Children who have trouble with reading, spelling, comprehension, or writing typically have an underlying learning difficulty that’s not yet been identified. To determine how to best help your child, we first have to understand why they’re struggling.
Our assessments are:
We conduct assessments with one child at a time so they have our examiner’s full attention.
Most kids feel nervous when their assessment begins. Our friendly team quickly puts them at ease so they enjoy the process.
We gather both data and anecdotal information about how your child responds to the tasks. That way, we can understand how hard your child has to work to learn, process information, and solve problems.
As we interact with and observe your child, we’ll notice strengths that may not show up in traditional “test results.” This is critical information we can leverage to accelerate your child’s progress.
The assessment instruments we use are standardized, which means they provide objective data that’s easy to measure and track. Our tests are also nationally-normed, so we can see how well your child performs when compared to their grade-level peers.
Our team considers your child’s test scores, examiner observations, and your input to identify their unique learning profile and to map out a customized action plan.
