The Dyslexia Referral Checklist (DRC) is a questionnaire developed for Kindergarten, First, and Second-grade students that builds a link between direct assessment of early reading skills (e.g., universal screening and progress monitoring measures) and classroom observations. The DRC has versions designed for use in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade. The DRC was designed following an evaluation of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) domains and the Texas Education Agency’s Dyslexia Handbook (2018).
Below you can access the DRC Manuals. Each document contains a section on how the checklist was built and three appendices. The first appendix is the screening tree for dyslexia (A), followed by the checklist (B), and finally the anchor explanations (C) for each measure. Download the DRC Manual to use with any progress monitoring tool, or log in to CLI Engage in November 2020 to complete the Dyslexia screener and the checklist and track student data online.
