While an assessment is not needed to begin intervention, it can be an important next step in supporting someone with dyslexia or a specific learning difference. Thought should be given to the type of an assessment, which could be a full educational psychologist assessment or a more narrow dyslexia assessment. An educational psychology assessment is typically completed by someone with a PsyD or PhD, but may be completed by someone with a Masters degree.
In some cases, a specific assessment for dyslexia may be the best next step. A dyslexia assessor is someone who has been certified to diagnosis Specific literacy difficulties (SpLD).
While dyslexia has nothing to do with an individual's vision, testing one's eyesight is an important first step in identifying the cause of reading struggles.
Vision therapy and occupational optometry can also help address vision issues, which has nothing to do with dyslexia, but can be a cause of reading struggles.
