Product Details

New features help predict academic success in young children.

As much as you’ve enjoyed using DIAL™-3 for quickly screening large groups of young children, the DIAL™-4 delivers even greater benefits! Updates offer early childhood professionals further advantages with time-saving testing, easier administration, and enhanced reliability. DIAL-4 has been re-designed, re-normed and now for use with ages 2:6 to 5:11!

Users & Applications

DIAL-4 is used by:

  • Preschools and Kindergartens
  • Early childhood specialists
  • Educational and Developmental Psychologists  
  • Speech Language Pathologists
  • Occupational Therapists

Content & Administration

To give you comprehensive information, DIAL-4 provides scores for all five early childhood areas:

  1. Motor area: Gross Motor items include catching, jumping, hopping, and skipping. Fine Motor items include building with blocks, cutting, copying shapes and letters, writing, and a popular finger touching task.

  2. Language area: Items include answering simple personal questions (name, age, and sex), articulation, naming (expressive) or identifying (receptive) objects and actions, plus phonemic awareness tasks such as rhyming and “I Spy.”

  3. Concepts area: Items include pointing to named body parts, naming or identifying colors, rote counting, counting blocks, identifying concepts in a triad of pictures, and sorting shapes. Includes an item that assesses automatic naming of objects, a skill that is associated with potential learning disabilities.

  4. Self-help development: Looks at the child’s development of personal care skills related to dressing, eating, and grooming.

  5. Social development: Looks at the child’s development of social skills with other children and parents, including rule compliance, sharing, self-control, and empathy.
