"Poor phonological awareness is the most common cause of poor reading.  Reading problems can be prevented if all students are trained in letter-sound skills and phonological awareness, starting in kindergarten. 
David Kilpatrick (2002).

This assessment tool enables teachers and leaders to determine exact teaching needs in literacy and is the first step to ensuring you do not leave reading to chance.

Administered on school entry and also when your students are presenting with literacy difficulties. This assessment will be exactly what you are looking for to make a bigger difference. 

Walk away with the assessment tool and a greater understanding also of where to start. We will also give you an insight into the iDeaL automated analysis and reporting system to make your life so much easier as a teacher, leader or intervention specialist. 


If you are a new LSC this is a MUST. You will be able to detect the possibility of dyslexia with this screener and the new knowledge you have in hand.
