EarlyBird Screener Logo


EarlyBird is the all-in-one easy to administer dyslexia screener and word reading benchmarking tool.

EarlyBird is a fun and delightful game-based assessment. Appropriate for pre-readers, it was developed by researchers, for educators, to identify children at risk for dyslexia and other reading in the window when intervention is most effect.

Developed and scientifically validated at Boston Children’s Hospital in partnership with the Florida Center for Reading Research, EarlyBird integrates key literacy milestones shown to be most predictive of later reading success with powerful analytics to identify where children are struggling on their learning pathway and points to just-right interventions.
