How We Help

The Inform to Transform Cognitive Assessment

What is a Cognitive Assessment?

Did you know that most learning struggles are caused by cognitive weaknesses, not laziness or lack of instruction? This means that your child's processing skills, long and short term memory, focus, or reasoning ability might be hindering his/her progress. 

Our comprehensive Cognitive Assessment was created to test your child's brain skills. This is something they've likely never been tested for. The results of which can make a significant difference in your child's life. 

The Cognitive Assessment takes about two hours to complete and shows us exactly which cognitive skills are strong and which skills need improvement. Our assessment report gives measurements of percentile rank, age equivalence, and standard score. Percentile rank indicates where your child ranks in comparison to 100 of their same age peers nationally. Age equivalence indicates how your child's scores compare with the average scores of other age groups. Standard score indicate how far above or below average your child's score falls, using a common scale (ex: “average” of 100). IQ score is normally presented as a standard score with “100” being average. With all of this information, we see a clear picture of how your child is performing in relation to his or her peers, and we can make informed decisions about how to help your child succeed. 

What Does the Cognitive Assessment Measure?

  • Memory - How long can we hold information and recall it during tests or homework assignments.
  • Attention - How well can we stay focused on completing important tasks. 
  • Processing Speed - How quickly and accurately can you perform tasks,
