I offer school readiness assessments, namely: the Aptitude for School Beginners (ASB) Assessment.
The ASB is a psychological assessment used as a screening tool to evaluate certain aptitudes or abilities which are important in elementary education.
The test will assess a child’s readiness to start grade 1 and will highlight areas where the learner is struggling to meet certain minimum requirements for her/his age group. This information can assist teachers in devising an appropriate Learner Support Plan and provide recommendations to parents to help the learner improve in those identified areas.
The 8 areas that are assessed include: Perception, Spatial Ability, Reasoning, Numerical Ability, Gestalt, Co-ordination, Memory and Verbal Comprehension.
The ASB assessment can also be done with a current grade 1 learner in order to identify any particular areas of development where additional input may be needed in order for the learner to better manage the academic demands of formal schooling.
