Reading assessment in special school what would you recommend

    Hi I teach in a special school, and would like to have an accurate reading assessment suitable for our students who range from PMLD - MLD

    Ideally I would like something that is also diagnostic to enable us to ensure that students are taught in a style relevant for their needs.

    We currently use the WRAT which just gives a reading age, I feel this is not relevant for many of our students and offers no diagnostic capabilities, is there anything out there that others have found relevant and useful,

    I was considering looking at Bill Gillham Early Literacy Assessment but this does not offer standardised scores up to the ages of our students as we are secondary.

    Any suggestions would be most welcome.
