Diagnostic Testing – $200
We begin by testing your child with an achievement battery. If you are not in Colorado, we will schedule a phone test, and send you the visuals for the test. The tester will then call you at the appointed time and perform the test. If you are local, we will do the test one-on-one. Parents are welcome to sit in on the test. Fill out the Individual and Family Profiles below, as well as our Learning Skills Rating Scale and send them to us along with the test visuals. These forms assist in the curriculum design, as the test only provides a snapshot of your child’s skills. The cost for the test for an enrolling family is $150 paid on testing day which includes a customized curriculum planning strategy session for each child.
Note: If you prefer a Portfolio Evaluation rather than a diagnostic achievement test for your student, please use the “Our Products” tab above, click on “Purchase Homeschool Services”, then “Portfolio Assessment-Student Progress” for a description of the evaluation and the cost.
Again, local families we prefer to do face-to-face, if not, we will do it over the phone. At the consultation, you will give your feedback on the curriculum Teri prescribes for your child. Because each child has his/her own curriculum design especially for their needs, learning problems are “no problem.” You as the parent have the final say in any and all curriculum choices. We can order your curriculum for you, if you wish, or we can help you get it on your own. Please give us 30 days from the time of testing to have all of your books in hand. Curriculum average costs can range between $200-$500 per child depending on age and needs.
If your child has learning challenges, we can also administer a cognitive skills screening for an additional $50 ($100 without achievement battery). This tests underlying learning skills in six areas: processing speed, working memory, visual processing, auditory processing, word attack skills, and logic and reasoning. This test takes approximately 30 additional minutes to complete.
You can even pay the fees for testing online:
Cognitive Skills Testing Fee – stand alone
