Screening for individual needs


I have come across a couple of useful tools that deal with identification of need. The first tool is doitprofiler. This will identify for your school or workplace a need someone might have and make suggestions to help that individual. Their is a school and workplace tool. Go to http://www.dotiprofiler.com. Costs vary according to the tools used Screening + profiler £48

Vision screening can identify something that is often overlooked when considering someone’s lack of achievement . This free tool can enable you to find out if someone has a visual need. Worth checking your pupils out at http://www.screeningforschools.com/

If you prefer face to face training then take a look at this facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Visualisetraining?fref=ts. It’s not free  but might provide you with valuable insights you could make to your organisation . Here is what they say:-
