Following a long period out of the classroom, many children may have taken a step backwards in literacy learning but, music, the world’s first and most popular language could help fill the gaps. In her recent article, dyslexia specialist tutor and assessor Dr Anne Margaret Smith, who has previously taught English for 30 years in Kenya, Germany, Sweden, and the UK, explains why music offers a fun and stress-free way to get these children back on track with their reading.
As the Recovery Curriculum is implemented in schools, how can all students be supported within their ‘bubbles’, to ensure that they don’t get left behind? In their recent article, Pamela Hanigan and Rachel Gelder, founders of Lancashire Dyslexia Information Guidance and Support (LDIGS), discuss how schools can build targeted interventions into classroom bubbles.
Frequently Asked Questions...
What do we do after we have the results?
Our award winning assessment now comes complete with a dedicated interventions package, which aligns with our assessment outcomes to support both emerging and fluent readers in their development.
Lexplore Intensive has been pioneered by experienced SENDCOs, literacy leaders and dyslexia specialists, to support precision teaching. With no lesson plans required, the programme is ready to go if you’re classroom teacher or TA.
What if a pupil does not have English as a first language?
Our assessment can offer a fresh perspective when it comes to assessing pupils with English as an additional language. With powerful algorithms, able to provide fully objective results, we can offer the same exciting insight into reading regardless of children’s different backgrounds and situations.
” We want to root out any reading difficulties as soon as we can so we can help pupils make progress. Lexplore Analytics provides us with a completely unbiased way to assess our children “
As a Lexplore Customer, we will visit your school or organisation to carry out the theoretical and practical Training needed for your staff members to test children independently. The technology and method is extremely simple to set up and understand meaning the training process is usually completed in one or two days.
How do eye movements reflect reading attainment?
Reading involves a complicated interplay between many different cognitive and linguistic processes. Measuring when, where, and how a child’s eyes move in relation to the words they read allows us to quickly evaluate how effectively these processes work together, and pick up on minor differences in the way they process text.
“Eye movements is one of the best ways to index reading ability at an incredibly in-depth level.”
Our Eye Tracking assessment has been developed following over 30 years of peer reviewed research at one of the leading medical institutes in the world into the unique insight eye movements can offer us into reading.
A quick 30 minute online demonstration gives you the opportunity to explore our assessment and results portal, ask any questions you might have, and find out how Lexplore Analytics could work for your school.
We estimate that the assessment takes between two and five minutes per pupil, depending upon their reading speed. This enables schools to quickly assess a large number of pupils without additional workload. The results are available immediately in our user-friendly portal with no marking required.
” One of the main reasons we chose Lexplore is because it frees up so much time. Previously, it took teachers an entire term to do accurate assessments on their whole class. By contrast, 200 children went through the Lexplore assessment process in a week. Within five minutes of each assessment we had the results of their reading activity and an accurate attainment level.”
At what age can a child sit the Lexplore assessment?
At the minute our assessment is for primary and secondary children in years 2 to 10.
