If testing is required, a one-hour assessment of the student is conducted with a consulting school psychologist. The screening instruments include a test of verbal and nonverbal reasoning. Additional information from a parent inventory is incorporated with test results to provide a student profile. Students who have a strong composite profile are recommended for the program.
