Educational Evaluations

Depending on student age and disability, our experts strategize a plan that helps your loved ones meet their academic potential

Understanding how a student learns is essential in helping them reach their potential

CCSN’s Educational Evaluations look closely at the student's current academic level and how the student learns and what strategies are required to help them gain new skills and knowledge.

Our educational evaluations are designed to gather detailed information on the academic skills demonstrated by complex learners, ranging from students with learning disabilities, to students with executive functioning challenges, to students whose programming emphasizes functional academic goals. These evaluations are recommended for students who may be struggling academically, require monitoring of academic progress, or need academic intervention.

Assessment activities vary depending on the student’s needs and the referral questions, but typically include:

  • Standard measures of academic abilities as well as measures for executive functioning and memory, behavior, and adaptive skills
  • Clinical diagnostic interviews completed with the student, family members, and teachers.
  • A review of medical and educational records where parents and teachers are asked to complete rating forms
  • Feedback sessions, where we meet with families to review test results are reviewed and specific recommendations for treatment planning
  • Other assessments (such as a psychological/diagnostic, speech and language or occupational therapy evaluation), depending on the individual’s specific presentation and needs
  • An on-site program review of the individual’s educational program
  • A specialized educational assessment to evaluate functional academic skills for those diagnosed with vision, hearing, or motor impairments, and individuals who have an intellectual disability

After the assessment, a comprehensive report is prepared and sent to families and educators or healthcare providers as appropriate, including test results and specific intervention and programming recommendations.
