Does anyone know if there are accommodations available for dyslexic children trying to get a driving learner's permit? My daughter has a friend who has failed three times because she struggles to read the test. We have read the manual to her at home so she knows the info, she just can't pass the written test. The part with road signs she does fine.
Are there any accommodations for a dyslexic teenager trying to obtaining a driving learner's permit?
Depends on where you live - but I did find this... http://school.familyeducation.com/learning-disabilities/teen-driving/41908.html
Reading Disability and Driver's Test
In my state, if a new driver passes the written portion of the test at a state certified driving school, they don't have to retake it at the DMV. This is how all the quirky kids we know are getting their permits. Even though it is the same test, its a much easier way to take it. You might check into this where you live.
My DD doesn't have reading issues so I don't know how they handle that, but they've done a great job teaching her to drive, and we weren't sure if she would be able to drive.
