QuickScan and QuickScreen – Two OnLine dyslexia tools.
QuickScan is an online questionnaire that provides an insight into learning modalities and other aspects of study skills as well as dyslexia.
QuickScreen is a more in-depth diagnostic-style test that looks at ability and performance in a range of literacy skills.
The dyslexia screening tools are ideal for both:
- individuals at home – and
- organisations – for their recruits, staff or students with a management portal, detailed reporting and annual licenses
Whether you are a personal user, educational establishment or workplace organisation, you have the option to use one or both of these screening tools depending on your requirements and results.
Please note there are costs associated with both tests.
But if you are signed in as a Display Screen Optimiser subscriber you can have a free go on QuickScan on the Tools Page
Why are we mentioning another company and website on our site? Because coloured overlays, in our case background colours for your digital display screen, help with dyslexia too.
In fact, this is how they were brought mainstream.
From working with people with dyslexia, we now know that coloured backgrounds also help mitigate the risks of screen fatigue.
