This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of at-risk dyslexia and its risk factors in Thai preschoolers. Our results found a relatively high prevalence of at-risk preschoolers (22.14%). Family socioeconomic status, family history of learning difficulties, and the child's language development were risk factors for this condition.
