Dyslexia Screening & Assessment

For students with disabilities in reading, early intervention is critical to future success. The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) suggests that all students be screened for the risk of dyslexia. It is, therefore, essential for educators to know the basic principles of universal screening and what to look for in a dyslexia screener.

Wf989853 Ida Criteria Vjs3
IDA Criteria for Universal Screening
  • Quick and targeted assessments of individual skills that show whether students are making adequate progress in reading achievement
  • Alternate equivalent forms that can be administered three to four times a year
  • Standardized directions for administration and scoring
  • Established reliability and validity standards

Dyslexia is what I have, but not who I am.

"I am dyslexic. In 5th grade, I was enrolled in System 44 and I stuck with it and moved onto READ 180 until the end of 8th grade. This class, along with my parents and tutors, helped me improve my Lexile score several hundred points and brought me from a 1st grade to a 9th-grade reading level."
