Is my child dyslexic?

Could my child be dyslexic?

It’s not reading backwards.  It’s not seeing letters reversed.  It’s not mirror reading.  It’s not a visual issue at all.  Dyslexia is an inherited condition that makes it extremely difficult to read, write, and spell in your native language—despite at least average intelligence.  It’s a deficit in the phonological processing component of language.

The following are websites with lists of dyslexia characteristics to read if you are concerned about your child:
