The screening for dyslexia...
is a series of several oral and written exercises, some of which are standardized & normed, that enable the screener to determine if a client has dyslexia or not, how severe it is, what his or her various strengths and weaknesses are within the diagnosis, what remedial help is needed, and finally, what accommodations are needed
in school and elsewhere.
The full, written report for a dyslexia diagnosis...
is a 12 to 15 page concisely written and typed document that summarizes the
client's educational history, analyzes the results of the screening, and makes specific recommendations for remedial help & accommodations based on the findings, as they pertain to a diagnosis of dyslexia. The report also includes around 10 pages of raw testing result attachments, with commentary, for a total of up to around 25 pages.

The tutoring for dyslexics is an Orton-Gillingham method, the highly respected
Barton Reading and Spelling System, done one-to-one.
Individualized interaction is needed to progress the client as fast as possible. (I do not do group tutoring.) I am doing remedial tutoring to catch the client up in reading; it is serious business. It is highly specialized using multiple senses at the same time. Progress is incredible to watch. Slowly, reading becomes natural. Confidence is gained.
By the time I see clients, they typically need 36 months or
more of tutoring in order
to catch up.
If clients continue to read as a lifelong skill, reading becomes even faster after leaving HFR
and the results are permanent.
My clients become readers and can lead normal lives.
