Many friends ask me why I suspected that my daughter was dyslexic. Here is a good list that I took from The Center for the Study of Learning as a reference.
Q: What are the signs of dyslexia?
A: The problems displayed by individuals with dyslexia involve difficulties in acquiring and using reading and writing skills. Problems experienced by dyslexics include:
– Learning to speak
– Organizing written and spoken language
– Learning letters and their sounds
– Memorizing number fact
– Learning a foreign language
– Correctly doing math operations
Not all students who have difficulties with these skills are dyslexic. Formal testing is the only way to confirm a diagnosis of suspected dyslexia.
