Findings from Dyslexia screening research project

Dyslexia, dyspraxia and visual stress: how do we identify these in students?

aim of project
Aim of project
  • To compare 2 different dyslexia screening methods
  • Tutor screening :
    • a battery of tests and interview delivered by a tutor 1 - 1
  • Computer screening: computerised assessment – LADS
    • could be delivered to up to 20 students at a time.
participants
Participants
  • 100 students recruited:
  • 99 double screened
  • 30 screened positive on both screenings
  • 41 students screened positive on one screening method
  • 71 students referred for assessment
screening project assessment
Screening project: Assessment
  • Some students previously assessed
  • Some students refused assessment
  • 56 assessments carried out + 4 previous ones used in analysis
  • Of the 60 assessed, 75% (45/60) were found to have a specific difficulty.
  • Much higher incidence than we expected
raising awareness of spld
Raising awareness of SpLD
  • research into pupils failing SATS levels (PATOSS Conference 2008) – 55% identified as at risk of dyslexia – so there may be an underlying cause as to why a particular student is failing.
results of assessments
Results of assessments
  • 39 dyslexic
  • 18 dyspraxic
  • 15 visual stress

Comorbidity:

13 dyslexia + visual stress

13 dyslexia + dyspraxia

9 dyspraxia + visual stress
