approach

We prepare children for the rigorous NYC elementary school entrance exams. Since these exams are IQ tests, it’s imperative to provide strategy-based, concept-driven sessions.

We approach Test Prep by providing short-term interventions with tangible goals. Instead of drilling students with test questions, we aim to improve executive functioning skills through strategy-based learning.


EVALUATION

The first session consists of an evaluation test. This background is imperative in accurately assessing the way a child reasons and solves problems, rather than how many answers they answered correctly. The evaluation session assesses where a child’s strengths and growth spots are within the academic material of the exam.

Using the results of the evaluation session, a behavior plan is adapted to the standardized testing materials.

Our evaluation looks at the following skills:

  • Performance on the academic material

  • Attention

  • Concentration

  • Cognitive Flexibility

  • Emotional Regulation

  • Self-Monitoring
