How to test for dylsexia?

What People are Saying about Dyslexia St. Louis
"Dyslexia St.Louis Learning and Advocacy Center has been an invaluable resource for our family. Mary tutors my child using the Barton Reading and Spelling System. He has made incredible progress. Not only has he increased 2 grade levels in reading, but we have seen a surge in confidence and self-esteem. Mary is patient and knowledgeable. We are fortunate to have found her. If your child is struggling to read, I highly recommend you contact Dyslexia St. Louis!"
"Dyslexia St Louis has changed my daughter's life! From the first phone interview, I knew my daughter was going to be in good hands. My eight-year daughter is now excited to go to tutoring for the first time ever. We have been going to Dyslexia St Louis for eight months and in that time, I have not only seen my daughter grow in reading but her personality has grown also."
"My daughter started at Dyslexia St. Louis a year ago and went from under grade level to now above grade level. The past year has been amazing to watch her change."
"My son has been getting tutored at Dyslexia St. Louis for about a year now. The increase we have seen in his self confidence alone has been totally worth it. He has a better understanding of himself and how he learns. His reading has improved SO much and his gained confidence is carrying over into school and daily activities. We’ve also used Sarah, the advocate, to help us get the accommodations our son needs at school. Her guidance through the entire process has been so incredibly helpful. We are so grateful for Dyslexia St. Louis."
"You will never go wrong bringing your child for tutoring at Dyslexia St Louis. The staff is incredible!!!"
The biggest difference I noticed after receiving tutoring from Mary was his increased confidence and willingness to read out loud to us. I would 100% recommend reading instruction through Dyslexia St. Louis. The gains my 2 children have made there are invaluable. They wouldn’t be where they are now without the center.
While receiving tutoring services from Kathy, I have noticed my daughter's confidence rising in her reading skills. She adores her tutor and looks forward to seeing her. We find Dyslexia St. Louis invaluable in conquering the learning challenges she faces. So for that alone, I highly recommend their services.
Finding Dyslexia St. Louis: Learning and Advocacy Center has been the answers to my prayers. Spending time with Mary learning the Barton System has given my son confidence in himself. So grateful for Mary.
Our sons biggest improvement since working with Mrs.Carolyn is his decoding of words. It's exciting to see him use the new tools that he has been taught to break down words. I would encourage anyone to give Dyslexia of St Louis Learning Center a try. The staff is amazing! They really create a family environment and always eager to help with any questions. Everyone works together to provide the best results for your child.
