How Is Dyslexia Detected?
The learning problems caused by dyslexia are most often noticed when they begin to interfere with a child’s schoolwork, but some signs may be apparent much earlier. Early detection of the disorder can help the child learn to cope and ensure that he or she gets adequate support at home and school from the very beginning. Dyslexic children who get support when they are in kindergarten or before are more likely to perform better later.
In general, the earliest signs of dyslexia surface in the areas of language development. Warning signs include:
- Starting to speak later than usual
- Difficulty in learning new words once speech begins
- Confusing words (especially those that sound alike)
- Mixing up sounds when pronouncing words
- Difficulty remembering the words to songs or rhymes
