Reading Assessment

 

 

A  reading evaluation is mandatory before our Multisensory Reading and Spelling Program is initiated. It is also very helpful to individualize your child's learning needs and develop an appropriate learning plan if you provide us the family background information and a copy of your child's psychological evaluation, school's performance report,(IEP, a sample of his works: writings, tests, etc.).

 

Our reading assessment involves standardized and informal evaluations. It measures the student's decoding, receptive, and writing skills (both basic writing and handwriting skills). 

 

The decoding part of the assessment includes the test of the alphabet, word identification, word attack, spelling, reading fluency (rate and accuracy), passage comprehension and vocabulary.

 

The receptive language portion involves tests that measure listening comprehension, vocabulary, and phonological processing skills.

 

The written part deals with basic writing skills and handwriting, such as letter formation and how the student grasps the pen or pencil.
