Psycho-Educational
EVALUATION
We require a full psycho-educational evaluation, completed within the past 24 months. Jemicy School does not administer these evaluations; they must be completed by a qualified professional. We will provide a list of evaluators if requested. This battery of tests must include the Wechsler Intelligence Scale (WISC IV, WISC V, WIPPSI, or WAIS) and should also include a series of educational achievement tests. There is no “standard list” of educational tests to be administered, but testing often includes the Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing (CTOPP), Woodcock Johnson Test of Achievement, Oral Written Language Scales (OWLS), the Beery Developmental Test of Visual Motor Integration (VMI), and the Gray Oral Reading Test (GORT). Please consult with your educational psychologist to determine which battery of tests he/she believes is most appropriate for your child.
