TESTING

'I called your office on the recommendation of a friend. A little over a year later, my son can't stop reading. He reads signs as we drive along in the car,

reads books to me, reads all kinds of things in his environment. I am amazed.' - Sandy M., parent

Our clients have a wide range of needs. Many experience difficulty with reading and spelling. These difficulties may be minor, moderate, or severe. Often, those with moderate to severe problems are classified as dyslexic or learning disabled. Other students may read well, but struggle to comprehend material they read or hear. Some students have vocabulary or math difficulties. Others may need enhancement of their word attack, writing, or study skills. We also treat individuals who struggle in many or all of these areas.

Each prospective student completes an extensive two- to three-hour battery of standardized tests administered by experienced professionals. The purpose of the testing is to accurately define the student's strengths and weaknesses, and to identify any factors contributing to problems in the learning environment. The examiner then uses this information to design an individualized plan of treatment that will thoroughly address any areas of difficulty.

Following an evaluation at Northwest Reading Clinic, clients attend a consultation with the examiner to discuss the test results and answer any questions. The examiner also discusses the recommended course of treatment, including the estimated number of hours and the programs to be used. Consultations generally last one hour. A written report based on the test results and consultation will be mailed to the client one to two weeks after the consultation.
