My grandson is seven years old and having problems with reading, he talks a lot and has a d extensive vocabulary but when it comes to reading he is very insecure about it. He does not like to try to read in front of the other kids at school for fear they my make fun of him. He is in first grade. My daughter just enroll him in some kind of private tutoring service so will see how it goes, thank you for any advises yo can give me.

You can also do a parent requested evaluation to be done by the Special Ed Dept of your local pubic school. Even if the child goes to a private school or is home schooled, the public school will provide the evaluation at no cost. Then if you have a diagnosis you know what steps to take next. Maybe he is just nervous, and if that is the case you can get some ideas on how to help him with that issue.

If it is a real teaching/tutoring service, that is fantastic. They actually may be able to spot dyslexia like the other ladies are saying, and set him on the right course.

Evaluating for dyslexia is a great idea. My husband is dyslexic and functions VERY well in the computer software industry which requires a lot of reading so don't get discouraged with this if it ends up being the diagnosis.
