Product Details

The DST–S provides a profile of strengths and weaknesses which can be used to guide the development of in-school support for the student. The DST–S assists in identifying students who are still experiencing reading difficulty.

The DST–J and DST–S replace the best selling DST and reflect changes in theory and practice with their additional subtests, validation studies, and case histories.

New Subtests:


This subtest is a more sensitive measure of phonological ability for those children able to cope with the segmentation test. It has a higher level of complexity and memory load.

Non-verbal Reasoning

It is generally considered that dyslexic children and adults are likely to have relative strengths in reasoning ability, especially if the reasoning involved is not language-based.

  • Educational Practice in Dyslexia: Professional Roles and Knowledge Gaps

    Presenter: Tina Eichstadt and Adam Scheller


    Five webinars about dyslexia held in 2016-2017 were attended by 6,591 SLPs, psychologists, and special educators. Webinar data offered insights into practitioners' perspectives on dyslexia training needs and role clarification in practice settings. Presenters will discuss results, which suggests gaps between best practices in dyslexia and reports from individuals engaging in clinical practice.

    Learner Outcomes

    After the completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

    1. List the two areas of dyslexia training practitioners request most often.

    2. Describe the knowledge gap identified by practitioners using scores for assessment and progress monitoring.

    3. Identify the role(s) practitioners currently play in inter-professional practice regarding dyslexia.
