Warning Signs: Preschool and Kindergarten

  • Delayed speech
  • Baby talk that continues past the usual time
  • Mispronunciations of words that involve leaving off beginning sounds (such as pisgetti for spaghetti or lephant for elephant) or inverting sounds within a word (aminal for animal)
  • Insensitivity to rhyme

If your child exhibits 2 or more of these symptoms, and there is a family history of struggling with reading, writing, and spelling, please contact DTIS for more information.

Although dyslexia is lifelong, children frequently and successfully respond to appropriate interventions and accommodations.
