READING EVALUATIONS

"To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark." – Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

"Every child would read if it were in his power to do so." - Betts, 1936


 The Reading Evaluation is a very comprehensive assessment of all areas that relate to the reading process.    Not only does it assess the student’s decoding, word attack and reading comprehension skills, but the specific underlying difficulties that lead to these difficulties.  Regarding the underlying “mechanical” aspects of the reading process, the evaluation assess phonological and orthographic functioning as well as rapid naming skills.  The specific evidenced based reading programs are designed to address different types of dyslexia and this clarifies which programs or combination of programs should be used.   Regarding the comprehension aspects of the reading process, the evaluation assesses word knowledge, reading vocabulary, verbal reasoning skills to determine which aspects interfere with the reading comprehension process.  In addition the evaluation assess scanning skills, working memory and others areas of neuropsychological which could also interfere with the reading process.
