What does a SPELD NZ assessment diagnose?
We use the internationally recognised Woodcock-Johnson assessment. This can take up to four hours and is often split into two sessions. It identifies intellectual and educational strengths and weaknesses, and evaluates the skills involved in effective learning, such as:
- Language and auditory skills
- Visual skills and spatial awareness
- Speed of processing
- Short and long term memory
- Reading, spelling and mathematics
- Co-ordination and organisation
- Attention, concentration and academic fluency
The report includes some technical language. However a clear summary is included and your SPELD NZ Assessor will be happy to answer any questions.
