The report was handed to me by letter from the class teacher, I have since found out results given were all wrong on the clusters, she actually got 13th verbal cluster 6th non verbal 63rd spatial 23rd special non verbal 16th gca
Not sure whether that's better or worse!
Still waiting for a meeting.
Maths was 12th percentile Reading 18th Spelling 25th
I seriously hope your educational psychologist didn't give you this report cold (or worse post it out to you) with no explanation! I would be straight on the phone to ask them to explain it to you, they should be more than happy to.
Verbal score wouldn't just be about expression but about verbal reasoning and comprehension (if she's been through a battery of tests to check cognitive ability). She does seem to have an uneven profile, which may suggest a specific difficulty. For example, a child with low verbal ability and high non-verbal ability could have dyslexia. I am not saying your daughter has this! Standardised tests are only one tool, has the psych been in to observe how your daughter's getting on in class etc.?
This is my childs educational psychologist report and its totally confusing me, I understand percentiles and I can see how she seems stronger in some areas than others but would any of this be a concern or is she doing ok? Obviously I can see some areas are below average but not enough to need one to one help or anything like that but im also struggling to understand a little what the results mean so for example her verbal on the cluster score does it mean shes not able to express herself as well verbally?
