Benefits of Testing
At Dyslexia St. Louis Learning and Advocacy Center we believe that every child who enters our doors would benefit from a comprehensive language and literacy evaluation. There are many reasons a child may be having difficulty with reading and writing. A thorough evaluation will help shed light onto the reasons why your child is struggling.
The evaluation process generally will take 3-4 hours and is often completed in one session, if a child is able. An extensive report is provided along with program recommendations. Our qualified Educational Advocate is able to provide next steps and resources to communicate with your child’s school.
At its root, dyslexia is a language-based disorder. Research has found that IQ testing is not effective in determining which child will be a skilled reader. Spoken language skills are the strongest predictor of one’s ability to learn to read and write.
At Dyslexia St. Louis, we whole-heartedly believe that in order to unlock your child’s potential, we must look closely at language. Specific areas of language included in the evaluation are aligned with the International Dyslexia Association and American Speech Language and Hearing Association’s recommendations.
We evaluate based on these IDA and ASHA recommendations:
