What is it and how accurate is it? Just been rebooking at my refusal to assess letter and it mentions the school did this steet with her and she came out with a reading age of 8 years 2 months - she's 10 and 4 months now but no date given when the test was done. She wasted for reading albeit it was a different test via dyslexia action when she was 10 years and 1 month and the result there was a reading age of 6 years 8 months so either she has are drastic progress in a matter of weeks or something isn't adding up somewhere. The teachers spelling test put her at age 7 years 2 months which is less by 2 months than the test by dyslexia action

If I ask for her school records will these tests be in there ? My daughter mentioned about having to do a test which she couldn't do and the teacher got mad at her and made her go and sit in a separate classroom but could still not do it and the teacher was upset with her for not being able to do it so helped her - I have no idea if this could be the 'test' or I guess anyway of knowing

Suffolk Reading test is sentence comprehension based.

With dyslexic problems at the single word level you should using single word reading tests like nferNelson.

The sentence can allow the child to guess a word and does not test their ability to read it.

What test did disability action do?

They did the WIAT-ll with her which out her 2nd centile. They also did GORT 5 reading test for speed and comprehension.

Keep also last year the school did the swift spelling test with her and put her at 6yr 8 months. The refusal mentions school doing a spelling test but doesn't state which one they have done.

WIAT-II should be more accurate. Ed Psychs are specifically trained to administer and interpret assessments.
