Dyslexia Nigeria offers screening texts as the first stage in identifying if a person may have dyslexia. Our universal screening targets all children in Year 1, when they are aged 5 or 6 years and are beginning to read.
Through universal screening and early detection at this stage, Dyslexia Nigeria helps schools identify at-risk pupils before they fall into reading failure. We also recommend evidence-based interventions to guide teachers in supporting identified at-risk pupils.
Please note that this screening service is not diagnostic. Rather, it gives an estimate of underlying ability, measures attainment in reading, spelling, and the cognitive skills needed for learning, such as memory, processing speed and phonological processing skills.
