Consultation and Assessment


Claremont Educational Services, Inc. (CES) offers a full spectrum of consultation services for parents seeking to identify appropriate remediation strategies for students struggling at school. With early identification of literacy deficits, students can receive focused interventions that will address their specific needs and provide effective remediation.

The consultation service may include a review of reports, including psycho-educational assessments, to determine appropriate programs and remedial services for the student. Alternatively, we can provide formal testing to investigate the nature of possible learning deficits.

Assessment Services


CES provides language and math assessments consisting of formal and informal testing tools. Written reports include remedial strategies and programs where appropriate. Parents can choose between Dyslexia Screening, where key issues associated with dyslexia are assessed, or an in-depth Language Assessment. Our Education Assessments include Language and Mathematics.

If your child is having difficulty remembering letter names or sounds, learning to read and spell, difficulty remembering math facts or focusing in class, he or she should be tested as soon as possible. The earlier an identification of dyslexia is made, the more effective the appropriate remediation will be.

Testing consists of two phases: Academic and Psychological.
  1. Academic The Academic Educational Assessment uses formal and informal tests to determine whether your child has a developmental delay compared to other children of the same age.Our tests include:
    • Wechsler Individual Achievement Test-III (WIAT-III)
    • Lindamood Bell Auditory Conceptualization Test 3 (LAC-3)
    • Comprehensive Test of Phonemic Processing (CTOPP) for phonological awareness
    • Test of Word Reading Efficiency (TOWRE) for word attack skills and processing speed
    • Test of Written Language (TOWL-4) for written language
    • EVT-2 and PPVT-4 are used to assess oral expressive and receptive language. You will receive a written report which is confidential and you may choose to share this with your child’s school or keep it for your own records. Recommendations for remedial teaching or therapy will be made.
  2. Psychological If the results of the Academic Educational Assessment are lower than expected for the student’s age, we may refer you to a psychologist or doctor for further intelligence testing using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – IV (WISC-IV).A qualified psychologist is the only professional who can make a diagnosis of dyslexia.

Neil is a different boy from a year ago, not only because his reading is starting to come along, but because he is enjoying school and, once again, believes he can learn and succeed. Honestly, the Claremont School has been a god-send for Neil.

Our mission is to teach students with dyslexia, so that they may fulfill their considerable potential and gain the skills and self-confidence needed for academic success.

A warm and exceptional teacher, Evelyn provided a wonderful overview of the Orton-Gillingham approach in her Associate Level course. I consider it a privilege to have been her student.

Claremont has given my child the best possible learning environment. His learning is tailored to his strengths and he feels positive about himself and his capabilities. The learning at Claremont is structured but also flexible, allowing for my child to succeed.

My grade 4 daughter is finally being taught in a way that she can learn. The school has been a gift for us all. The daily routines, the structured approach to reading and writing learning, and the positive environment with other kids like her have all been wonderfully helpful. It is a world of difference for us this year from her prior public school that just (tragically) did not have the adequate supports for her kind of learning.
