Comprehensive review and analysis allows CST to perform Child Study Team educational evaluations for children preschool to 21 years old who are experiencing academic difficulties. Our assessment includes:
•  Individualized Evaluation
•  Standardized Aptitude Testing
•  Review of Academic Records
•  Teacher Consultation
•  Parent Interview
•  Functional Measures
•  Student Interview/Observation

Unbiased test results identify a student's learning strengths and weaknesses. This helps educators plan programs and direct learning resources, including educational specialists and therapy. The assessment process facilitates a coordinated approach among school districts, parents and students that can best position a child for improved academic progress.

CST partners with the three most important components of a student's learning process:
•  School Districts dedicated to providing students with proper educational support
•  Parents committed to playing a guiding role in their child's educational development
•  Children, who help us help them reach their potential.

Outcomes of the CST review and analysis result  from a disciplined and comprehensive examination of the whole child. We focus on the specific areas of need in determining a child's eligibility for special education and related services. Our reports help guide educators and parents in developing an appropriate road map to improved academic achievement for a child. Our reports are comprehensive and comprehensible to educator and parent alike, and may include a referral element relating to the psychological component of our analysis.

CST is a fully state-approved agency. Our assessments meet the New Jersey Administrative Code Title 6A Chapter 14-Special Education.

These include evaluations and information provided by parents, schools and/or agencies; intervention measures previously taken; and developmental and school records.
