Dyslexia Screening Test-Junior


The Dyslexia Screening Test-Junior is designed for early identification of students at risk for reading failure. The DST-J replaces the best selling DST and reflects changes in theory and practice, with additional subtests, validation studies, and case histories.

Please note: Dyslexia Screening Test – 2nd Edition (DST-2) will publish in early 2024 and combines the DAST, DEST-2, DST-J, and DST-S.
