An L.D. Screening Device That Can Be Given to Entire Schools in Less Than 10 Minutes. AVKO "Great Idea" Reprint Series No. 609.
This booklet presents a screening device to identify quickly those students who may qualify for special help but who have not been referred for testing, identification, and receiving of special education resources. The booklet notes that the original test consisted of 20 sentences, but that only one sentence gave students known to have severe reading and/or spelling problems extreme difficulty, but caused little problem for all other students--"Many students often find studying difficult." The booklet discusses the original test, offers reasons why this one sentence is effective as a "rough" screening device, and presents instructions for test administration. The booklet notes that those students who seriously misspell the sentence, and who are not already identified as learning disabled, should undergo further testing to determine their eligibility for special help.
