Robbie uses the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, Third Edition (WIAT-III) to assess achievement in a number of academic areas, including the likelihood of dyslexia related difficulties. Obtaining a formal diagnosis of dyslexia is different to dyslexia screening and can sometimes be a lengthy and expensive thing to do. That's because it's necessary to seek a qualified educational psychologist with the knowledge and expertise to administer a range of tests and to interpret the results accurately. This is very important. If you are seeking a formal diagnosis of dyslexia for your child, I would advise you to seek out the help of a qualified educational psychologist. You can do this through the Australian Psychological Society Find a Psychologist portal.
