Evaluation and Assessment

At the Moog Center, we specialize in evaluating deaf and hard-of-hearing children, and making educational recommendation.  As part of their educational program, children enrolled at the Moog Center receive yearly educational evaluations that assess their oral language and vocabulary skills, their speech skills, and their academic skills.  This allows us to chart their progress and helps us determine whether or not they are ready for the mainstream.  The evaluation team shares results with the child’s teacher as well as with his/her parents to aid in the educational planning for the child.  

Comprehensive Educational Evaluations

Each year, many families of preschool and school-aged children with hearing loss contact the Moog Center for a comprehensive educational evaluation of their child’s potential for success in learning spoken language.  Our evaluation services are available to any family who wishes to confidentially assess their child’s skills and wants help in making appropriate decisions regarding their child’s educational placement.  These services are provided by trained educators of the deaf and speech pathologists who have had years of experience servicing children who are deaf and hard-of-hearing and their families.

The comprehensive evaluation typically includes:

                •    Language Testing

                •    Vocabulary Testing

                •    Speech Assessment

                •    Psychometric Evaluation

                •    Pre-Academics (if appropriate)

                •    Academic Evaluation


Visiting our school program can also helpful to parents in learning how we work with our children and what can be expected for children similar to their child.
