That said, I must say that school or district-based evaluators don't often test for dyslexia. They often do a straight comparison between potential (as measured by I.Q.) and achievement. If your son is truly doing well academically, you may have to get an outside evaluation that specifically tests for dyslexia and then bring those results to your local evaluation team. The International Dyslexia Association should be able to help you with a referral if you decide to go for a private evaluation. Good luck!
