Our SDCA Dyslexia Test sets the world standard in online Dyslexia Testing. We have been testing struggling readers since 2006. We possess a fast database with comparative data to quickly, properly, and accurately screen your child for characteristics of Dyslexia (recommended ages: 7 to 12).
The test will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and is absolutely child-friendly and 100% respectful of your child. Results are presented on screen directly following test completion. The on screen results page contains a self-guided WalkMe tour, which will explain to you all details and aspects of the results. You will also be able to download a PDF copy of the results. Lastly, one of our resident academics will also review the results, free of charge, and provide you with their opinion (please allow four to five days).Get Answers!

The core of our assessment is based on concepts of James M. Royer PhD from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. We developed our own components, and had our test structure reviewed by Linda Siegel PhD from the University of British Columbia.

I was impressed that the test was able to assess that my daughter needed a break and ended the test early. It was right on point. She was starting to get frustrated and just as I began to encourage her to keep going the best she could, the test ended with a message that stated she needs a break. WOW, that builds trust in me for this program. I am awaiting results so I will continue to work closely with her.

There should be an option for mixed dialects of English. We have a home where New Zealand English and Canadian English are spoken. Neither of those were options, and other versions do not match (NZ being a different dialect from AUS and CAN a different dialect from US). [DYNAREAD replies: Thank you for your input.

I am very thankful for this test and that it is offered free of charge - Thank you. My only complaint (and reason for 4 stars), is that the test ended early "to avoid added stress" for my son. On the contrary, he was enjoying the test. Obviously, he was not performing well, so the test stopped early and as such the results were inconclusive. I understand and appreciate the reasoning behind this automatic response, but I wish there was a way to bypass or reverse this feature. Perhaps a pop-up asking the parent if the child is showing signs stress and do I wish to continue? I'm not sure, I'm just disappointed that he was not able to finish. Thank you though, this was a good starting point. [DYNAREAD Replies: Thank you for your review. Our wording on terminating the test has been authored to be respectful to both the child and the parent. In reality, when the reading performance drops well below functional reading levels we have accurate and reliable grounds to discontinue and not exasperate the child unnecessarily. We clearly and sincerely applaud you for having raised a child who joyfully was willing to press on. For the majority of children continuation would induce unnecessary pain and humiliation, without adding any useful diagnostic insights for our Assessments Team. Hope this explains our motivation. At your service: The DYNAREAD Team].

I was a little skeptical when I came across this website just because the internet wasn't where I wanted to be looking for help. However, where I live there is little to no help for dyslexia and I had a hard time even finding someone who could diagnose my son. There are no special programs within my school district that treat dyslexia either. I am that frustrated mom fighting the schools and searching for answers. I came across this organization and it just seemed to good to be true, but I exchanged several emails back and fourth with the founder of this amazing organization and I cannot wait to get further into the program! I feel like this was the blessing I needed and it was in the most unlikely place for me to find help! I cant thank Hans and his staff enough, Hans has been so kind to answer all my emails and every question I had in them. When I meet with my sons school this week I am prepared with 3 pages on how they can help him and what I am doing to help him. Hans even offered to communicate with my school and educate them on my sons dyslexia so that they understand the help that he will be getting at home. I am so excited! Thank you for caring about my son when others give up!

DYNAREAD REPLY: Samantha, when we test for dyslexia we screen for specific characteristics. When a child reads at - say - Grade 3 level, when they are actually in Grade 5, then this would obviously be a concern but such a child is not at risk of entering adolescence at a low literate or illiterate level. Our drive and passion is to ascertain that EVERY child can reach their full potential and is not held back by dyslexia. Thank you for your thoughts. Much appreciated.

Watch a 10 min video explaining very clearly what Dyslexia is, and how it affects your child.
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin.
It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and / or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.
