How to identify dyslexia
In the past, when people scored a lower IQ score than expected, especially in their reading ability, they would be identified as dyslexic. At that time, this approach were very useful for researchers since IQ score was expected to identify specific problems and difficulties which might be related to distinct causal factors.

Nowadays, many experts have a doubt toward IQ score as a useful indicator of reading potential. In majority of cases, people with severe difficulties in learning to write, read and spell will now be considered as dyslexic, notwithstanding of IQ.

Early screening and identification
In our article titled Interventions for Dyscalculia on Primary School, we had explained about three levels of support to help children with learning difficulties; they are Wave 1, Wave 2 and Wave 3. A similar problem which is meant to identify the signs of dyslexia at school entry would speed up the dyslexia treatment.

Intervention programs for dyslexia in English-speaking countries will be highly needed because of the marked prevalence.

Teacher awareness
Teachers are also an important factor in identifying dyslexia. Nevertheless, they frequently lack time and appropriate training to follow up on the children who have signs of dyslexia.

Severe cases
Even though training of phonological awareness can be very effective to help people with mild to moderate dyslexia, this training is not always effective to deal with severe dyslexia cases. Most of severe dyslexia tends to persist despite such interventions. In this kind of situation, people tend to gain benefit from additional functional support, for example voice recognition software or training in the use of word processing.
