Early dyslexia screening is key for student success

With 1 in 5 people displaying symptoms of dyslexia, a language-based reading disorder, there is a critical need for early screening and intervention. Studies have shown that early detection of dyslexia can greatly improve a student’s success, but many schools don’t have a screening protocol in place. The partnership of aimsweb™Plus and Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen™ puts the power of reliable and efficient dyslexia screening directly into the hands of the educators, enabling them to not only identify an issue early on, but giving them the tools to enhance their students’ success!

Introducing aimswebPlus and Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen

Many states now require dyslexia screening for young students. Schools need quick, valid, reliable, and cost-effective tools to find students who may be at risk for dyslexia. Early intervention is crucial for success in later grades.

aimswebPlus and the Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen are both included on the list of suggested universal screening tools by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA).
