Our first step is to perform an assessment to determine your child's needs.
The Johnson Academy offers a comprehensive assessment battery consisting of diagnostic tests designed to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses. An assessment establishes baselines in areas such as reading rate, reading accuracy, reading comprehension, spelling, mathematics and written expression. This allows for comparisons to be made to current levels of abilities in numerous areas. The clinician will then be able to determine if there is a language based learning disability such as dyslexia (reading disorder) dysgraphia (disorder of written expression), dyscalculia (disorder of mathematics), phonological disorder, or language disorder.
After the assessment, a consultation is scheduled to explain the results and discuss if an individualized evidence-based intervention, classroom accommodations, home-based interventions, or referrals to other professions is appropriate. Each assessment is tailored to specifically address areas of concern. Here are some of the disorders treated at The Johnson Academy and the appropriate interventions.
