New toolkit makes dyslexia diagnosis easy

Dyslexia is a disorder in which children lack the required skills to read and spell and understand the written word.

A team of Indian researchers have developed diagnostic toolkits in local Indian languages like Hindi, Marathi and Kannada.

The toolkits have two set of tests – one is a screening test used by a class teacher to identify a child with dyslexia. Another is a test used by psychologists to identify dyslexia in children speaking in Hindi, Marathi, Kannada and English.

The idea is to detect dyslexia early and provide the required support.
