The diagnosis is clinical ... which is why Language Skills requires testing before we match a therapist to a student.
We require educational and psychological testing to access the educational needs for a student. Orton-Gillingham does not help all students all the time. Since therapy is a significant commitment of time and treasure we want to ensure, as much as possible, that Orton Gillingham will provide results.
This testing can be done by the school district or privately. Your student may already have undergone testing by their school and Language Skills accepts these results. When you speak with our coordinator she will determine what you need to submit in order for your student to be evaluated for our program.
