Dyslexia Screening Assessment

This free and confidential screening assessment will give a profile of learning strengths and weaknesses, including a measure of severity of symptoms.
Your answers are confidential. You do not need to provide any personal information to complete this assessment.
You can answer the questions for yourself, or you can use this evaluation as a way of learning more about the learning profile of a member of your family or a student you are working with.
The survey has 5 pages with 41 questions in all. For best results, you should try to answer as many questions as possible, but you can skip or omit any questions which do not apply.
Your results will be printed on screen as soon as you finish answering the questions. You will have an opportunity to print out your results at the end of the assessment.
