Dyslexia Screener / Assessment

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by beckidaniel, Apr 17, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    Just a quick question to hopefully give me a starting point! I am in the process of looking for a new dyslexia screener &/or assessment and was wondering which of the schemes available you all use? Any info or feedback on these would be extremely gratefully recieved - it seems such a large amount of money to shell out on something I am not sure about!!

    Thanks!!

  3. Hi,
    We use a computer screener called LASS rapid by Lucid which looks at three key areas- phonological awareness, auditory sequential memory and visual discrimination/phonic skills depending on the age of a child. We screen all of our Yr 1 pupils and have found in really useful for early intervention.

    Hope that helps.

     
  4. May I ask what sort of "intervention" you use?
