Admissions

KSA offers a variety of comprehensive and specific-oriented evaluations.  Prior to each evaluation, we spend time getting to know our clients, so that we can tailor the testing to gain the greatest possible insight.  To provide a comfortable and productive experience, we break longer evaluations into shorter testing sessions (typically over two days).

At KSA, we take the time to focus on the individual, which allows us to see how they respond to new situations, approach different tasks, and handle success and/or frustration.  This offers us the opportunity to produce an easy to read report with more meaningful results, rather than relying on numerical test scores alone.  Read below to find out about an admissions evaluation.

For admissions evaluation: With our more than 30 years of experience serving the Washington, DC metro area, KSA is able to offer our clients exceptional guidance and support when making important school placement decisions.  If required as part of the application process to an independent or private school, an admissions evaluation can be provided.  During an admissions evaluation, one of our trained professionals will briefly assess your child’s cognitive abilities and/or academic skills using the Wechsler Tests (i.e., WPPSI-IV/WISC-V) and the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement (i.e., WJ-IV).
