Structured Literacy is a registered trademark of the

International Dyslexia Association.

DYSLEXIA SCREENERS

The Screeners are based on the most recent neurocognitive research on risk factors and deficits associated with dyslexia.

Risk Factors

  • Family History of Reading Difficulties

  • Early Language Delay

Deficits

Deficits identified will vary according to age/grade level/semester.

  • Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN)

  • Phonological and Phonemic Awareness

  • Verbal Working Memory

  • Letter Name/Letter Sound Knowledge

  • Decoding/Pseudoword Decoding

  • Encoding

  • Handwriting (Dysgraphia)

  • Oral Reading Fluency (accuracy, rate, prosody)

  • Comprehension/Retell

  • Dyslexia Related Reading Behaviors

Dyslexia Screener

Identify at risk students as early as the first week of Pre-K.

  • Use the Screeners to identify those at risk and to identify their unique deficit profile to inform instruction.

  • According to the most recent neurocognitive research on dyslexia, each student has a unique deficit profile.

  • Use the results and specific instructional recommendations for targeted instruction/intervention.

  • Screeners include alternate fluency passages for reuse as a progress monitoring tool.

  • The Screener results and recommendations can be used with the Fluency Builders program to provide supplemental Tier 1 instruction (PreK-2) to prevent reading failure or to provide intervention (PreK-12). Contact us to  find out how to optimize the PreK-2 window by  implementing the Fluency Builders program as a Tier 1 supplement.
