Dyslexia testing – assessing the language sound problems of Perth children.
At Focused Education we understand the importance of assessing a Dyslexic’s ability to hear language sounds using our well researched Dyslexia test. Our speech pathologist team know that recognising friends by their voice is a critical developmental behaviour. Children and adolescents often pronounce words differently. Receptive language users or listeners usually apply their advanced knowledge of speech phonology to help them recognise voices.
Impaired phonological processing common in Dyslexics.
Impaired phonological processing common in Dyslexics is a key symptom of Dyslexia. This reduced language awareness is thought to be the catalyst for having reading difficulties. Spelling difficulties can result from phonological deficits. Dyslexia testing is an important first step in overcoming Dyslexia difficulties.
Award winning Focused Education’s Dyslexia research.
We tested Dyslexics ability to recognise voices. Our speech and language pathologist team compared this to a control group. We found children, teenagers and adults with Dyslexia demonstrated an impaired ability to recognise voices known to them as well as unknown voices. Dyslexia testing that includes specific phonological tests of this nature is important in seeking help for your Dyslexic child. Linguistic differences can be treated with support from Focused Education’s Dyslexia Support Services.
