Determine whether a young child is experiencing difficulty in areas known to be affected in dyslexia
The Dyslexia Early Screening Test— Second Edition (DEST–2) battery contains screening tests of attainment and ability. It evaluates a range of skills and profiles strengths and weaknesses of the child. The findings will assist in developing the appropriate treatment plan.
- Includes an At Risk Score
- Offers a computerized scoring program
- Contains UK normative information
The DEST–2 consists of 12 subtests:
- Rapid naming
- Bead threading
- Phonological discrimination
- Postural stability
- Forward digit span
- Digit naming
- Letter naming
- Sound order
- Shape copying
- Corsi frog
I cannot ‘make a report’ or ‘save results’.
The program will only generate a report and graph if ALL subtest scores are entered. Where you have chosen not to administer a subtest, i.e. Postural Stability, enter the average score for the child’s age as given in the manual. This score will not affect the existing data.
Includes examiner’s manual, envelope 1 (containing subtest cards and sample permission letter), envelope 2 (containing score keys), forward digit span CD, sound order CD, corsi frog, beads, cord, blindfold, balance tester, scoring software with manual and 50 score sheets in a bag.
