Why Get a Dyslexia Test Australia

It is estimated that over 10% of Australians have some form of dyslexia. 


Do you think that you or your child might have some form of dyslexia? If so, you are not alone. This learning disorder has had a detrimental impact on thousands of people living in Australia. So much so that they have booked a dyslexia test in Australia – and you could be next in line. In choosing to do so, you can remedy dozens of reasons for concern. For example, you might have booked a dyslexia test as you are troubled over your child’s progress in school. If this is the case then a cognitive assessment can help identify a range of learning problems – including dyslexia. Better still, it can provide you with a detailed analysis of your child’s learning strengths and weaknesses. Fortunately, thanks to the Australian government, dyslexia cannot legally be discriminated against. The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) makes it,

“. . . unlawful to discriminate against a person, in many areas of public life, including employment, education, getting or using services, renting or buying a house or unit, and accessing public places, because of their disability.”

However, that’s not to say that it doesn’t regularly occur in everyday life. So, if your child is dyslexic – proven or pending – you will likely find yourself acting as their advocate in getting the right support in school. A dyslexia test goes a long way in providing evidence to educators who might otherwise turn a blind eye. This way, you are more likely to be able to provide your little one with the equal opportunities they deserve.

How We Carry Out a Dyslexia Test in Australia

Our educational psychologists employ a cognitive assessment.


When it comes to carrying out a dyslexia test in Australia, only select individuals should be trusted with the responsibility. Dyslexia tests are probably one of the most sought-after in Australia, so it’s crucial you use a registered source. One of these is an educational psychologist, who is capable of performing a formal assessment. As with any assessment, it’s vital that the most accurate diagnosis is carried out to ascertain why the individual is struggling. Reading difficulties can be symptomatic of a whole host of other disorders. These can include speech and language impairment, attention deficit and more. A maths disorder is also a recognised learning disorder that can impact reading and handwriting. However, it can be missed within a standalone dyslexia test. Therefore, our educational psychologists employ a cognitive assessment. This way, we can find out what factors contribute to our patient’s learning difficulties. All so we can guide them to the most appropriate intervention and support.
