Our full psycho-educational assessment results in a robust learning profile of the student as well as a multitude of recommendations for teachers, parents and our Thinking Cap Learning Specialists to best serve your child.
HOW IT WORKS
There are several different kinds of academic assessments. Thinking Cap offers a full psycho-educational assessment as a stand alone service or as a starting point for our one-on-one services. See below for a comparison of different assessment types.
Our assessment process begins with a free initial consultation with parents to determine the outcomes that are desired as well as a more detailed description of the assessments we use. The assessment is generally about a six-hour process, but we break it down into two or three hour sessions on consecutive days. After the assessment sessions are complete, we score and analyze the results and create a detailed report of our findings. The final report is generally available one month after the last assessment session and is presented in a parent meeting.
For families who are hoping to use our assessment to request services in a public school or are pursuing a diagnosis of a learning disability, we work in collaboration with a local psychologist.
A full psycho-educational assessment is often the starting point for our work with children, though we do not require full psycho-educational assessment to begin services. For students who have already completed some level of assessment through a school district or with another professional, we will determine what more we may need in the initial consultation.
