Pre-Schooler (Ages 3-5  years)

Dyslexia has nothing to do with a child’s intelligence. There are many strengths associated with Dyslexia, and they are just as common as some of the difficulties experienced. Children who may have Dyslexia should be identified and assessed as early as possible. This checklist is free and confidential. It may help you spot Dyslexia signs and help decide if the results merit further professional testing.  

Signs that a Pre-Schooler may have dyslexia include:

1. Has parents or siblings who have/had Dyslexia (Dyslexia often runs in families)
2. Mispronounce a lot of words, like saying “aminal” instead of “animal.”
3. Use word that sounds similar to the right word but has a different meaning (like saying “distinct” instead of “extinct”).
4. Has difficulty forming words correctly, such as reversing sounds in words or confusing words that sound alike
5. Has difficulty learning nursery rhymes or song lyrics that rhyme
6. Get confused between: left/right, east/west, up/down, over/under
