Davis Assessments

Initial Consultation

A phone interview is conducted with the parent to gather information on the child. Then an appointment is set up to meet with your child for one to three hours. The required assessments include a symptoms profile and a perceptual assessment. A grade level assessment in silent/oral reading and writing are optional.

Symptoms Profile

Symptoms profile is a questionnaire that establishes rapport between client and facilitator, establishes key points where a client is having difficulty, identifies areas of strengths, discusses program goals, establishes motivation, and helps the facilitator design a program that fits with the client’s particular needs.

Perceptual Assessment

The Perceptual Ability Assessment tests for the presence of four perceptual abilities shared by dyslexics. These include: the ability to experience self-created mental images as real world phenomenon, the ability of the brain to distort perceptual information, the ability to consciously view mental images three dimensionally, and the tendency or preference to think non-verbally with pictures of concepts and ideas vs. internal dialogue. This assessment also evaluates the type or orientation the student needs.
