Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run a report if not all subtests have been completed?

It is strongly recommended that all five tests in LADS Plus should be completed whenever possible. However, in exceptional circumstances the person may not have completed all five tests, e.g. because they became unwell or because of excessive anxiety. In such cases, the program will not be able to give an automatic categorization in terms of probability of dyslexia, although partial guidance on interpretation will be automatically provided.

In order to interpret the findings of the screening the assessor will need to refer to the results of the individual tests that have been completed. It may be possible to supplement these results with other information available to enable the assessor to reach a judgement about the likelihood of dyslexia. Special care should be taken in these circumstances - it is recommended that advice be sought from a psychologist or dyslexia specialist.
