I am a certified Dyslexia Consultant.
I can conduct a consultation with the parents, which includes collecting all report cards and all testing results that have been done with the student along with a parent interview. After I have reviewed each of these pieces of information, the parent(s) and I will meet in person to decide the next step.
Or I can conduct the consultation and a screening, which includes all of the above along with a 2-3 hour screening session with the student. After reviewing the paperwork, parent interview and screening results, a 12+/- page report will be written and a final parent meeting will take place. The parents will then need to decide if I will move forward in tutoring the student using a specific dyslexia reading and spelling program.
