Psychoeducational Testing for Predominantly English-Speaking Students Receiving Schooling in French: Can a Learning Disability Explain Challenges?
Testing students who speak English—as a dominant or first language—while receiving schooling in French adds complexity to any assessment of learning, especially when a Learning Disability might explain the difficulties your child is having. When you are looking for clinicians to test your child, it’s important to ask these questions:
- Will all of the testing be done in English?
- Will any of the testing be done in French?
- If there’s a mix of French and English testing, what kinds of tests will be done in French?
