liked this site but it cut off early when it assumed my child may be distressed with the reading part when he wasnt distressed / frustrated [DYNAREAD: Allison, when the child demonstrated performance in terms of thinking times simply becomes clearly too long, our Artificial Intelligence does not permit the test to present the child with an even more difficult task. It is wonderful to hear your child was not distressed. That's obviously very good to hear. But most children would be distressed. Plus, when thinking times are far too long, we know that fluency is seriously challenged. Hope this explains your experience].

The test was very user friendly. If it can assist with an initial assessment, it is a great tool. We look forward to the results.

A little frustrating for him when the words timed out, but otherwise helpful. [DYNAREAD: When words time out, we are well passed meaningful thinking time. We do not want to induce unnecessary stress to children].

This is was very helpful test in evaluating reading challenges for my son. I was very appreciating of the final comprehension test quitting early to avoid undue stress since we did not even get thru half the story. I think this is a great resource for parents.

It's good but it didn't give her enough time to read the story question. She wasn't stressed out during reading, just slow. [DYNAREAD Response: The test is carefully designed to terminate exercises prematurely to avoid student stress. When current or earlier result data unambiguously indicate that a student's fluency and accuracy is too problematic for the current test stage, the test phase is stopped. The last thing we want is to add unnecessary stress and anxiety to the child. It is beautiful to hear your child was not stressed out, but the test levels were no longer relevant to her reading skills. Most other children would experience stress at that point.]

What is Dyslexia

Watch a 10 min video explaining very clearly what Dyslexia is, and how it affects your child.

Definition of Dyslexia

Logo International Dyslexia Association.

quote-sign 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.
