We screen all children in Year 1 using the Lucid rapid ( GL ) assessment. It examines early literacy – phonological skills, visual and auditory memory, and is an early indicator for dyslexia ( a flag, not a concrete diagnosis).
From this, we flag and monitor those children, few of whom are a surprise!
We use the Lucid for other children as well – probably up to Year 4.
Each child needs about 15 minutes, we have trained the LAs in Year 1 to do the screening this year.
