The series of Raven’s Progressive Matrices and Dyslexia Screening Tests are scientifically developed, well-researched and are widely used by many renowned schools and psychologists. The children are assessed on a series of tasks which target to evaluate accuracy and fluency in reading, writing, and spelling. In addition, tasks also focus on motor coordination, attention span, reasoning ability and vocabulary. These tasks appear to children as interesting since they involve identifying pictures, solving puzzles, and answering simple questions.
Launch into Reading Success provides a programme to teach the phonological awareness skills designed for use by classroom and Special Needs teachers. It is a carefully sequenced auditory training programme beginning with single words as units of sound and concluding with linkage. It should be used with children, aged 2 to 12 years, with mild to severe indicators of literacy/learning problems.
