South Bedfordshire Dyslexia Association
Who we are:
We are a small group of dedicated parents and teachers, many of us with specialist dyslexia training, who offer practical help and guidance to children and adults. We are an independent registered charity, run by volunteers and entirely self funded.
Dyslexia Screening Tests
Screening tests are designed to give an indication of possible dyslexic difficulties. They are not a diagnosis and are not 100% accurate.
There are many different types of screening tests; in an education setting some are delivered by computer, others need to be administered by a teacher/SENCo. Some just give an estimate as to whether the child/person is likely to have dyslexic difficulties. A few offer a more detailed profile of strengths and weaknesses which help inform an appropriate teaching strategy.
Where any screening test indicates a moderate or high probability of dyslexic difficulties, the best course of action is to follow up with a full diagnostic assessment. This would determine the precise nature of dyslexic and related difficulties.
