teacher while writing notes. People that have alterations in divided attention use more cognitive resources when doing two or more tasks simultaneously, which would make it difficult to listen to a lecture and take notes.
698 Your Score
Focused attention and dyslexia. Focused attention is the ability to focus attention on a target stimulus, regardless of the duration. You might use focused attention when listening in class or reading a book. When you get distracted, it increases the probability of missing important information, which may affect comprehension and learning. Children and adults with dyslexia may have difficulties paying attention to present stimuli
603 Your Score
7.9% above average
Short-term memory and dyslexia. People with dyslexia may have alterations in this cognitive skill. Short-term memory is the ability to hold onto a small bit of information over a short period of time, like when remembering the beginning of a sentence to understand the entire phrase. Problems with short-term memory may impede one’s ability to understand what is being said, as the information isn’t processed correctly.
510 Your Score
Visual short-term memory and dyslexia. Visual short-term memory is the ability to retain a small amount of visual information over a short period of time, like letters, words, etc. A problem in visual short-term memory may prevent one from understanding written text, as it would be difficult to remember the beginning of a sentence.
524 Your Score
Working memory and dyslexia. It’s important to keep in mind that an alteration in working memory may be a strong indicator of dyslexia. Working memory is the ability to retain and use the information necessary to complete complex cognitive tasks, like language comprehension, learning, or reasoning. A deficit in working memory may imply difficulties when understand written or spoken language.
691 Your Score
7.7% above average
Response time and dyslexia. Response time is the ability to perceive, process, and respond to a simple stimulus, like quickly and efficiently answering a specific question. People with slow reaction time often have more trouble writing quickly and fluidly.
735 Your Score
8.3% above average
Visual scanning and dyslexia. Visual scanning is the ability to actively and efficiently look for relevant stimuli in one’s surroundings using sight, like detecting punctuation and letters when reading. Poor visual scanning may interfere with the detection of the distinctive traits of different letters (b-d, for example), affecting comprehension.
585 Your Score
Planning and dyslexia. Planning is the ability to mentally organize the best way to reach a specific future goal, like when you think about how to tell a story to your friends later. People with poor planning may have more trouble planning speeches, written text, or the ideas that they read.
527 Your Score
Cognitive processing speed and dyslexia. Processing speed is the ability to process information quickly and automatically. People with alterations in processing speed take longer to understand what they read and what they want to write or explain. Slow auditory and verbal processing may cause problems when decoding letters, words, and sentences.
680 Your Score
8.0% above average
Naming and dyslexia. Naming is the ability to access a word from your vocabulary in order to name a certain concept, like when you’re easily able to remember the name of your street. An alteration in naming may cause people to use “filler words” or cause problems with reading comprehension.

Our Digital Cognitive Assessments
CogniFit digital tests are designed to measure a specific areas of cognition and are grouped together to form customized batteries based on the unique requirements of the study design and population. Learn more about our different tests and how they can support the unique needs of your study by exploring the details and demos below.
The Speed Test REST-HECOOR exercise was inspired by the classic test of Fingertip tapping from the assessment battery NEPSY (Korkman et al., 1998). The test-taker is required to keep on clicking for 10 seconds and as rapidly as possible with the mouse, or finger if using a touch-screen device, in a defined area on the screen. Data is collected as the number of clicks during the allocated time, number of clicks inside the defined area and number of clicks outside it.
Psychomotor Vigilance Test
The Resolution Test REST-SPER was inspired by the classic paradigms Go/No Go Task (Gordon & Caramazza, 1982), Continuous Performance Test (Conners, 1989; Epstein et al., 2001), and the Psychomotor Vigilance Task (Dinges & Powell, 1985). The test-taker is required to rapidly press on circles which appear on the screen and to ignore hexagons should they also appear. Embedded in the task are 16 circles-only items and 8 circles-and-hexagons items. For each item data is collected on response time, response accuracy and cursor distance from target center.
Visual Working Memory Span Test
The Concentration Test VISMEM-PLAN took as a reference the Corsi block-tapping test (Corsi, 1972; Kessels et al., 2000; Wechsler, 1945). In the first part of the task, some circles, within a fixed array of circles, light up. The test-taker is required to memorize which circles, within the array, have lit up and then try to reproduce the sequence in the right order. In the second part of the task, a delay of 4 secs is added between the first screen and the playback screen, in order to increase the time the user must retain the information.
The Decoding Test VIPER-NAM was inspired by the Boston Naming Test (Kaplan et al., 1983) and by the vocabulary test from the WAIS-III (Wechsler, 1997). The test-taker is required to click on the first letter, among four of them, that spells the name of the object depicted on the screen. For example, for the picture of an apple, the test-taker should click on the letter “A” but not on the three incorrect responses (C, P, M) also present on the screen.
Multimodal Lexical Memory Test
The Identification Test COM-NAM is based on the Boston Naming Test (Kaplan et al., 1983) and by the vocabulary test from the WAIS-III (Wechsler, 1997). For each object shown, the test-taker must choose from three possibilities: 1) the item is presented for the first time in the task or 2) the last time it appeared the item was spoken or 3) the last time it appeared the item was presented as a picture.
Digit Span Test
The Sequencing Test WOM-ASM is based on the classic direct and indirect digit test of the WAIS-III (Wechsler, 1997). The test-taker is required to remember and reproduce increasingly longer number sequences, which appear, each in its turn, on the screen. The task will begin with a two- -number sequence.
The Equivalencies Test INH-REST was based on the classic Stroop test (Stroop, 1935). The test-taker is asked to press on the spacebar (go action) only if the color names on the screen are printed in the matching color and to refrain from pressing (no-go) if the color of the letters does not match the printed color name.
Divided Attention Test
The Simultaneity Test DIAT-SHIF stems from the classic Stroop test (Stroop, 1935), the Vienna Test System (Whiteside, 2002), and the Test of Variables of Attention (Greenberg et al., 1996). The test-taker is required to accurately follow a ball moving and turning in all directions on the screen while, at the same time, performing a variant of the Stroop test.
The brain and dyslexia
Dyslexia affects 10% of the global population, affecting people’s ability to read, write, and easily decode the written alphabet in general. There are about 700 million adults and children with this learning disorder, and luckily, technological advances in neuro-imaging have made it possible to understand more about the brain and dyslexia than ever before. Some of the brain structures affected by this language learning disorder are:
1 Angular gyrus and supramarginal gyrus
These are made up of a multimodal associative area located in the temporal-parietal lobe that received auditory, visual, and somatosensory information. In these regions, the neurons are specifically oriented to process the phonological and semantic aspects of language, which makes it possible to identify and categorize words.
2 Wernicke’s Area
It is located behind the primary auditory cortex, near the beginning of the lateral ridge in the left hemisphere. This area is part of the associative cortex, and makes it possible to give meaning to the things that you hear or see.
3 Broca's Area
Located in the left inferior frontal gyrus, it plays a role in the articulation of words, both internally and externally, which participated in the processing of words in short-term memory.
4 Frontal Lobe
This is where the structuring of both written and spoken thoughts, words, and language takes place.
5 Primary Auditory Cortex
Registers and processes all of the sounds that we receive, including phonemes, words, and sentences.
