Price
$82.50

This screener is normed for grades 2 through 8. With prevalence of dyslexia ranging from 10% to 20% in elementary and middle schools, it is imperative to detect it and make appropriate referrals for further testing and diagnostic evaluation of dyslexia. TDS screening has high sensitivity and specificity for detecting dyseidetic (visual) and dysphonetic (auditory) types of dyslexia. It is an important tool for professionals on the multidisciplinary team involved in helping individuals with reading problems. These may include teachers, resource educational specialists, school psychologists, speech-language specialists, pediatricians, optometrists, ophthalmologists, occupational therapists, school nurses, and other professionals. They particularly need a dyslexia screening procedure when parents present their children with the complaint that: “My child is having trouble reading.”
