Welcome to the Integrated Dyslexia Screening Adult Assessment

○ The Assessment designed for adults who suspect they may have dyslexia or a related learning disability. This assessment takes approximately 15-25 minutes to complete and involves a series of tasks that assess your ability to read and remember both real and nonsense words, as well as pictures.

○ Dyslexia is a learning disability that affects a person's ability to read, write, and spell. It is estimated that about 15-20% of the population may have dyslexia to some degree, and it can cause difficulties in academic, social, and occupational settings.

○ The purpose of this assessment is to provide you with a better understanding of your own reading abilities, as well as to identify any potential areas of difficulty that may be related to dyslexia. The assessment is not intended to provide a definitive diagnosis of dyslexia or any other learning disability, but rather to offer a starting point for further evaluation and support.

○ Please answer each question to the best of your ability and take your time to read and pronounce each word and identify each picture accurately. There are no right or wrong answers, and your results will be kept confidential. Good luck!
