For many parents, it is a difficult decision to determine whether or not their child is ready for kindergarten. They may be showing they are ready socially, but academically they are slightly behind or the opposite may be true.
At Child and Family Development, our educational specialists offer kindergarten readiness screeninigs that include assessments of academics as well as cognitive, language processing, motor coordination and social/behavioral skills. This data can be very beneficial in helping parents make an important decision about their child’s grade placement. In addition, educational specialists not only evaluate the child, they also consult with parents by giving recommendations for possible treatment or tutoring as well as school options.
