Dyslexia Early Screening Test-Second Edition (DEST-2)

R. Nicolson  & A. Fawcett.


The Dyslexia Early Screening Test - Second Edition (DEST-2) battery contains screening tests of attainment and ability. These determine whether a young child is experiencing difficulty in areas known to be affected in dyslexia. An 'at risk' score for dyslexia determines whether further in-depth testing should be undertaken. A profile of skills provides valuable information that can be used to guide in-school support.

The DEST-2 consists of 12 subtests:

  • Rapid naming
  • Bead threading
  • Phonological discrimination
  • Postural stability
  • Rhyme/Alliteration
  • Forwards digit span
  • Digit naming
  • Letter naming
  • Sound order
  • Shape copying
  • Corsi frog
  • Vocabulary (group/individual).

The DEST-2 replaces the bestselling Dyslexia Early Screening Test (DEST) and includes two additional subtests, clinical research data, a new 'at risk' category and scoring software.
