Product Details

The revised Dyslexia Screening Test now covers primary and secondary school-aged children in two separate assessments.


  • The DST-S provides a profile of strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide the development of in-school support for the child
  • The DST-S is designed to identify those children who are still experiencing difficulties at secondary school and provides data which can be used in support of requesting extra time concessions in exams


  • The division of the DST into two tests, DST - Junior and DST - Secondary (DST-S), include extra subtests which are particularly relevant to the age group.
  • The DST-S replaces the best-selling DST and reflects changes in theory and practice since this initial publication with additional subtests, validation studies and case histories and scoring software.
  • Consists of the following subtests:
    • Rapid Naming
    • Bead Threading
    • One Minute Reading
    • Postural Stability
    • Phonemic Segmentation
    • Two Minute Spelling
    • Backwards Digit Span
    • Nonsense Passage Reading
    • One Minute Reading
    • Verbal Fluency
    • Semantic Fluency
    • Spoonerisms
    • Non-verbal Reasoning
