Do you want an individualized testing experience where you can test at ANY time during your school year? Do you want your student exposed to a testing situation out of your home? Do you have a student that is "above" in some areas and "lower" in other areas? Do you have a student that is well above "grade level" in your assessment? Do you have a student with developmental delays? Do you have concerns about curriculum choices? Do you have a student that is working at the college level in some areas? Do you have a non reader or early emergent reader? Do you have student that has experienced testing anxiety or anxiety in general? Does your student enjoy a challenge? Do you suspect learning differences? At any time might your student return to a traditional classroom setting? If you answered YES to ANY of these, the Woodcock Johnson Is most likely the best option.
• To measure what your child has learned in reading, mathematics, written language and general knowledge • To help you measure growth and get benchmarks • To look for strengths and weaknesses • To look for interdisciplinary discrepancies in learning: In traditional school many students are overlooked that are are gifted. This group of unserved students are those whose abilities and disabilities mask each other. Students who are gifted and also have learning disabilities do, in fact, exist but are often overlooked when students are assessed for either giftedness or learning disabilities(Fox, Brody, & Tobin, 1983). At ATC we refer to the "learning disabilities" as" learning differences"!
We specialize in special needs, learning differences, preschool to high school, and all types of learners. We also help to assess if your student is ready for Early College (Career & College Promise). ==> • Reading - comprehension, vocabulary, basic skills, phonics & word attack • Mathematics - computation, reasoning & application of basic skills • Language - knowledge, writing skills, expression, punctuation, spelling, grammar • Knowledge - general science, social studies, humanities
