Hiya Stella,

Pauly has dyslexia hope this helps

The Common Signs of Dyslexia in Children
If a child has several of these indications, further investigation should be made. The child may be dyslexic, or there may be other reasons. This is not a checklist.
1. Persisting factors.
There are many persisting factors in dyslexia, which can appear from an early age. They will still be noticeable when the dyslexic child leaves school.
These include:

  • Obvious 'good' and 'bad' days, for no apparent reason,
  • Confusion between directional words, e.g. up/down, in/out,
  • Difficulty with sequence, e.g. coloured bead sequence, later with days of the week or numbers,

A family history of dyslexia/reading difficulties.
2. Pre-school.

  • Has persistent jumbled phrases, e.g. 'cobbler's club' for 'toddler's club'
  • Use of substitute words e.g. 'lampshade' for 'lamppost'.
  • Inability to remember the label for known objects, e.g. 'table, chair'.
  • Difficulty learning nursery rhymes and rhyming words, e.g. 'cat, mat, sat'.
  • Later than expected speech development.

Pre-School Non-language indicators.

  • May have walked early but did not crawl - was a 'bottom shuffler' or 'tummy wriggler'.
  • Persistent difficulties in getting dressed efficiently and putting shoes on the correct feet.
  • Enjoys being read to but shows no interest in letters or words.
  • Is often accused of not listening or paying attention.
  • Excessive tripping, bumping into things and falling over.
  • Difficulty with catching, kicking or throwing a ball; with hopping and/or skipping.
  • Difficulty with clapping a simple rhythm.

3. Primary school age.

  • Has particular difficulty with reading and spelling.
  • Puts letters and figures the wrong way round.
  • Has difficulty remembering tables, alphabet, formulae etc.
  • Leaves letters out of words or puts them in the wrong order.
  • Still occasionally confuses 'b' and 'd' and words such as 'no/on'.
  • Still needs to use fingers or marks on paper to make simple calculations.
  • Poor concentration.
  • Has problems understanding what he/she has read.
  • Takes longer than average to do written work.
  • Problems processing language at speed.

Primary school age non-language indicators:

  • Has difficulty with tying shoe laces, tie, dressing.
  • Has difficulty telling left from right, order of days of the week, months of the year etc.
  • Surprises you because in other ways he/she is bright and alert.
  • Has a poor sense of direction and still confuses left and right.
  • Lacks confidence
