Diagnostic Evaluations, grades K-12
Daelene King, MS, CCC-SLP, Director

When parents and/or teachers have concerns or want to know more about how a student learns best, one of our

comprehensive learning evaluations is a good place to start. Each evaluation we do is expertly designed to clarify a student's

learning strengths and challenges, and   results in highly personalized, practical, research-supported recommendations.

What to Expect


Our evaluations begin by gathering  background information from parents, teachers and others working with a student. Diagnostic procedures are then carefully chosen, including standardized testing and other assessments. After the student is evaluated, findings and recommendations are shared in person with parents, and in a written report that will be useful for the next two to three years. Skills evaluated often include:

Academic Achievement -- Literacy acquisition; decoding, reading comprehension; writing content, spelling; math ability.

Spoken Language – Vocabulary, oral directions, comprehension, grammar/syntax, narrative language, language formulation and organization, word retrieval.

Information Processing Skills – Auditory and visual processing, memory capacity and efficiency, short-term vs. long-term memory, phonological processing, processing speed.

Executive Function – Planning, impulse control, mental flexibility, attention regulation, self-monitoring, working memory and more.

Critical Thinking – Cognitive aptitude, problem solving, recognizing part-to-whole relationships, cause and effect, verbal vs. non-verbal reasoning.
