Early Identification of Dyslexia

It is best to identify dyslexia early so that evidence-based treatment can begin early. When screening and assessing young children (ages 4-8) for dyslexia, it best to focus the assessment on the early cognitive predictors of reading development: phonemic awareness, orthographic processing, rapid automatic naming, verbal working memory, and oral language development. Parent and teacher rating scales might be used for initial screenings. For those identified as at-risk for dyslexia, direct testing might focus on the early cognitive predictors.
