Dyslexia is a common learning disorder that affects millions of students globally. It can be challenging to diagnose, but we believe there is a better way. Screening for dyslexia in children as young as kindergarten can be simple when you have the right tools.

MindPlay’s Dyslexia Screener can help identify if your child has signs of dyslexia. Our screener quickly and accurately discerns if a child needs additional support in reading. With the results from a quick assessment – it takes just 15-25 minutes to complete – parents and educators can begin working together to implement interventions for dyslexia so children can succeed academically and personally.

MindPlay’s Dyslexia Screener is designed to quickly identify signs of dyslexia in K-3  students. The dyslexia assessment was developed by experienced, qualified experts and is fully backed by research.

Our screener assesses phonological awareness, word reading, spelling, and fluency. Questions are tailored to each student’s grade level. Once completed, results indicate if further testing or evaluation by a qualified professional – like a psychologist – might be necessary.

Dyslexia symptoms checklist

Recognizing the early signs of dyslexia is essential to making informed decisions about intervention and progress monitoring.

Dyslexia can manifest in many ways. You should look for a combination of symptoms rather than relying on one sign alone. Common indicators that may suggest a child has dyslexia include:

  • Difficulty learning letter sounds
  • Difficulty recognizing letters
  • Trouble sounding out unfamiliar g words
  • Reading well below the expected grade level
  • Confusing similar-looking words (e.g., “was” and “saw”)
  • Difficulty understanding directions
  • Difficulty remembering the sequence of things
  • Difficulty with math facts and telling time
  • Spending an unusually long time completing tasks that involve reading or writing
  • Finding organization hard – such as keeping track of assignments or materials needed for school
