Are You Dyslexic? Why Wait and Wonder? Let the Dyslexia Screening Test App from Neurolearning show you how you think and learn, and get you started on the road to a successful future.

Our Dyslexia Screening Test quickly and accurately lets users ages 7 to 70 who have not previously received intensive dyslexia-appropriate reading instruction be screened for signs of the thinking and processing traits associated with dyslexia.

The initial app download gives users access to the following free content:
--The MIND-Strengths self-assessment surveys (for ages 7 and older), which allow users to discover their relative abilities in 4 key strengths areas associated with dyslexia
--5 short videos describing what dyslexia is and is not, common signs of dyslexia, and what our screener can do for users
--A brief pre-test to determine if you might be at risk for dyslexia
--Comments by previous users on their experience with our app

After viewing this information, users can also buy a screening test slot (or slots) as an in-app purchase for $29.99 per test.


The Neurolearning Dyslexia Screening Test App measures several key brain functions that underlie reading and spelling skills, and that work differently in individuals with dyslexia. It combines these measures with an assessment of current reading skills to determine the likelihood that the test user is experiencing challenges at school or work related to dyslexia. After the screening, users are provided with a detailed and individualized report of their results.

This report includes:
- A Total Dyslexia Score, which measures the overall likelihood that any problems they have with reading and spelling are related to dyslexia
- Six Dyslexia Subscale Scores, which measure the key brain processing functions that underlying dyslexia-related challenges
- Detailed and individualized recommendations outlining steps that can be taken to improve performance and limit challenges at school or work
- A detailed list of resources that can be used to implement the recommendations
- Recommendations on when further professional assessment is needed

Neurolearning’s mission is to bring quality dyslexia testing within everyone's reach. For 20 years Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide have tested countless individuals with learning differences from all over the world in their Neurolearning Clinic in Seattle, Washington. They’ve also promoted better assessment and understanding of different learners through their influential books (“The Mislabeled Child” (2006) and the internationally best-selling book, "The Dyslexic Advantage" (2011)), and by the formation of the non-profit organization Dyslexic Advantage in 2012. The Eides are also frequent invited lecturers at conferences and meetings around the world, have been visiting lecturers at leading schools of education including Stanford University and Hunter College.

In 2014 the Eides joined with pioneering technologist and entrepreneur Nils Lahr to found Neurolearning SPC, and to bring quality testing for learning differences within everyone’s reach.

Extremely impressed with this tool

As a professional dyslexia tutor, I appreciate having a comprehensive report that gives me a solid idea of where my students are struggling. Sometimes I work with a child who has had a professional assessment completed by an educational psychologist, but oftentimes parents come to me with vague concerns and no report. In these cases Dr. Eide’s screening test is an exceptionally useful tool. I especially love the visual web that shows where any weaknesses exist. While I know the tool was primarily developed for students who have not been formally evaluated, I have had some of my students who have had formal evaluations take it as well. I am so impressed with how the report isolates weaknesses and scores them. And the support suggestions are so nicely organized and easy for parents to understand. Every single parent who has seen their child’s screening result has been impressed. It gives them clarity as to why their child is struggling and is something they can bring to the IEP table. It is also easier for them to understand than the psychologist’s report. Further, It helps them understand why I use certain procedures or resources with their student.

In short, I highly recommend this app. I believe it has made me a better tutor to my students and communicator to my parents.

Can’t recommend enough

Anyone with a struggling learner understands the daunting and uphill task of determining how to help them succeed. Additionally overwhelming is seeking the best path to, or not to, seek a diagnosis. This is where the app comes in…

We received instant feedback with a breakdown of possible areas of weakness and a prompt email from Dr. Eide reviewing our child’s results. The report was comprehensive with options for remediation for each of the areas and videos with further explanation. Dr. Eide was even willing to review the plan that I outlined and offer further suggestions. I now feel confident in taking steps to strengthen and assist my child where he struggles.

The app itself was easy to navigate for my child and relatively enjoyable. The fox that interacts is positive and encouraging (which was not our experience with state testing)! The tasks were broken into nine sections, with the option of taking breaks as needed. Because of the variety and pleasantness, my child felt ease in completing the test in one setting. If you’re on the fence with purchasing the app, you can’t go wrong with this painless option for assessing your student. Worth it X 1000!

Amazing tool

As a homeschooling parent, I have found this app test to be invaluable. Neither my husband nor I have any struggles with dyslexia, so when two of our three kids started showing difficulties in learning to read and spell, we knew we had to dig in and figure out what to do. We quickly found that getting a formal diagnosis of dyslexia can be very difficult and costly, so we began to explore other options. After much research, we found Neurolearning. Neurolearning gave us the data we needed to direct the education of our dyslexic children. The test was easy to take (our kids were 7 and 8 when they took it) and the kids enjoyed it because it felt like they were playing a game. The report we received afterward was filled with helpful information and resources. We especially appreciated the personal emails from Dr. Eide after taking the test - this extra touch was hugely helpful, especially for one of our kids who we consider to be a “stealth dyslexic”. Highly recommend.
