Test Disclosure and Disclaimer for the Website

All material- written and visual is the copyright property of the Association and Schools, Institutes, Teachers and Individuals are not permitted to reproduce or copy it without written consent of the Association.

The Dyslexia Association of India™ is a registered Charitable Trust with full NGO status and all tests and remediation are provided for on a cost-to-cost basis. The Not For Profit charter of the Association extends to all children and adults who need assistance and is not limited to any particular section of the society.

The screening provided is not intended to replace any medical advice given relating to the child by a qualified registered medical doctor nor is it intended to diagnose any disease. All effort has been made to ensure that tests are carried out with maximum accuracy based on the performance of the child at the time of administering the test. Results and Recommendations are not valid for Medico Legal Cases. Assessments are voluntary and the findings of the assessment / screenings are informative in nature and to be used for a wider application of the assesse's ability.

The Dyslexia Association of India™ stands absolved and is not liable or accountable for any errors in interpretation of the results by third party individuals.

The information contained in report by the Dyslexia Association of India should be treated as strictly private and confidential. It should also be noted that Psychological screenings are not infallible and may at times be 'equivocal' and decisions should not be made solely upon the outcome of the assessment.

Behavior can and may vary according to the context and circumstance. Motivation, anxiety, attention and interests can affect a child or students score at the time of screening or being assessed.

It is not unusual for the same child to perform differently when screened by a different individual given the subjective and psycho sensory nature of the human beings.

Given this anomaly in human cognitive behaviour, the Dyslexia Association of India™ makes all attempts and has been historically extremely accurate in its testing and assessment of children and individuals. This document may not be used to retain a student, to exit a student from school, to socially or academically discriminate against the student or pressurize the parents in any manner.

Psycoeducational and Neuropsychological assessments by their very nature are dependent upon the response bias of the child. Interpretation and findings are thus based on the readings of the given responses. While such assessments and results are quite accurate, parents are encouraged to use their own initiative and awareness also to read the reports on a wider platform. This will help their children with the parents and adults who come into contact with them knowing what strategies to follow to help the children and also to correlate what they observe on a daily basis with what the examiner observed in a clinical settings.

The Dyslexia Association of India™ retains the readings of the assessments for a period of three months before deleting them for reasons of safety, security and client confidentiality.

Test readings are not provided in their entirety within the report - as an Internal policy and if any parent is not comfortable, the association does not force or solicit the parent to have their child assessed by the DAI™.

The primary reason for not providing all statistical markers and readings is to prevent secondary reading by outside commercial practitioners who may have their own interpretation of the statistics and who without conducting their tests personally on the child - may in error misguide and misrepresent to the parents about their own capabilities and logic of the academic and learning abilities of the child along with any learning disorders.

Test non-disclosure policy is a standard internationally acknowledged criteria by law and test materials fall outside the definition of 'personal information' with test items, response, answer sheets (which include test items), scoring templates, keys, programs and other protocols being retained as the property of the Dyslexia Association of India™

It is not unheard off and the DAI™ has evidence that has shown that it is possible for academicians and secondary professionals to 'Dismiss' the concept of learning disabilities and 'Dyslexia' as a myth and create confusion for the parents who eventually have abandoned their effort to help their own children on such statements made randomly without professional neuropsychological knowledge about the subject.

These experiences have formed the basis for non-disclosure to third parties (except/excluding parents of the child) who are entitled to disclosure within the premises of the association whereupon after viewing, the same are returned back to the Association, as results are not in the public domain. Detailed description and interpretation can be provided only in-house to the biological parents in privacy.

This screening document is intended to support the students learning for home and classroom only and should not form the basis of any discrimination or evidence for exclusion from school which is in any case against the law of the Land where it clearly states that no child can be requested to leave school and no parents can be forced to withdraw a child in case the child has any form of a Learning Disability. This document is a combination of a Psycoeducational assessment as well as a Neuropsychological Psychometric assessment and the data are combined to provide the best possible analysis of the readings.

This document is not valid for any medical related query and case or any civil or criminal or Medico Legal Case and the right to challenge is expressly waived and relinquished in entirety by the client for perpetuity once a representative of the child has collected the screening report or availed of any service mentioned.

If needed parents must have the concluding findings on the last page medically co-related so that a comprehensive action or remedial plan can be generated for the child who has been screened.

Subsequent to starting any medication, caregivers and parents must consult with a medical specialist to ensure monitoring of the child.

By clicking on agree, the Terms & Conditions are automatically activated.

All screening test measures are reported as percentile ranks (PR). Percentile ranks are reported and used as they are not subject to variation in interpretation when the screening report is provided to the school and therefore prevents individualized interpretation of the screening depending upon the educators own understanding of what the numbers and figures should stand for - or how they should be interpreted.

Percentile Ranks also have an advantage in our opinion as they integrate proficiency on the task, which is retained internally by the Dyslexia Association of India™ as explained above and also provide an accurate understanding of the percentage of children of the same age whose scores are the same, below or above that of the child who is being screened.

All Neuropsychological and Neuroeducational screenings have a systematic and scientific modality of calculating percentages and these are strictly followed and implemented at the DAI™.

For example when we use the Woodcock - Johnson III (WJ III) relative proficiency indexes are reported. These are derived from a mathematical calculation of probability based on the norms. Therefore as an example, this index would predict the child's proficiency on tasks similar to those on the screening, at a difficulty level at which typical children of the same age would be 90% successful. And 90% represents mastery of a skill or ability.
