Preschool and primary school children aged 4 or above suspected of having dyslexia
Why do we need to conduct kindergarten & primary screening service?
It is a long time to wait for a dyslexia assessment at the government or school, the screening service provided by Pathways will help parents to understand their children’s literacy problems during the waiting period and provide early support.
After completing the screening test, why do we still need to undergo a comprehensive assessment?
Screening test results reflect the dyslexia tendency of schoolchildren, not the same as diagnosis. Parents who apply to the schools for learning support and services, proof of dyslexia diagnosis must still be submitted. Parents may consider discussing with teachers and social workers for receiving a comprehensive assessment at school, they can also let their child to receive assessment in private service agency. Our Clinical or Educational Psychology Support Service provide assessment and can be arranged within one month.
