PreK, Kindergarten, First-Grade, and Second-Grade teachers can benefit from using this product as a helpful guide for detecting dyslexic characteristics among their students. Common characteristics are organized by age group/grade level for easy reference. If you have a student who displays the majority of characteristics on this list, then it would likely be helpful to implement Orton-Gillingham instructional strategies to support your classroom instruction with that child - particularly for literacy instruction.

NOTE: This is not an exclusive list of characteristics for dyslexia. It does include many common characteristics which teachers may readily observe within the classroom setting. This is not intended to be used as an evaluation or diagnostic tool; it is for observational purposes and should be used to better inform teacher practice.
