Chennai: British Dyslexia Association has said that the screening tests used in India for diagnosing dyslexia are on par with international standards. The comments came amid greater awareness on dyslexia among parents and faculty in the country.

Dr Angela Fawcett, vice president, British Dyslexia Association, and Professor Emeritus of Swansea University said on Monday that DST-J, Karande’s test and DALI checklist are on par with world standards and skilled Indian researchers have developed these screening tests.

 

The leading international researcher in dyslexia and other developmental disabilities visited the city and conducted a training workshop for the parents of dyslexic children and educators on the topics of early intervention and diagnosis of disability organised by the Madras Dyslexia Association.

Dyslexic problems in learning languages and general dyslexia were the important points discussed in the workshop, among others. Ways to harness other potentials of the dyslexic children also discussed. “When more dyslexic persons emerge into popular figures, dyslexia would not be considered a disability. Dyslexic persons have high creativity,” she said.

“No retention policy and poor funding for education in India are also adding to the problems,” she said.
