CoPS is the best way to solve the problem of identifying dyslexia...and the best way to prevent pupils from developing reading and writing difficulties.Karin Ohlis, Specialist Teacher, ReLS, Bollnäs, Sweden
CoPS is a leading assessment system for children aged 4-8., and is currently used by over 6,000 schools in the UK and around the world. CoPS can help teachers identify dyslexia and many other cognitive difficulties that can interfere with children’s learning.
CoPS comprises nine tests of fundamental cognitive skills that underpin learning. Each test is presented as an attractive and enjoyable game that takes about five minutes. Results, in the form of graphical profiles and individual response records, clearly show children's strengths and weaknesses in comparison with national norms. Percentiles, standard scores and age equivalent scores are provided. By understanding the child's strengths and weaknesses, potential problems can be spotted at an early stage, and appropriate learning and teaching intervention strategies can be put in place, with the help of the comprehensive manual.. The graphical profile also gives the teacher important insights into children's learning styles.
Dyslexia and labelling
Many teachers are uneasy about applying labels at an early age. Instead, CoPS enables you to understand the cognitive limitations that lie behind dyslexia, and to tackle these directly without needing to be concerned about labels. Read our report ‘Hooked on labels not on need’.
