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.
