Evaluations

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 a psycho-educational evaluation.

For psycho-educational evaluation: A comprehensive psycho-educational evaluation provides a detailed picture of an individual’s learning style (i.e., the way the person processes, remembers and retrieves information).  This type of evaluation assesses the student’s cognitive abilities (verbal, nonverbal, memory, and processing speed), academic skills (reading, writing, and math), attention, executive functioning, and organization abilities to determine what factors may be impacting academic success.  Specifically, the evaluation examines if the student is academically achieving to the level of his/her intellectual abilities, the student’s strengths and weaknesses, and provides information to make appropriate recommendations for intervention services.
