ACTIVATE™ provides an early assessment of a student’s special needs and abilities. Conventional assessment processes are time-consuming and very expensive, and so they are reserved for children who demonstrate clear signs of cognitive or emotional issues. Most kids just sink or swim until a problem is noticed. By then they have already fallen behind.
Think how valuable it would be to have a simple, immediate, low-cost assessment. Think how many kids could be put on a success trajectory at the beginning of their formative years. Think how many kids could be saved from high-cost, disruptive special needs intervention programs.
Assessing cognitive growth requires scientifically designed tools. In order to combat the lack of uniformity and the questionable validity of assessment tools available to educators, parents, and clinicians, the National Institutes of Health has developed a “Toolbox” of cognitive assessments.
