Evaluations for children with suspected reading difficulties.

What is the purpose of this study?: 

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a battery of tests compiled by the Research Team in helping identify dyslexia and other reading difficulties.

Who can participate?: 

School age children, ages 6 years old to 8th grade.

What will happen in the study?: 

The child will meet with a qualified professional with our Clinical Team who will administer the testing battery to the child.  After the testing visit, a second visit will be set up to review results.  A diagnosis of a reading difficulty or dyslexia cannot be provided at this stage, however, participants will be given a report and recommendations as well as referrals for next steps if a diagnosis is necessary.

Will you/your child be paid to be in the study?: 

No, this is a non-paid study.

You will receive a report of findings, a list of recommendations on how to help the child at home and at school and any referrals necessary for obtaining a diagnosis.
