Dyslexia checklist. Are you dyslexic?

This checklist was developed in conjunction with Professor Tim Miles OBE of Bangor University following empirical research by Dr Ross Cooper of LLU+, London South Bank University. This checklist does not attempt to record the talents, skills or potential linked with dyslexia.

The checklist is organised around some of the key difficulties

organisation and sequencing. A more formal assessment may confirm the
presence of dyslexia.
