School districts in the U.S. are mandated to identify young children with disabilities. Developmental screeners are typically used to screen for such skill deficits. Academic tests are used in older students. A significant challenge is identifying children with potential learning disabilities early in their school career. This study identifies a relationship between language skills on the DIAL-3 developmental screening in kindergarten and literacy skills one year later.
