OSPI K-2 Literacy Screener (Dyslexia)

Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, students in Grades K-2 will be screened for indicators and areas of weakness associated with dyslexia by their teacher. TPS is utilizing the i-Ready Universal Screener and Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) Assessment to screen students. 

What is a Literacy Screener?

A literacy screener is a short, informal test that is given to all students to determine whether further testing is needed. It is not a formal evaluation for learning difficulties. 

Why is my Child being Screened?

  • Early and intense intervention to address reading difficulties is the best way to prevent early problems from becoming more sever over time.
  • With early identification and intervention, students at risk for reading difficulties, including dyslexia, can succeed in school and graduate ready for college, career, and civic life.
