The individual diagnostic assessment provides a profile of strengths and weaknesses that can be translated directly into an individual teaching plan, enabling specialist teachers to devise and implement a relevant and sensitive, multi-sensory intervention programme.
Dyslexia Guidance is an invaluable resource; ideal for use after the Dyslexia Screener Digital and Dyslexia Portfolio in providing teachers and SENCOs with practical advice on supporting dyslexic pupils, from pre-school through to university level.
If the assessment is not carried out by a recognised professional it is rubbish. Every question on this test was, obviously, related to a symptom of dyslexia.
Use your answers as a guide to help you focus on the areas you need to improve on.
Before considering an assessment, you may want to look at doing a dyslexia checklist and/or screener, if you haven’t already.
, an in-depth, individual assessment that provides a comprehensive overview of a pupil’s difficulties to inform intervention.
Measures of language skills, phonological awareness, memory, and rapid naming are more suggestive of being at-risk for dyslexia among young children than are measures of word reading, decoding, and spelling.
Therefore, measures of phonological awareness, memory, and rapid naming are typically included in Kindergarten and beginning first grade screening tests that can identify children who need targeted intervention to improve these critical skills so these children can meet grade- level benchmarks.
The 30 minute test is an ideal tool for screening an entire year group, or for screening those pupils showing some signs of difficulty.
It can play an important part in helping both specialist and non-specialist teachers distinguish between those individuals who are having general difficulties in literacy and those whose difficulties are associated with dyslexia.
