Hi,  my sons teacher has asked me to have him tested for dyslexia.  Does anyone know of an English speaking orthophoniste who could test my son as our doctor doesn't know of any that can test him? thanks.

Thank you Silwilhith, I have only just become aware of your reply.  I think some of my notifications must have been going into spam.


SwissUser I used the Orthonophist that English Accountant used for two of mine and found her very good.  I will try and send you her details.

We are leaving in Grenoble and we are trying to have our daughter (5 1/2 years old, bilingual franch/english) evaluated in English to try to get her into a bilingual school here in Grenoble.

Can you give the name, adress and phone number of those speech therapist in Lyon (by PM/email) ? That would be very nice from you.

Just stumbled on this topic and couldn't resist replying. We discovered our bilingual son was severly dyslexic when we moved from France to the UK (he was 6 at the time). I was very interested in the work of the European Dyslexia Association and went to several conferences. I don't know what they are doing now but they were very helpful at the time. 


My son is now 22 and about to embark on a career in IT. With support and LOADS of confidence building particularly in things he was good at (rather than concentrating on what he was bad at) he did well at school and actually sees his dyslexia as something that has given him strength. I remember it was a worrying time when he didn't learn to read like the other kids, so if anyone would like to chat then I am happy to do so. Back then I ran a local dyslexia support group affiliated with the British Dyslexia Association.

Looks like I was cut off in mid sentence the other day for some reason? Oh well, if anyone wants to chat dyslexia just PM me.
