Dyslexia Quest

A rapid dyslexia screener for children aged 5-10

About the Program

The screener identifies those at risk for dyslexia. Game-based tests include rapid automatic naming (RAN), working memory, phonemic awareness and phonological awareness.

Nessy believes that all students students should be screened for dyslexia by the age of 7. It is important to identify early to get the right help and prevent damage to your pupil’s self-esteem.

It is computer based and requires adult supervision. The screener is embedded in a game called Yeti Mountain so children don’t realise they are being tested.​​​​​​​

Most students complete the screener within 20 minutes without developing feelings of test anxiety.

Assessment Breakdown

Assessment game 1: Visual Word Memory
Using commonly misspelled words, hold a visual memory of a word and find the correct match.

Assessment game 2: Auditory Sequential Memory
Listen to a series of instructions and follow them in the correct sequence.

Assessment game 3: Visual Sequential Memory
See a sequence of graphic symbols and find the correct match.

Assessment game 4: Processing Speed
Match a sequence of symbols to numbers.

Assessment game 5: Phonological Awareness
Manipulate and sequence phonemes.

Assessment game 6: Working Memory
Listen, then recall a sequence of numbers in reverse order.

How It Works

Students climb the six levels of ‘Yeti Mountain’, each offering a different test of cognitive ability from memory to processing speed to phonemic awareness. The resulting student profile allows teachers and administrators to identify students at risk of dyslexia.

There are 3 pathways up Yeti Mountain for the child to work their way up, playing games that test 6 areas of learning and memory. Only one pathway should be played at a time with at least a 2 month break between each turn – we recommend once each term. This allows parents and teachers to compare results and monitor progress and response to intervention.
