A Pilot Instrument of Dyslexic-Type Language Difficulties: The Aston Index.
Thompson, M.
Described is the Aston Index, a pilot instrument designed for screening dyslexic-type language difficulties in young children. It is explained that the index consists of three forms to test children at three stages of development (such as those who have been in school about 6 months), that it represents an "integrated" approach, and that it includes well-known items from various sources. Discussed are specific components of the index which cover general underlying ability (such as copying geometrical designs); family history (such as laterality); and performance (such as visual sequential memory).
