Provide a profile of strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide the development of in-school support for the student.
The revised Dyslexia Screening Test now covers primary and secondary school-aged children in two seperate assessments. The division of the DST into two tests, DST – Junior (DST-J) and DST – Secondary (DST-S), include extra subtests which are particularly relevant to the age group.
The DST-S provides a profile of strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide the development of in-school support for the child.
The DST-S is designed to identify those children who are still experiencing difficulties at secondary school and provides data which can be used in support of requesting extra time concessions in exams.
The DST-S replaces the best-selling DST and reflects changes in theory and practice since this initial publication with additional subtests, validation studies and case histories and scoring software.
The DST-S cosists of the following subtests:
- Rapid Naming
- Bead Threading
- One Minute Reading
- Postural Stability
- Phonemic Segmentation
- Two Minute Spelling
- Backwards Digit Span
- Nonsense Passage Reading
- One Minute Reading
- Verbal Fluency
- Semantic Fluency
- Spoonerisms NEW
- Non-verbal Reasoning NEW
Sample report – Secondary (pdf)
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 10 subtest cards and sample permission letter), envelope 2 (containing score keys), balance tester, blindfold, beads, cord, CD, scoring software and 50 score sheets in a bag.
