King-Devick Test (K-D Test) for Reading is used worldwide as a screening tool for eye movement disorders related to reading performance.

King-Devick Test is based on the time to perform rapid number naming. It involves reading aloud a series of single digit numbers from left to right as quickly and accurately as possible without making errors on a standardized, electronic testing platform. Quickly and objectively administer the K-D Test for Reading with age-matched percentile rank and accuracy result scores for subjects from 6 years old through 14 and older.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress reported that children that are not proficient readers by 4th Grade are 4 times more likely to drop out of high school. However, only 34% of 4th Graders are proficient readers.

Studies have shown that there is a significant relationship between poor oculomotor functions and learning disabilities. Subjects who perform poorly on the K-D Test may not be efficient readers. K-D Test is a valuable tool for teachers to help determine if a student’s poor reading performance is related to deficiencies in their ability to move their eyes efficiently.

Providing solutions by teaching the physical act of reading.

In a study published in Clinical Pediatrics, King-Devick Reading Acceleration Program (RAP™) software significantly increased reading fluency in elementary school students over a training period of six weeks. Efficient and accurate eye movements can be trained and correspondingly reading performance can be improved.
