An academic assessment has the potential to answer a range of referral questions including but not limited to:
What are my child's academic strengths and weaknesses?
How do my child's academic abilities compare with other children in their year grade?
Does my child have a listening comprehension weakness and if so, what supports are available?
Does my child have a word decoding weakness and if so, what supports are available?
