We provide evaluations for preschool students and children who are soon
transitioning to kindergarten to assist in determining school readiness. Preschool
evaluations are helpful for assessing a child’s functioning in five primary areas
which include: cognitive skills, communication, physical/motor functioning, adaptive
behavior, and social-emotional development. Preschool evaluations can also be
helpful for determining any needs the child may have in preschool, and for providing
helpful recommendations regarding treatment and early intervention.
Many parents are eager to start a kindergarten program with their child, but may be
uncertain as to the right time to begin. If you have questions concerning your child's
readiness skills in general, a school readiness evaluation can be quite helpful for
evaluating your child’s strengths and potential weaknesses, ascertaining specific
services/interventions they may need within the classroom, and determining the best
educational environment for your child.
A kindergarten readiness assessment typically covers language and developing
literacy skills (speaking, listening, writing, pre-reading), social skills (ability to
separate from parents, desire for independence, ability to play well with others),
motor skills (fine and gross motor), and basic math skills.
