Product Description

A classroom test for screening and diagnosis of language difficulties.

The Aston Index consists of 17 sub-tests, the use of which, as its name implies, will indicate the nature of an individual childs learning potential for literacy. The sub-test scores yield a 'profile' from which a teacher can perceive the levels of 'readiness' for learning; and which sub-skills and abilities will need special help in teaching.

The sub-tests themselves were selected after many years of observation and research, as representing key aspects of literacy:

  • Visual and auditory perception
  • Symbolic sequencing
  • Directional motor fluency
  • Association of picture and symbol with lexical meaning
  • General maturational readiness

The Aston Index can be used to indicate the particular learning pattern of the child and identify specific types of learning patterns:

  • Specific written language difficulties (Dyslexia)
  • Slow learners
  • Culturally deprived children
  • Neurologically damaged children
  • Language disordered children
  • Specific auditory difficulties
  • Specific visual difficulties
  • Specific graphic difficulties

Comprises of:

  • 17 page handbook
  • spiral bound test card book (contains 17 tests)
  • additional support material
  • resource CD
  • flash cards
  • 30 scoresheets

Age suitability: 5 years +

Additional Aston index scoresheets available.
