3D Learner Focus Assessment Assesses Your Child’s
Reading Speed and Comprehension, Attention and Eye Teaming
Our Focus Assessment includes assessing:
- Attention — using the Interactive Metronome ®
- Eye Teaming — using the Visagraph ®
- Reading Comprehension using Reading Plus ® for 4th graders and above and a Woodcock Johnson Comprehensive Assessment for younger students
- Visual Motor Integration (movement)
Then we work with you to develop a Success Plan on what to focus on and how you can make the difference
5 things parents often learn from the Focus Assessment:
- That their child often loses focus after just a few minutes. The Interactive Metronome allows you to see what is happening – the video below shows what often happens to students when they lose focus
- That their child skips words and lines when reading — this is true with more than 70% of our students — the video below shows a student who had this problem and how much progress he was able to make after 5 weeks of training
- Their child’s present level of reading speed and comprehension — with passages of comparable length to what students are tested on
- Whether their child’s left and right sides are effectively integrated
- The parents get to experience some of the tools we use and to see how we work with students
Watch these two videos that explain the attention and eye-teaming parts of the focus assessment.
Eye-teaming issues are often missed or misunderstood. Our Focus Assessment provides an excellent screening tool, the Visagraph ® (on the left). that shows how a child’s eyes track when reading.
Our reading assessment evaluates a student’s reading speed and comprehension (not oral fluency). Students read longer passages and the results show their reading comprehension and silent fluency, as well as their vocabulary level. Most schools assess students by having them read a short passage aloud, without testing their comprehension.
Our visual motor assessment often identifies students who are lacking fine and gross motor skills that impact learning. This includes difficulties with coordination and balance.
One mom commented,
“My child’s school told me her reading was a year below grade level, now I discovered her comprehension was 3 years below grade level. I never understood this before”
