The Dyslexia Screening Test now covers primary and secondary school-aged children in two separate assessments. The division of the DST into two tests, DST – Junior and DST – Secondary, include extra subtests which are particularly relevant to the age group. The DST-J provides a profile of strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide the development of in-school support for the child. New theoretical developments in dyslexia research suggest that it should be possible to identify both slow learners and potential dyslexic children at the age of 5 or 6 years, in time for greater reading support. The DST-J is designed for early identification of children who are at risk of reading failure so that they can be given extra support at school. The DST-J 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.

The DST-J 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 Writing
  • Verbal Fluency
