The Detailed Assessment of Speed of Handwriting is ideal for providing evidence for Access Arrangements for Key Stage 2 (UK) National Curriculum Tests and for General Qualifications. It can also play a role in identifying children with handwriting difficulties and provides relevant information for planning intervention. The assessment includes five subtests, each testing a different aspect of handwriting speed. The subtests examine fine motor and precision skills, the speed of producing well-known symbolic material, the ability to alter speed of performance on two tasks with identical content and free writing competency.
Also available is the DASH17+ for students aged 17-25 years in further and higher education. Standardised subtest and composite scores are provided, based on a nationally stratified normative sample of over 500 children collected across the UK in 2006.
Complete Kit includes: Examiner’s manual, laminated reproducible test cards, a timer and 25 record forms in a bag.
