For use on its own or with the Test of Integrated Language and Literacy Skills™ (TILLS™), the Student Language Scale (SLS) reliably screens students ages 6—18 years for language/literacy disorders, including dyslexia.

This quick and easy 12-question screener is filled out by parents, teachers, and students to show each party's perspective on how the student is performing on academic tasks as compared to their same-age peers.

This concise User's Manual shows you how to effectively use the SLS to:

  • Screen for language/literacy disorders such as dyslexia by gathering teachers' and parents' ratings of students. When teachers or parents rate more than two areas on items 1-8 less than 5, SLS results indicate the student is at risk and needs further assessment with TILLS
  • Gather input about a struggling student's strengths and needs from multiple sources
  • Enhance home–school communication by gaining new insight into student performance, whether or not there are concerns

You'll get reader-friendly guidance on how to administer the SLS with teachers, parents, and students; a complete guide to the technical data supporting the SLS; and three examples that show how the SLS can help you make sound decisions about followup for students who need it.

Ideal for use with TILLS! Give the SLS to a whole class—and when results indicate the student is at risk, follow up with TILLS assessment.
