Dyslexia can be a challenge for kids, not only with their reading, but also in their language. Furthermore, dyslexia may show up differently at different ages of child development.
For example, in pre-school it may show up as switching letters in words, such as saying beddy tear instead of teddy bear. In kindergarten through 2nd grade it may show up as confusing letters that look similar or that have similar sounds.
Understood.org has written a list of symptoms to help you identify if your child may be struggling with dyslexia and what to look for at different ages. This will allow you to discuss your findings with your child’s teachers and healthcare professionals.
