In designing the test, care has been taken to make the testing procedure as straightforward as possible, avoiding the use of IQ tests. As a result, DAST provides an excellent first step in deciding whether to request further testing, and to provide a profile of the strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide the intervention training strategies for the individual. DAST can also form the first step in deciding whether a more comprehensive dyslexic assessment is warranted. The DAST sees the culmination of several years of research and testing by Dr Angela Fawcett and Professor Rod Nicolson, authors of the established Dyslexia Screening Test (DST) and Dyslexia Early Screening Test (DEST), now widely used for screening younger aged candidates.
The DAST comprises a total of 11 subtests which emphasises fluency as well as accuracy:
Ages: 15-18 (Senior Secondary), Ages: 18+ (Adult)
Examiner's Manual, Pack of 50 Record Forms, Balance Tester, Blindfold, CD and envelope (containing Score Keys, Rapid Naming Card, One Minute Reading Cards, Nonsense Passage Cards, One Minute Writing Passage Cards) & canvass shoulder bag
