The minimum components of the test will include:
Ideally the testing is used to understand how the student is currently wired to learn - his or her unique profile of strengths and weaknesses. However, this type of evaluation is also necessary for diagnosis of a potential learning disorder, as well as placement in special education in public schools. It is also required for enrollment in Discovery Program's full educational therapy program so an individually tailored program can be designed. Although tremendously helpful, it is not necessary for skill specific interventions (Rx for Discovery Interventions), early intervention programs, or FIE. The ultimate goal is to understand how the student is wired to learn.
Public schools can provide this evaluation at no cost to the parent, although it is typically a lengthy process. Parents may also seek private testing at costs ranging from $800-$3,000 depending on who is doing the testing and what additional components the evaluator deems necessary to include. Please contact us if you need guidance in getting the testing done or would be interested in a referral to one of our local psychologists.
