Getting an Assessment in Manitoba:
Parents may decide they do not want to wait for their school division to provide a diagnosis for their child's reading disability. There are 37 psychologist firms in Manitoba who have specialists who diagnose learning disabilities: http://members.mps.ca/ When you contact these firms, ask if they are specifically able to diagnose dyslexia, as some firms do and some do not.
