When should I have my child tested/evaluated? – If you feel that something is not right, it is helpful to seek answers through a comprehensive evaluation. First grade is NOT too early to have your child assessed, especially if you have received teacher reports that your child is struggling and if your child comes home from school very frustrated, shies away from reading and writing tasks, and expresses doubts in his or her ability to do well in school. If you did not have your child evaluated early in their school career, don’t worry! It is never too late.
What will testing tell us? – A comprehensive evaluation measures cognitive learning patterns, academic achievement, executive function, memory functions, speech and language concerns and more. You will receive a complete diagnostic report which reviews the findings of all of the tests that were administered and what that means for your child and his/her academic or speech and language profile. Suggestions for moving forward are included to help guide you towards academic success for your child. If applicable, accommodations are included as well, as a tool for your child’s school.
Will tutoring help my child? – Tutoring through The Summit Resource Center consists of individual sessions which focus upon the remediation of skills and/or the development of study and organizational skills. The frequency and length of tutoring sessions are recommended by the coordinator of the tutoring program. Instruction is diagnostic and individualized. Students strengthen their skills and many feel they can be successful in school because of this support. Many children with dyslexia make progress with at tutor, but once a week is often not enough. The research has demonstrated that intensive remediation is necessary, and the tutor must be trained in a method developed for children with dyslexia. If your child is being tutored two or three times a week and progress is still very slow, it could be time to look for a specialized program that is more intensive.
When tutoring is not enough, what options are available for my child? – This webinar will offer options as well as information about Summit’s Unique Program.
