The Dyslexia Portfolio is a screening and identification assessment for dyslexia, for pupils aged 6-16 years.  It comprises of nine short tests which provide a detailed profile of a pupil’s literacy, processing and memory skills.  It includes tests of: single word reading and spelling; reading fluency, phoneme deletion; non-word reading; rapid picture naming; writing speed; and forward and reverse digit recall. The Portfolio contains an online report generation tool, which produces statistical, graphical and narrative reports on each individual after the scores have been entered.
