We are proud to offer our brand new Literacy Screener completely free of charge to all schools! We hope to help identify pupils struggling with literacy and ensure they get the support they need.
The IDL Literacy Screener is a simple effective online tool that can be used to highlight dyslexic type difficulties. The test takes around 30 minutes to complete and is perfect for screening pupils aged 8 and over. It can be used with groups or individuals where there may be a concern about their literacy progress.
The test focuses on the skills needed to understand written and spoken language:
- Auditory processing
- Visual processing
- Short term memory
- Speed of processing
- Organising and sequencing
A deficiency in one or more of these skill areas can be an early indicator of dyslexia and other learning difficulties enabling you to tailor further support for the pupil.
