Hello there.

I can understand your concern.
What do you want to diagnose/rule out by doing CT or MRI scan?
Take her to a pediatrician and a opthalmologist to get her eye sight checked out.
If any tests are required they will advise after examining her.
There is no need for you to go for tests by yourself.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.

Hello.... MRI of head is suggestive to rule out pathological cause... If it's normal you take her to psychiatrist... Complete examination and evaluate is required... Doctor will assess the exact problem with her reading.... Dyslexia is condition where child finds it difficult to read words..
