Using a webcam and internet connection, your Lexercise clinician will meet with you and your child to work through a series of reading and literacy tasks.
The entire evaluation takes about 90 minutes.
This 8-10 page report includes evaluation results, a diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
The report can be used at school for accommodations like extra time on school tests.
Your Lexercise clinician will discuss results and answer your questions in a 30-minute follow-up consultation.
Recommendations will be made for what to do next and possible treatment options.
Our evaluation is personalized, convenient and costs less than other evaluations at $645 for children and adults.
Lexercise uses a testing protocol based on research funded by the National Institutes of Health. This language-processing evaluation focuses on the neuro-linguistic skills that are known to be the underpinning of skilled reading and writing. Our evaluations are carried out by clinical educators whose training is consistent with the International Dyslexia Association’s Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading. The professionals are qualified to make an official diagnosis when indicated. If the Lexercise evaluation indicates a disability diagnosis, it will qualify your child under the federal law, The Americans with Disabilities Act, and can be used at any school to request a 504 Plan for academic accommodations*.
*Every school has its own procedures for granting accommodations. Therefore, it’s advisable to take the Lexercise sample report found on the Lexercise evaluation page to your school to ensure it fits their individual procedures.
The free screener is a fast, preliminary tool to identify if there may be a heightened risk of dyslexia for a child, but it does not produce a definitive diagnosis. On the other hand, the Full Evaluation can give a formal diagnosis. The findings are detailed in a 6-8 page report. The Full Evaluation is conducted by a professional clinician with deep experience working with individuals who have language processing differences.

Many parents expect public schools to provide their struggling readers and writers with timely evaluation and therapy, and these parents often delay getting their kids the help they need until the school acts. Unfortunately, this “wait and hope” approach is rarely effective and has a costly impact on children:
Of course, the evaluation therapists at Lexercise are qualified to officially diagnose reading problems including dyslexia.
We follow the guidelines of the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) on the diagnosis of dyslexia and disability determination. The NCLD has provided the following guidance about who may diagnose dyslexia:
“Professionals with expertise in several fields are best qualified to make a diagnosis of dyslexia. The testing may be done by a single individual or by a team of specialists. A knowledge and background in psychology, reading, language and education is necessary. The tester must have a thorough working knowledge of how individuals learn to read and why some people have trouble learning to read. They must also understand how to administer and interpret evaluation data and how to plan appropriate reading interventions.”
We follow the following standards of the International Dyslexia Association:
