The Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen™, for the first time enables schools nationwide and internationally to quickly and reliably screen all kindergarten and first grade students for dyslexia, allowing early support and intervention. The evidence-based assessment, developed by Dr. Sally Shaywitz, is delivered in less than five minutes per student, making it simple for schools to implement and use in the evaluation of early readers. The questions on the assessment, which are based on a longitudinal study conducted by the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity, are considered likely predictors of dyslexia in children several years later. The Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen™ is extremely economical at 99 cents per student and is now available through Pearson.
