Learning Assessment Details

Blocked Learning Gate Assessments

Blocked Learning Gate Assessments with Dianne Craft Learning System

Dianne Craft Learning Systems will be providing screening to identify your child’s blocked learning gates.  Learning gates can be considered information pathways.  When we speak of a blocked learning gate, we mean that the processing skill has not transferred into the Automatic Brain Hemisphere. The child continues to need to concentrate on the processing task because of this lack of transfer.  This assessment will evaluate the effectiveness of your child’s four learning gates.

  1. Visual Processing Gate: The act of moving the eyes over a page from left to right is not a naturally developed trait.
  2. Writing Processing Gate:  When the child’s visual/spatial skills, or the act of writing, haven’t transferred into the automatic hemisphere, he often looks like he’s “sloppy, lazy or unmotivated.”
  3. Auditory Processing Gate:  A child, who is suffering with an Auditory Processing Problem, generally has trouble with reading.
  4. Focus/Attention Gate:  A child may look like he has no memory, or a true learning disability, when what is really going on is that this child has to use too much battery energy to remain focused during the instruction or completing the lesson.

Dianne Craft Learning Systems will discuss each learning gate individually and show you the corrections that can be made by the parent.

The cost of participation is $10 and will be entirely donated to the Casterline Single Moms Fund.

Please note: One child per family. These screenings will be conducted online prior to the conference Bonus Day. Upon registration, we will notify Right Brain Learning Systems who will set up an appointment prior to the conference.

Reading Assessments

Reading Screenings with Bridget Mosley, M. Ed., Educational Therapist, and Author of Master Books Academy’s WowzaBrain Program

Reading is the gateway skill to homeschooling success. If your child seems to be struggling, a screening will let you know his or her reading level based on phonemic awareness, oral reading fluency, and comprehension skills.  Bridget offers reading screenings for families of children aged 5+. Screenings take 10 minutes and include an additional 5-minute debrief with parents. You’ll learn your child’s reading level, fluency rate, word accuracy rate, and comprehension level, which will help you develop the next steps in your child’s reading program.

The cost of participation is $10 and will be entirely donated to the Casterline Single Moms Fund.

Please note: One child per family. These screenings will be conducted online prior to the conference Bonus Day. Upon registration, we will notify Bridget Mosely who will set up an appointment prior to the conference.

 

Executive Functioning Assessments

Executive Function Assessments with Tara Roehl, MS, CCC-SLP

Tara Roehl, MS, CCC-SLP will be providing Executive Functioning Screenings for families with children 8 years old and older. These screenings will look at key developmental areas of planning and organization in your child including working memory, metacognition, sustained attention, task initiation, flexibility, goal directed persistence and more. The dynamic assessment will take approximately 10 minutes, followed by a 5 minute debrief with the parent(s).

The cost of participation is $10 and will be entirely donated to the Casterline Single Moms Fund.
