The Neurolearning Dyslexia Screening App quickly and accurately lets users ages 7 to adult screen themselves for signs of the thinking and processing traits associated with dyslexia.
Individuals with dyslexia typically struggle with reading and/or spelling. These difficulties arise from differences in the ways their brains process certain kinds of information. The Neurolearning Dyslexia Screening App works by measuring several key brain functions underlying reading and spelling skills, which function differently in individuals with dyslexia. It combines these measures with an assessment of current reading skills to provide an assessment of the likelihood that the test user is experiencing challenges at school or work related to dyslexia.
The Neurolearning Dyslexia Screening App provides users with a detailed and individualized report of their results. This report includes:
--an explanation of the overall likelihood that any problems they are experiencing with reading and spelling are related to dyslexia
--recommendations on when further professional assessment is needed
--an explanation of the key processing areas that may be contributing to their dyslexia-related challenges
--a detailed set of individualized recommendations outlining steps that can be taken to improve performance and limit challenges at school or work
--a detailed list of resources that can be used to implement the recommendations
The assessment process used by the Neurolearning Dyslexia Screening App was developed by Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide, leading experts on dyslexia and dyslexia assessment, to resemble the process they personally have used to screen thousands of children for dyslexia. In addition to their extensive clinical experience, the Eides are frequent invited lecturers at conferences and meetings around the world, have been visiting lecturers at leading schools of education including Stanford University and Hunter College, and are the co-authors of the internationally best-selling book, "The Dyslexic Advantage". The Neurolearning Dyslexia Screening App's scoring system was developed and validated with over 800 dyslexia and nondyslexic volunteers using a process of expert risk assessment to develop a system of scoring metrices overseen by psychometrician Dr. Mark Moulton of Educational Data Systems, who specializes in the development of psychometric assessment.
Improvements in usability features with report access. Minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
I am so thrilled with this screening app! I believe it will revolutionize the ability to quickly and accurately give parents, tutors, and schools accurate feedback regarding dyslexia risk, in a cost-effective manner that is accessible to all. The report is amazing; organized, well presented, and it explains the test results in plain language. This screener not only gives results, it also provides a plan of action steps and resources. As an interventionist and dyslexia screener, using this app allows me to observe and focus on test taking behaviors without marking down answers or handling test materials. Furthermore, I can use the results to affirm or check my own findings.
Personal feelings on this app
Hi! I am a 67 years old.
I have known I was dyslexic for 40 years. I was never tested because it wasn’t needed. I had no intention of going back to school. Where I would need extra help.
So when I was made aware of the app for this test I jumped on it. I scored 88 which is high. Wow! It not only validated the fact I was dyslexic, that my struggles and frustration are not me making excuses for what I have seen as shortcomings.
The app is not only tests. It also has information to help you find resources, lots of them. Also talks about the things that make people with dyslexia special.
