I'm looking for some guidance. My son is in year one and the school have said that he is showing many traits of dyslexia. He is in the middle of the class and so the school has said that they don't want to asses him yet. We were happy with this state of affairs for a little while but now we feel it’s time to take action before it becomes a real blocker for him achieving his potential. I was assessed at 7 and my wife at 16 and so we know firsthand the difference early assessment can make to a child’s learning. So my question is really is he too young to be assed and if not can we get it done outside of school if they keep saying that they want to wait?
