My husband and I have just come back from my daughters (age 5, year 1) parents evening where we've been told she's seeing the SENCO because the school is worried amongst other things, about her ability to count. The teacher is also unsure if she's actually listening/taking things in and there seems to be a variability in her overall intelligence –she's been tested on key words, one day she knew 75 words but when tested a few days later on the same words she only knew 35. Similar concerns were raised in her reception year but nothing was followed through. I really want to get my daughter assessed for Dyslexia but don't know if it's the right thing to do AND don't know really where to start. The school hasn't suggested Dyslexia, but from my own investigation and mothers intuition I feel an assessment for Dyslexia might be the way forward.
