Dyslexia affects around 10% of the population
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that can affect anyone of any age. It primarily affects the skills in one or more of: reading, spelling, writing and sometimes numeracy and language. It is a spectrum disorder, meaning there are no clear cut-off points, and it occurs across the ability range.
Look at Indications of Dyslexia to see if any combination of traits seems familiar.

A touching testimonial
Very recently I received an email ‘out of the blue’ from the mother of a young boy I assessed some years ago, here reproduced in full.
“Hi Christine, just thought I’d update you on a little boy you assessed 12 years ago, my son Doug. He had been written off as unteachable at the age of 8 but I knew he was a clever boy. Anyway as a result of your assessing him as dyslexic I knew how to move forward for him. His primary school was pretty ineffectual but I took him to private dyslexia classes and also took out a loan to send him to private school for year 6 and that really helped him. I had been so worried he would start secondary school unable to read or write. Anyhow, to cut a long story short your assessment of him as ‘gifted’ was absolutely right. He’s just finished his second year at Magdalen College, Oxford, doing a Master’s in Maths. He reads fluently, if a little slowly and still can’t spell at all of course. He is so happy and fulfilled. Think how different the outcome for him could have been. Many, many thanks Christine. Carry on the good work. Best wishes Sharon F.”
