    Dyslexia is a big umbrella term for inability to read or difficulty in reading. There are many possible problems to look at. I would begin by listening to the child read and start taking notes. Can we sound out words? know vowel sounds? Do we recognize common sight words? When writing are we reversing many letters? (some are not a prob. for a 1st gr.) Does the student pick up on context clues, use pictures to tell the story? Is it a comprehension problem? I love to work with alphabet tiles and have the kids sound out words. I guess you are the scientist and you want to find out where the holes are in the learning.I might be able to help you with strategies if I knew a little more info. Good luck.
