Woodcock-Johnson IV Assessment

Woodcock-Johnson® IV Assessment

This comprehensive test allows us to evaluate learning problems, prescribe individualized intervention and measure progress. The three WJ IV tests can be used independently or in any combination. They are: tests of achievement, oral language, and cognitive.

The WJ IV emphasizes the identification of strengths and weaknesses in student thinking by providing comparisons between the student and other students the same age or in the same grade, as well as providing a way to measure progress over the course of intervention.

 

NILD is ...a dedicated group of highly trained educational therapists who recognize the learning potential of every child. With compassion and competence, they provide explicit, differentiated instruction to address and resolve each child's unique learning challenges.

Professor of Learning Disabilities at University of Arizona, Co-author, Woodcock-Johnson III Test of Achievement, and author of several books
