The Complete Elbert Evaluation including social/emotional domain, grade level, and complete learning difference screening (SLI, VPD, APD, SCP) including memory-abstract thinking, etc. (takes 3 hours). Since I’m a dyslexia interventionist, I do a pre-diagnostic eval./screening to see if testing needs to be done or if there is another underlying problem that needs to be addressed. This is not a diagnosis, more like pre-planning or first steps. The cost is $150 and includes a lengthy report for schools/families. Also includes a FIRST ONE FREE Consultation (30 min to discuss my observations)…Based OFF ELBERT™: EVERYONE LEARNS BETTER EMBRACING REVOLUTIONARY TEACHING!!!

I observed the student’s sensory acute response to stress and interview teachers the child, and parents, observe input/output of motor, verbal, and written behaviors in response to a literacy activity such as a phonics inventory, word- sound knowledge, phonological awareness exercises, and working memory activities along with the student’s interest survey and overall behaviors based on executive, somatic and autonomic functioning. My program is named ELBERT™ based on see in store is based off my book: HERE and includes the important help for the triune brain which includes the following: Brainstem- I have a fight, flight and freeze sympathetic/parasympathetic observational checklist; Midbrain- a screening for vestibular, proprioceptive, somatic issues, along with speech/language development, auditory and visual processing; Limbic- My lesson plan template that includes the 4 F’s: Facts, Forms/Functions, Feelings & Future along with a progress monitoring tool; Cordial- holistic, alternative suggestions for taking care of the whole child’s individual, dynamic needs.Lastly, my program, Elbert, includes a self-guided literacy intervention program, along with other coaching through a course on understanding Dyslexia and consulting (first one Free)!

Limbic– My literacy lesson plan template that includes the multiple intelligences along with 4 F’s: Facts, Forms/Functions, Feelings & Future. Note: Limbic Areas that are typically included in the limbic system fall into two categories. … and (brainstem) processing side and short-term memory (the limbic cortex, amygdala, and hippocampus) and (midbrain) which is a small part of the brain above the pons that integrates sensory information and relays it upward. In terms of longterm physiological changes, it is also associated with long-term memory. For assessment and ongoing evaluation, I use a rapid word and letter-sound recall checklist, plus some informal observations included in the lesson plans-mentioned above.
