Comprehensive Educational Evaluations
This assessment evaluates the following:
- Oral language (expressive and receptive)
- Reading skills (decoding, fluency, and comprehension)
- Mathematic skills (operations, mathematic problem solving, and fluency)
- Writing skills (spelling, sentence and essay composition)
- Academic Processing Skills
- Nonverbal Problem Solving
This evaluation provides insight into the foundations of your child’s academic functioning, and can be used to diagnose a Specific Learning Disability (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia).
This assessment can determine whether literacy-related deficits exist. Specifically, it evaluates the following:
- Identify the sound structure of oral language
- Recall sounds, syllables, words, digits and letters
- Understand the sound-symbol relationship
- Use symbol-sound associations to identify (read – pronounce) real words and nonsense words
- Read accurately, at a story-telling pace, words in isolation and paragraphs
- Spell and write at the single word level, sentence level, and at the paragraph level.
This is a good option for parents who have isolated concerns about reading, as it can be used to diagnose Dyslexia.
