I think my child may be dyslexic
If you feel your child might be dyslexic follow the link to the BDA website where you will be able to access lots of information.
After that, you should contact your child’s class teacher to discuss your concerns. A family history would be a strong indicator along with other factors, such as having particular difficulty with reading and spelling.
The class teacher will put together an action plan to address any difficulties. If no improvement has been made after a designated period of time, the class teacher may suggest carrying out the Dyslexia Screening Test (DST).
The Parent Partnership also offers an excellent support service to parents. Parent Partnership produce a variety of information on Dyslexia and also the SEN procedures. This information is free to parents, and is readily accessible through their website page (http://www.traffordpypps.co.uk/about-us.aspx ).
