cajunrose Posted January 6, 2011 Share Posted January 6, 2011 They started the dyslexic testing at VT today. It was a mixed bag how I think it went... First off, the tester had a very thick cajun accent. She asked my dd to spell "ax". Raelee wrote down ax. She then told her she would use it in a sentence: "I will ax you a question." :lol: I had to clarify for my dd what word she meant. Anyway, she had her read through a list of words. My dd read the list up to the third grade level (she's 7 and in second and far from reading 3rd grade material). It's when it's in context that she starts guessing the words rather than reading them. I guess that could be the Nystagmus that does that. I don't know. I explained to the doc that she has a lot of problems with words in context. We shall see what they say. She also had a TON of problems if given a list of letters or numbers and circling the backwards ones. She just couldn't distinguish which ones were backwards. I don't know what they will say...I'm sure I'll hear more next week. We got sent home with some color discrimination homework for us to do.
