What is dyslexia?

"Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”


Who can diagnose dyslexia?

Who can diagnose dyslexia?

  • Only registered psychologists are qualified to diagnose dyslexia. After your child undergoes a psycho-educational assessment, the psychologist will determine if your child has a Specific Learning Disorder in Reading (word reading accuracy).

Does my child need a diagnosis of dyslexia to receive services at New Discovery Psychological Services?

  • No, but a psycho-educational assessment does help rule out any other factors that may be influencing the individual's learning progress.

  • To claim services for income tax or insurance purposes, you need to have evidence from a psychologist that this service is required to remediate the learning disorder.
