Dyslexia Foundation Testing Program

The Dyslexia Foundation of Memphis provides a screening test for dyslexia. This is actually a battery of tests to determine if a student’s academic difficulties stem from dyslexia.
This is not a full-scale psychological evaluation. However, it is detailed enough to identify a student’s proficiency in dealing with language, both oral and written. The battery includes tests in the areas of:

  • Short term memory
  • Speech irregularities
  • Accuracy and fluency of reading
  • Reading comprehension
  • Visual perception and processing
  • Auditory perception and processing
  • Eye / hand co-ordination

The cost of the evaluation is $225.00 which includes:

  • Testing by a trained examiner
  • Evaluation
  • Appointment with a licensed psychologist
  • Interpretation of test results

If a student has been tested within the previous two years, there is only a $100.00 referral fee to determine if the child is eligible for our programs. A copy of the previous evaluation, which should be no more than two years old, should be submitted with the fee. This fee covers:

  • Review by a licensed psychologist
  • Referral to program for eligible students
