LASS is easy to administer as students require only minimum supervision. It helps identify students with dyslexia, as well as:
- assessing attainment in reading and spelling
- measuring discrepancies between actual and expected literacy attainment
- identifying underlying problems in memory or phonological skills
- monitoring development in reading and spelling on a regular basis
- evaluating progress in memory, phonological and phonic skills
- estimating the student’s intelligence
- assessing reasoning
Reports give percentiles, standard scores and age equivalents (including reading and spelling ages). Results show children’s strengths and weaknesses in comparison with national norms. Use of a standardised graphical profile makes it easy to spot students who are underperforming.
Any difficulties of a dyslexic nature or caused by underlying cognitive problems in phonology and/or memory can be quickly identified. Assessment can be carried out on a regular basis to monitor progress.
