Dyslexia Early Screening Test-Second Edition (DEST-2)
Profile strengths and weaknesses often associated with dyslexia
The Dyslexia Early Screening Test - Second Edition (DEST-2) battery contains screening tests of attainment and ability. These determine whether a young child is experiencing difficulty in areas known to be affected in dyslexia. An 'at risk' score for dyslexia determines whether further in-depth testing should be undertaken. A profile of skills provides valuable information that can be used to guide in-school support.
The DEST-2 consists of 12 subtests:
- Rapid naming
- Bead threading
- Phonological discrimination
- Postural stability
- Forwards digit span
- Digit naming
- Letter naming
- Sound order
- Shape copying
- Corsi frog
- Vocabulary (group/individual).
The DEST-2 replaces the bestselling Dyslexia Early Screening Test (DEST) and includes two additional subtests, clinical research data, a new 'at risk' category and scoring software.
