Talk to doctor: Your child's pediatrician should be able to give you advice on who in your area is able to test for dyslexia and other developmental problems.

If a public school: finds a child's reading ability to be below average & academic progress slow, they institute 3-tiered Response To Intervention. Then, if progress is still inadequate, they evaluate for eligibility for Special Education. Insurance companies do not cover private assessment or therapy for dyslexia by Speech/Language Therapists, child (neuro)psychologists or reading programs like LindaMood-Bell.
