The Spectrum Academy offers psycho-educational evaluations for students to determine academic achievement, mental ability, dyslexia, and ADHD. Assessment batteries are tailored to the child's individual needs. All test materials are norm-referenced and compared to other students by age.


• Intellectual tests measure the student's overall learning potential. Intellectual evaluations may include verbal concept formation, nonverbal reasoning, working memory, and processing speed.


• Achievement tests will help determine strengths and weakness mainly in the following areas: Word Recognition, Reading Comprehension, Decoding, Reading Fluency, Math Reasoning, Math Calculation, Listening Comprehension, and Written Expression.


• Dyslexia is a language-based reading disorder which is characterized by difficulty reading or decoding words. If testing for dyslexia, a comprehensive evaluation of the student's phonological processing is included.


• A student's ability to understand and communicate language skills may be screened. If the student's language ability appears to be deficient, further evaluation may be recommended for an evaluation with a speech and language pathologist.


• Computerized performance testing may also be included to help in the assessment of ADHD. The Quotient ADHD Test is a FDA-cleared technology for objective measurement aiding in the assessment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.  It measures motion and analyzes shifts in attention state to give an assessment of the core symptom areas of ADHD: Hyperactivity, Impulsivity, and Inattention.
