 THE EVALUATION CENTER

 

The purpose of The Evaluation Center is to provide quality evaluation of children to identify underlying causes of academic difficulties.  Our Center places special emphasis on early identification of the learning disability of Dyslexia.

 

The Comprehensive Psycho-Educational Evaluation consists of standardized, norm-referenced assessment tools administered by licensed practitioners and generally includes four components:

 

·         Cognitive skills assessment which measures the student’s core ability to learn and can pinpoint the root causes of persistent learning problems.

·         Achievement assessment which measures proficiency in specific subjects and can alert parents to holes in their children’s education.

·         Verbal Language assessmentwhich measures expressive and receptive communication skills necessary for academic achievement.  Undiagnosed language

          disorders are often the underlying cause of difficulty with learning.

·         Reading assessment which focuses on the skills and underlying systems necessary for fluent, efficient reading. The information gained by such testing is specific

          and can be critical as you help your child overcome problems and succeed in school.

 

Parents are expected to complete a comprehensive educational and medical history for the child, provide samples of academic work and provide other information related to providing an accurate and comprehensive evaluation.  An evaluation is only as good as the information on which it is based.  We make every effort to be comprehensive in evaluating all aspects related to the child’s learning situation.

 

Comprehensive evaluations typically require 4-8 hours of individual testing time conducted over several sessions,depending on the tolerance of the child.  A post-evaluation conference will be scheduled to review the findings and answer any questions.  Results are presented to the parents and a complete written report will be provided by mail following the conference.  Once testing has been completed, estimated time to conference is 6-8 weeks with variations due to scheduling and response to requests for additional information.

 

The 3-D School's Evaluation Team includes diagnosticians who are licensed through the Mississippi Department of Education and/or Mississippi Department of Health in their individual area of practice.
