Since its release in 1996, Lucid CoPS has become established as the leading computerised assessment system fo children in the 4-8 age range. CoPS is currently used by over 6,000 schools in the UK and elsewhere in the world, and several foreign language versions have been developed. Lucid CoPS has proven scientific validity for the early identification of dyslexia, and can help teachers identify many other cognitive difficulties that can interfere with children's learning.

Lucid CoPS comprises nine tests of fundamental cognitive skills that underpin learning. Each test is presented as an attractive and enjoyable game that takes about five minutes. Results, in the form of graphical profiles and individual response records, clearly show children's strengths and weaknesses in comparison with national norms. Percentiles, standard scores and age equivalent scores are provided. By understanding the child's strengths and weaknesses, potential problems can be spotted at an early stage, and appropriate learning and teaching strategies can be put into place to overcome difficulties and prevent failure. The graphical profile also gives the teacher important insights into children's learning styles so that educational experiences are optimised for the individual.

Lucid CoPS assesses:

Although Lucid CoPS can enable the teacher to identify dyslexia (if necessary, before the child has commenced reading instruction), it does not demand that the label 'dyslexia' be used. Many teachers are uneasy about applying diagnostic labels at an early age. Instead, CoPS enables teachers to understand the cognitive limitations that lie behind dyslexia, and to tackle these directly without needing to be concerned about labels. The software is accompanied by a comprehensive teacher's manual that explains how to interpret the profiles and outlines suggestions for a wide variety of teaching strategies that match the profile.
