DYSLEXIA SCREENING TEST
Dyslexia Nigeria offers screening test as the first stage in identifying if a person may have Dyslexia. It is the minimum level of assessment completed before a student can start to receive specialist tuition. It is completed by a specialist teacher and involves assessment of verbal ability, attainment in reading, spelling and writing in order to identify patterns of strengths and weakness, learning differences and possibly learning styles. It can assist in planning suitable teaching and learning strategies and programmes of work.
A short report is produced detailing the findings and contains recommendations.
It must be noted that this level of assessment does not permit nor provide a formal definite diagnosis of dyslexia.
