TEST2r Presentation on Wednesday 29th January 2020!

This presentation will introduce the components of TEST2r.  These are the Manual, child’s scorebooklet, suggested interventions and a website providing links to resources. Participants will have an opportunity to handle the various components and experience at first hand the structure and content of TEST2r.  This early screening, diagnostic and intervention tool has been developed by Irish teachers for Irish schools and is intended to prevent literacy acquisition difficulties in 5 & 6 year olds. Class and Support Teachers may administer TEST2r in their schools. TEST2r was formally launched by the Minister for Education and Skills in June 2017. 

Pauline will have the TEST2r kit with her for all participants to share.  However, if you have a copy of the kit at your school please bring it with you to the presentation. 

To find out more, please visit the ILSA website where you will find a 15 page article on TEST2r in the LEARN Journal Volume 39 2017.   https://ilsa.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Learn-Journal-2017.pdf
