Dyslexia Testing Anywhere

I seriously have been stopped on the street, messaged and received phone calls over all the information that I have shared this week and that really excites me that there are some kids that have been struggling in school and will get some help.

We love the tutoring we received from Pittsburg State University, but I know some of you are halfway across the country.  I do have a friend (I will share next week) who brought her son to Kansas from California for a week, but that was in the summer and we are in the middle of a new school year.

What if I told you that you could test your child this weekend at home for dyslexia?  Pretty exciting right?  You could have an answer of whether to pursue further help or look in another direction.

I received this information from the CARRD, Inc. center when I donated to get my cool 1in 5 necklace.

Why Reading Screening?

Approximately 15-20% of our nation's children experience reading failure.

Does your child or student struggle with reading?

Does your child or student sound out the first part of a word and then guess the rest of it?

Is your child or student falling behind his or her class in reading?

Does your child or student get upset when reading?

What is the Reading Screening?

The Reading Screening is your tool to help identify strengths and weaknesses in your child's or student's reading.

It provides a detailed report identifying areas of difficulty that can be used to develop specialized reading interventions.

It can be administered anytime, anywhere.

ReadingScreening.org

  • Easy to Use
  • Step by step instructions
  • Based on Research
  • Highly Accurate
  • Professional Report
Profits support children with dyslexia.  Reading Screening only charges $25.00 per student per assessment and it only takes about 45 minutes.

What are you waiting for?

Disclaimer:  We have not used the Reading Screening tool, but Dr. Hurford who we worked closely with wrote both this test and the one my little man went through at PSU.  I assume this is a more condensed version without the ADHD screening.  If you do try it, let me know what you thought!

Have a fabulous weekend and there will be much more on dyslexia next week.  Posts from Dr. Hurford and my friend in California are already scheduled.  If you want to make sure you don't miss a post, click on the follow by email box at the top of the right hand side bar.  I promise I will send no spam and you will get the posts in your inbox as soon as I publish them.
