Specialized Reading Assessments
Reading is a complex process for students. When they experience challenges with reading, it can impact their performance in all academic areas. It is particularly important for a child to develop independent reading skills by the time they reach the end of the third grade.
In order to gain a better understanding of a student’s journey to becoming a reader, a cognitive and detailed reading assessment can provide information to support programming and learning. A diagnostic reading assessment can determine the developmental reading skills that a student has already mastered and the skills that they need to continue to develop in order to become as successful learner. A comprehensive reading assessment can be particularly important for students who are not responding to interventions that have been provided at home and at school.
A detailed reading assessment can be used to pinpoint if a student’s challenges are due to
- Verbal processing
- Background knowledge
- Phonological awareness
It is important to note that early intervention provides the best opportunity for success for students who are struggling with reading. Prior to a comprehensive reading assessment, it is recommended that a student has their vision and hearing checked to rule out any roadblocks that may be factors in their learning.
