A: The assessment consists of testing for intellectual and processing abilities, components of achievement, social/behavioral functioning, consideration of back- ground information and observations. A disability can be identified for potential services.
Q: How much does an assessment cost and what does this
A: A full assessment will cost from $1500 to $2200. This
will include assessment appointments, a thorough and individualized report, and an office appointment to review
the results and recommendations for further action. If
there was prior current assessment, a partial reassessment
may be an option at a lower cost.
Q: Can I get this assessment done by my child’s school?
A: Under some circumstances, children will be eligible to
have similar assessments completed by their local school district. Many parents who seek this assessment privately
want a more in-depth assessment, did not want to be on a
waiting list for assessment, or prefer to choose their own examiner.
In some cases, parents may ask the school district to pay
for an “Independent Educational Evaluation” or I.E.E. Dr. Johnson is approved for I.E.E.’s in San Diego and Riverside Counties. In order to find out the process for requesting district assessments or an I.E.E., you would need to contact
a representative of special education from the district in
which your child attends school.
