Dyslexia Assessment

What is a Dyslexia assessment?

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability involving difficulties with reading and spelling that are not related to a child’s general level of intelligence. At Northshore Kidspace we offer testing to determine if a child has Dyslexia. We do this by using a standardized set of tests known as a Psychometric Assessment. For Dyslexia assessments, we use the WISC and WIAT tests. These measure a child’s intellectual ability and academic achievement, such as reading, written language and mathematics. We offer assessment for children aged 6 to 16.
