Literacy Screening

Literacy screening


Screening tests are designed to give an indication of possible dyslexic difficulties. They are not a diagnosis.


There are many different types of screening tests; in an education setting some are delivered by computer, others need to be administered by a teacher/SENCo. Some just give an estimate as to whether the child/person is likely to have dyslexic difficulties.


We can offer a more detailed profile of strengths and weaknesses, which help inform an appropriate teaching strategy.


Where any screening indicates a moderate or high probability of dyslexic difficulties, the best course of action is to follow up with a full diagnostic assessment. This would determine the precise nature of dyslexic and related difficulties.


Medway can offer Literacy screens to schools and families for £250.

Please note that if a full diagnostic assessment is required within 6 months of the Literacy Screen, this can be undertaken for an additional £100, as most of the analysis is current and can be used within the full diagnostic. 


Please contact the school directly to discuss further options.
