There are a number of free screening tools available to help you determine whether a child has risk factors of dyslexia. If you suspect a child has dyslexia and may need further evaluation, speak with the teacher, special education administrator and school counselor at the child’s school, consult with a psychologist, or reach out to your state’s International Dyslexia Association branch for assistance.
