Independent Educational Evaluations

Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs) are evaluations conducted by a qualified examiner who is not employed by the school district responsible for the education of your child.  If you disagree with the outcome of the evaluation that your school district has already completed and have gone through the process to request an IEE, Achievement Advantage Assessment & Services may be able to complete it for you.  A list of IEE providers for your child may be obtained from your school district, but you have the right to choose a provider of your choice, even if they are not listed.  Please select the Safeguards tab to view the current legal information for the State of Ohio for further information about your rights to an IEE.

Orton-Gillingham (OG) Assessments

Many students with dyslexia or other language-based learning disabilities receive structured literacy instruction that is based on the Orton-Gillingham (OG) approach. We specialize in assessments that align with common structured literacy programs, such as the Wilson Reading System. This type of evaluation focuses on skills related to sound-symbol knowledge and common letter patterns, as well as reading and spelling different syllable types. An Orton-Gillingham (OG) assessment can provide the educational team with the information they need to plan the most appropriate intervention or special education services for your student.
