Test results = dyslexia or not?

Post by bmazurk » Wed Feb 19, 2020 3:44 pm

My daughter has struggled with reading for several years, and each year, her teachers have said they believe she's dyslexic or has some kind of reading disability. Her grandma and aunt are both diagnosed dyslexics. The school recently tested my daughter, but they cannot diagnose, so I am not sure what to make of these test results. Do these look like she may be dyslexic or is it something else entirely? Thanks for any input and suggestions on next steps. I have sent the results to a dyslexia center, but they said it will take several weeks to hear from them.
