For use with the Test of Integrated Language and Literacy Skills™ (TILLS™), other assessments, or on its own, the TILLS Student Language Scale is a simple, cost-effective way to screen for language and literacy disorders, including dyslexia. This quick and easy 12-question screener is filled out by parents, teachers, and students to show each party's perspective on how the student is performing on academic tasks as compared to their same-age peers.

The SLS helps you:

  • Screen for language/literacy disorders such as dyslexia by gathering teachers' and parents' ratings of students. When teachers or parents rate more than two areas on items 1-8 less than 5, SLS results indicate the student is at risk and needs further assessment with TILLS. (Sensitivity and specificity are strong: sensitivity is .92 for teachers and .85 for parents, and specificity is .90 for teachers and .83 for parents.)
  • Gather input about a struggling student's strengths and needs from multiple sources—a key requirement of IDEA
  • Enhance home–school communication by gaining new insight into student performance, whether or not there are concerns

Sold in a pack of 50, the Student Language Scale (forms only) is also included in the TILLS Examiner's Kit. It can also be used as a standalone tool to gather valuable information about a student, or used with other assessments of student performance and potential.
