Individuals with reading difficulties are people first, possessing a wide array of abilities beyond their disability. Early screening enables timely intervention to address and support their unique learning needs.

Know the Signals.
Intervene Sooner.

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

Dyslexia can present in many ways and should not rely on one sign alone. Common indicators that may suggest a child has dyslexia include:

Get Started

Difficulty recognizing letters and learning letter sounds

Trouble sounding out unfamiliar words

Reading well below the expected grade level

Confusing similar-looking words (e.g., “was” and “saw”)

Difficulty understanding directions & remembering the sequence of things

Struggles 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
