Below is list of the some of the most commonly noticed characteristics of dyslexia. There is no single manifestation of dyslexia that is 'always'
seen. However, there are many commonalities amongst dyslexics listed below that may seem familiar. If more than 8 items on this list apply (or did apply when they were younger) a majority of the time, you probably want to look further into the possibility that dyslexia is impacting their academic performance or life in general!.
It is best to determine if dyslexia is having an impact on academic performance before it begins to negatively impact behavior and self-image.
Don't assume that because a student has been able to 'make it' through years of school, that dyslexia is not still an underlying issue holding them back or preventing him/her from realizing their true potential! Many dyslexics are highly intelligent and/or functional – intellect, intuition, and ability to get 'the gist of things' – these are all skills that can get a student well into their high school years and beyond. However, they may be far from reaching their true potential if their difference is not recognized!
