We’ve established what dyslexia is and how to spot it in your child, so what’s the next step? On today’s episode, I walk you through how to get your child assessed and identified as dyslexic. I explain who you should consult with, how to find the right neuropsychologist for your family, and the two paths you can take to get your child evaluated. I break down the pros and cons of both the public and private options, and I lay out what to do once you have the full evaluation report.
