Having your child screened can make all the difference.
What to expect when you come in for a dyslexia assessment
When a child struggles to read, many parents do not know where to look for assistance. As a first step, FLC offers dyslexia assessments for children ages 5-18 who might have reading difficulties.
If you have a child who is struggling to learn to read, write or spell, schedule an assessment appointment with our experienced assessment team. An assessment can take place at our center or, by digital appointment to save gas and travel time. Our assessors are Zoom* savvy and will be happy to work with you online.
The assessment includes an hour meeting with your child exploring their phonemic, reading, writing and spelling skills.
Immediately after meeting with your child, you will sit down with the assessor and together, you will begin to unravel the mystery of the unexpected reading, writing and spelling struggles your child is dealing with.
After the assessment, you will receive a written report and recommendations for next steps. With our help, your child will soon be on their way to easier learning experiences.
If you are concerned about your child’s reading skills, contact Ginny Willey on her direct line at 316.440.1388 to schedule your assessment appointment today. Or, call FLC at 316.684-7323 for more information.
