What is a Cognitive and Educational Assessment?
A school readiness assessment may include testing and assessment in the following areas:
- Concept knowledge
- Speech and language
- Auditory processing
- Fine and gross motor skills
- Social skills
- Behaviour and functioning
- Psychological and emotional functioning
A number of standardised tests are used, including those appropriate for funding applications such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scales (WPPSI and WISC-IV) and and the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT). Further assessments are also conducted as required, such as the Dyslexia Screener, Giftedness Rating Scale, and the Test of Non-Verbal Intelligence- Fourth Edition (TONI-4).
At the conclusion of the cognitive and educational assessment, a written report detailing the results and recommendations is provided during a feedback session with a qualified psychologist.
