    Choosing a tester for dyslexia

    Yes that is my fear because she is reading above grade level, and third grade has such a wide range of normal, she’s not going to present easily as dyslexic. It’s in her spelling and writing that it’s most obvious to me. I gave her that online Z screener and she got a 61% on the first part which they flagged, and did fine on the second part (read words like a 5th grader, whatever that means to them) If there is just a screener given there’s a good chance she'll sail past it even though she clearly has an issue.

    Anyone feel like talking about stealth dyslexia?

    This looks really great. Thank you for posting about it

    I just started The Dyslexic Advantage, and it talks a lot about “spiky” kids and the skills they trade for others because of dyslexia. It’s very interesting. i appreciate all of the responses. Terabith, I can see my DD testing that way as well. Her eval is next month.

    So I have been using AAS with her, but I don’t know that anything is sticking. It claims to be good for dyslexics so I wonder if I’m using it incorrectly, or if it’s just not working for us. Did anyone else try AAS with their dyslexic child? I’m going to look into the other spelling programs mentioned Eta: she seems to understand while we are going through the lesson, and she spells the words correctly when I quiz her, but the following week when we’ve moved on, it seems like it all fell out of her head!

    Thank you for this, I appreciate the insight! That was my gut reaction. We canceled with the NP and are going with the SLP + Ed psych. 🙂

    Well I just got a response back that I’m not sure I feel confident about... She said she uses CTOPP-2 only if “she thinks she needs to” after doing some other testing. She doesn’t use RAN/RAS.

    I need someone who can tease out stealth dyslexia and probably not so stealth dysgraphia. I’m spending over $2,000 either way, so it’s not like one is way cheaper.

    Choosing a tester for dyslexia

    Unfortunately there are no Barton testers local to us. Our workup is the same as yours, but she’s not considered a “dyslexia specialist.” The SLP + Ed Psych are both members of the IDA. Now I’m second guessing our choice...

    In our case the SLP works with an Ed psych and that team costs more than the NP. The NP assured us she would do the phonological testing required to diagnose. (We’ve asked her 100 questions at this point!)

    that’s what I was hoping you’d say! Thank you!

    Me too! I’m going to see if I can find some more resources
  12. Is an SLP + Psychologist preferable to a neuropsychologist or vice versa? We have it narrowed down to these two options, and the SLP + Psych is $600 more than the neuro. We will gladly pay the money if it's important to have the SLP involved. SLP + Psych does 2 days of testing, (SLP one day, the psych is the second day.) neuro does it all herself over 3 days. Both do the various language tests along with IQ and achievement. Both will screen for attention issues as well. Any insight? Does it even matter? I'm a professional over-thinker.

    I really enjoyed The Whole Brained Child. (I think it’s the same Dan seigel!)

    Which sports /social activities?

    My oldest does swimming, rock climbing and creative writing group on and off. He plays piano and produces music on the computer, but that's a solitary endeavor so far. My twins just started PS so their activities are on hiatus, but DD does soccer, ice skating and girl scouts. DS just does soccer. (He's an extreme introvert and if I'm being quite honest is very attached to his mother. 😂)
