Sky Bound Learning offers targeted, skill-based assessments and comprehensive literacy evaluations for struggling learners to assist parents in designing a plan of action for their child.

What is a comprehensive reading evaluation?

The goal of a reading evaluation is to understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses, and assess important features of reading development that will inform specific recommendations for appropriate instruction and purposeful intervention in the areas of reading, spelling and writing. 


Sky Bound Learning uses both standardized, and criterion-referenced assessments in its evaluation to provide a specially designed, individualized plan.  All evaluations cover skills in the areas of: academic achievement, phonological processing, reading/decoding, spelling/encoding, comprehension, receptive and expressive vocabulary, written expression and handwriting. An evaluation may also provide recommendations for additional testing in the areas of cognitive functioning, speech and language, executive function, and/or assistive technology. 

How It Works:

1. Review of Educational Records: Prior to testing, a review of records is conducted to determine the student’s educational history and needs, and to ensure that there is no duplicative testing.  Records may include, but are not limited to, work samples, progress monitoring data, and parent reports.


2. Test Administration: Administration typically occurs over two to three sessions although under some circumstances additional or fewer sessions may be warranted. Given that both standardized and criterion-referenced testing occurs, the number of testing sessions and duration may vary.


3. Consultation & Written Report: A consult will occur to present findings. The written report sets forth specific recommendations for a targeted, individualized plan, and effective interventions to help support the child’s school-based team and family.
