As there is no specific study or test to diagnose dyslexia, the doctor will analyze your child’s medical history, asking you about their school performance, family lifestyle, habits, and activities. In addition, he or she will perform auditory, visual, and neurological studies to rule out any underlying cause of dyslexia.
If considered necessary, he or she will apply a psychological exam, as well as reading tests and other didactic abilities.
As for the possible treatment, since it is an incurable condition, the aim is to adopt therapies that help your child lead a normal life, minimizing the effects of the disease, such as knowing learning techniques and adopting special personalized educational programs. The earlier dyslexia is diagnosed and treated, the less its effects on a child’s development.
You can help your child overcome this learning problem as best as possible by encouraging reading, reading to him or her every day, taking an interest in all school subjects, and establishing joint strategies with his or her teachers so that your child has a successful academic performance.
