Guide Early Interventions for Students with Dyslexia
Early intervention for reading problems, including dyslexia, is highly effective. Interventions provided in kindergarten and grade 1 require far less time than addressing problems in higher grades. The best interventions are driven by universal screening data. As a result, many states have passed laws requiring universal screening for dyslexia.
Using the Formative Assessment System for Teachers (FAST™) could help you meet those requirements and provide teachers with data to support all students, including those with dyslexia.
What to Look for in Dyslexia Screeners
Not all assessments can be used for dyslexia screening. Does your current system meet the five criteria for effectively identifying
young students who are struggling?
