Today we have a short little video for you on how to diagnose dyslexia in adults. The video is coming from the eHow YouTube Channel and features Doctor George Northrup.
Dr. Northrup starts off discussing how you can diagnose dyslexia in children and then goes into what to look for in adults. Check it out and then stop make sure to read our comments below the video!
What did you take away from the video?
Here are some of our thoughts:
- Difficulty with word recognition
- Difficulty with sentence meaning
- Delayed speech
- Review childhood history
- Letter reversals like writing an “e” backwards
- Word substitutions, for example, “say” instead of “saw”
