What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Dyslexia?
Assessments for young and older children may include:(9,10)
- Vocabulary test Determines vocabulary aptitude compared with children of similar age
Phonological test Evaluates the ability to isolate sounds in words (for example the first sound, middle sound, and last sound)
- Decoding test Evaluates the ability to quickly and accurately identify the sounds and syllables involved in a word and then blend them all together in order to pronounce the word
- Reading fluency and comprehension test Tests memory, fluidity, and comprehension when reading aloud
- Rapid naming test Measures how quickly and accurately a child can name letters, numbers, words, and colors
- Written language skills test Assesses writing ability, capacity to form narratives, and ability to spell at the appropriate age level
According to Freeman, dyslexia will be diagnosed if a child's skills in reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension are substantially and quantifiably below what is expected for the child's age, and if this causes significant problems in school, work, and daily living activities.
Diagnosing dyslexia in an adult may be slightly different. “Most of the same standardized and norm-referenced measures that are used to identify reading deficits in a child can be used to identify reading deficits in adults,” explains Katie Davis, PsyD, an educational neuropsychologist and neuroscience researcher based in New York City.
The goal of testing in adulthood is to help the person recognize their strengths and weaknesses and pinpoint areas where he or she needs assistance.
In adults, assessments may involve an evaluation of cognitive and literacy skills, as well as a handwriting test and a math test. The person will also answer questions about family background, early language and speech history, and work environment.
