44% of parents who noticed their child exhibiting signs of difficulty with learning waited a year or more before acknowledging their child might have a serious problem.*
For the majority* of incoming cases, REED operates on a standard three-tier process: Intake. Assessment. Intervention.
Intake In order to best serve its pupils, REED Institute works most efficiently when it’s part of a team with parents and the child’s home school. Depending on the presenting problem, school counselors or learning support teachers may initiate a referral. A larger number of REED clients also come from parents who have sought out services on their own.
Assessment REED has trained and licensed professionals who conduct a wide range of assessments. To obtain a comprehensive and correct picture of the whole child a developmental approach is adopted. Typically the following aspects will be assessed:
- Cognitive Abilities
- Achievement Skills
- Behavioral Patterns
- Social and Emotional Status
- Language Skills
All Intervention programs delivered at Reed or recommended by our specialist staff are evidence-based. This means that the effectiveness of these programs has been independently researched and documented. Recommended programs are recognized by respected learning facilities worldwide, and are peer-reviewed by researchers in their corresponding disciplines.
