  5. I am a mother with two children age 8 & 6.
    My daugther is 8 and is in school doing well.
    My son is 6 and have been enrolled in kindy since 4 years
    old. I notice that he cant form a proper sentence despite
    having been to kindy for 3 years and also sending him for
    addl english classes.
    I suspect my son may have dyslexia and would
    like to bring him for an assessment.

    Please, i like to enrol as a member. How do i do that and how much will that be?

  6. At 6 he is still young to be fully diagnosed as a dyslexic. When you say that your son can’t form a proper sentence, do you mean it in speaking or writing? Additional english classes at this age might be a bit too much for him. Some kids specially boys are otherwise late bloomers. Give him a bit more time and he might surprise you!In the meantime keep an eye on his sounds and their link with the letters which we call grapheme/phoneme link. Grammar and syntax is what we can wait for to develop later.

  7. Even though i never received a reply for my last posting, I still thought to write about something which concerns me. I am a specialist teacher and has the practicing certificate to assess and diagnose children with learning difficulties(please note, difficulties and not disabilities)I was wondering that giving parents and children some printed sheets with multiple choice questions and then labeling the child as dyslexic????? where does that authority come from? Are those people assessing these children are trained, qualified and liscenced to do so? I am questioning the emotions behind the noble cause here but please remember that ability, attainment and diagnostic tests have to be valid and the person administering them MUST have the liscence to practice in order to write and sign the reports. Only then the plan for teaching intervention can be devised based on the findings. Can someone tell me that this is how your organization works?
