Re: 10year old is he Dislexic

If you can afford it, you can get a private educational psychologist to do an assessment on your son. There are tests that can ascertain whether your son is dyslexic. However, I would imagine if he was dyslexic, he would have struggled with reaing and writing before now. Is it a memory issue or is he struggling with spelling and writing all of a sudden? Talk to the school again, explain your concerns.

Re: Re: 10year old is he Dislexic

Hi Nikki, Thank you for your reply. It is reading and spelling all of a sudden that he is truggling with. I have open evening this week, I am hoping they can give me more answers. He is currently having a private tutoring lesson but I have not told school as he does not want me too, also if I tell them they may just let him plod along.
