Reading difficulties in children may be more common than you think. Studies show that 7% of school-aged children have difficulties with reading and spelling. That is almost 1 in 15! 
You may also have heard of the term Dyslexia – the difficulty learning to read. Educational psychologists provide a clinical diagnosis of Dyslexia. They assess areas of cognition, visual processing, and memory. While psychologists make the formal diagnoses for dyslexia, speech pathology can help! Speech pathology assessments investigate gaps and areas of breakdown that cause reading difficulties.
