What Is Dyslexia and Can I Take A Dyslexia Test?
Updated: Sep 7
There are many definitions of dyslexia, but the Dyslexia Association of Ireland (DAI) provide a simple explanation: dyslexia is a learning difficulty that makes it difficult for some people to learn to read, write, or spell correctly.
People with dyslexia can experience many difficulties when trying to read, including: confusion or dizziness while reading; confusion of numbers and letters, as well as words and sequences; skipping over words and even lines of text; perceiving movement when there is none; and reading and rereading with poor comprehension.
It’s important to note, that not everyone in the dyslexic community experiences the same thing. That’s why the Dyslex.ie software is capable of web-page adaptation, that tailors the reading experience to each user. You can download the software for free and try it now on Chrome browsers!
You may ask, ‘Is there some sort of dyslexia test I can take to find out if I have it?’ In Ireland, the official advice is to contact the DAI and get assessed by an educational psychologist. You can find information on getting a dyslexia test here. The process is quite expensive, but it’s important to consider if you are seriously concerned.
