What It Is and Why It Matters
When a child is struggling to read, someone will probably suggest that he or she be “tested” for dyslexia. An evaluation is a more accurate word to describe the process of determining if someone has dyslexia.
Evaluation encompasses identification, screening, testing, diagnosis, and all the other information gathering involved when the student, his or her family, and a team of professionals work together to determine why the student is having difficulty and what can be done to help.
