A dyslexia evaluation is a comprehensive information-gathering process designed to identify the factors contributing to a student's difficulty with learning to read and spell.
At ReadWrite, a student being tested for dyslexia undergoes a full-day (or two half-days) of educational testing. The results are then scored and analyzed, and a full, narrative report is developed and written. The narrative report includes testing results, a diagnosis, if warranted, treatment recommendations, and a list of educational accommodations specific to the student’s needs. Approximately two weeks after testing, a parent meeting will be scheduled to review the testing results, narrative report, and recommendations.
Our testing protocol investigates the following domains: - Oral language abilities, including receptive/expressive vocabulary, oral/listening comprehension, reasoning, word retrieval, and following directions - Nonverbal intelligence and reasoning - Math reasoning, computation, calculation, and math facts fluency - Word recognition, untimed and time-pressured - Decoding, untimed and time-pressured - Oral and silent reading fluency, untimed and time-pressured - Spelling, in isolation and in written text tasks - Phonological processing, including phonological awareness, working memory, and rapid retrieval or naming - Written expression, conventions and spontaneous writing tasks - Reading comprehension, untimed and time-pressured
The fee for this process is $1,850.00. We are a private-pay facility and payment is due upon arrival on the day of testing. A detailed invoice will be provided (upon request) for anyone wanting to file a claim independently with their insurance.
