One in five students struggle with a learning or attention challenge. Most often, these challenges are first identified in the classroom. With early identification and effective intervention, students with learning and attention challenges can receive the support they need to become successful learners.Unfortunately, too few students are identified early, if at all. This can delay intervention, and lead to students falling further behind.
Our Early Identification and Detection (EarlyID) Project team is developing an online, easy to administer,non-language based screening tool that can identify young children at risk for learning and attention challenges and inform early intervention efforts. This online screening tool will be administered by teachers or paraprofessionals, scored automatically and provide instructional recommendations and inform further diagnostic testing.
