An academic assessment is used to determine a child’s performance in various academic areas such as reading, writing and mathematics. The Woodcock-Johnson IV Test of Achievement (WJ IV ACH) is utilised which measures several areas of educational achievement. An academic assessment is usually conducted together with a cognitive assessment to determine a child’s particular learning profile and/or to identify a general learning difficulty.
An academic assessment typically consists of the following (additional sessions may be required depending on the working speed and concentration/ attention of your child):
- An initial consultation without your child to obtain a detailed developmental history and background information (50 minutes)
- Cognitive assessment (120 minutes)
- Academic assessment (120 minutes)
- Results are provided in a concise, practical report with tailored recommendations
- A final feedback session to discuss the results (50 minutes)
