Literacy Evaluation

Literacy Evaluation

The ALLC psycho-educational evaluation meets the needs of individuals between the ages of 6 and 17 years old. The comprehensive assessment includes a battery of tests which measure intellectual ability and academic skill level, as well as characteristics of dyslexia. This includes hearing and vision screenings, IQ/cognitive ability assessment and achievement testing in core academic areas (reading, math and writing). Possible measures include: Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – 3rd Edition; Woodcock Johnson Tests of Cognitive Ability – 3rd Edition; Wechsler Individual Achievement Test – Second Edition; Woodcock Johnson Tests of Achievement 3rd Edition, among others. Assessment may include both standard and extended subtests in order to provide as much information as possible on an individual’s skills and capabilities.

The evaluation process takes approximately 10-15 hours, depending on the individual. Additional evaluation in the areas of Speech and Central Auditory Processing may also be conducted, as appropriate.

The ALLC psycho-educational evaluation meets the criteria for determining school-based needs and eligibility for specialized programming, namely an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or Section 504 Accommodation Plan. It is recommended that updated evaluation be completed every 3 years in order to determine current needs, strengths, and progress made.
