Product Details

PAL-II Reading and Writing is a comprehensive, researched-based assessment system based on research funded by NICHD. PAL-II has applications at three tiers ranging from prevention to problem solving consultation to differential diagnosis. PAL-II Reading and Writing links to targeted evidenced-based interventions and lessons.

PAL-II Reading and Writing is the first nationally normed standardized test that can be used to diagnose dysgraphia, dyslexia, oral and written language disability (OWL LD).

PAL-II comes with a User Guide on CD that helps professionals in psychology, speech and language, education, and occupational therapy learn to use the PAL-II Reading and Writing. The interventions are included in the kit, and may be printed to use in the classroom.

Features & Benefits

  • Easier to administer with the PAL-II User’s Guide CD
