Evaluation Services

The Ann Robinowitz Education Center is a leader in providing educational evaluations, diagnostic reading evaluations, and dyslexia screenings for children with learning differences.

Our former Executive Director, Dr. Gordon F. Sherman and our Director of Education Deardra Rosenberg, saw a need for a place in the special education community where parents could have their children tested and receive a diagnosis in order to help families plan for the present and future. Research consistently shows that the sooner learning differences are identified and addressed, the better the chances are of overcoming them.

Evaluations

Because students with dyslexia can still score within acceptable ranges on some standard language skill tests, the more nuanced indicators of dyslexia or other NVLDs they present are often missed. We use standardized and non-standardized evaluative methods to thoroughly understand and better diagnose a student’s unique academic and cognitive challenges. And, the evaluative process factors in background and history alongside multiple fundamental performance assessments to draw as accurate a picture as possible of a student’s verbal and nonverbal language skill set.

The Evaluation Process includes:

  • Review information from parents and teachers about the child’s educational background, developmental and medical history, family history, and other details.
  • Administer battery of tests to determine the child’s strengths and weaknesses. Testing may include oral language, phonological skills, decoding, reading comprehension, reading fluency, writing, and spelling, depending on the child’s history and age. 
  • Score tests and review information collected to form a diagnosis (including an action plan for intervention), which will be provided in a written report. Please note that screenings do not lead to a diagnosis – they simply identify warning signs.

Free Dyslexia Screenings

We offer a limited number of free dyslexia screenings. These screenings are for children in grades K-3, who have never before been tested for learning differences.  Though limited in scope, these screenings will help you determine if you need further information about how your child learns. 

Please note that screenings are offered at the Ann Robinowitz Ed Center, which is located at The Laurel School of Princeton and at The Newgrange School of Hamilton.  Be sure to confirm the location of your registration.

Consultations

For parents who are overwhelmed with the results of their child’s evaluation, progress in school, or type of intervention that is most appropriate for their child, let our Educational Consultants help. We provide consultative services to parents to help them navigate dyslexia. This includes reviewing records, performing school observations, and recommending interventions and support to fit and enhance the profile of the child.

In addition, our professional learning consultants can provide consultation to school administrators at public and private schools who are looking for appropriate interventions in literacy, professional development options, and review of records for a particular student.
