Many students with dyslexia can benefit from having extra support outside of their individualized learning plan. If you’re unhappy with the quality or quantity of services your child is receiving at school, it might be time to look into a private dyslexia instructor. 


In this episode, I explain step-by-step how to connect with the right service provider for your child. I break down what you should look for in terms of credentials and share key questions to ask during a consultation. 


I also talk about how professionals typically craft a well-rounded view of your child’s abilities through test scores. Finally, I discuss what you can expect in terms of cost and where to find providers in your area.
