Check out a review that shows you just how help the MindPrint assessment can be for you and your family!
“Molly is brilliant, knowledgeable, thorough, helpful, empathetic and kind. I cannot say enough good things about MindPrint & Molly and the process my son went through in working through his ADHD assessment and process mapping. It has been emotionally draining prior to working with Molly. We have hope again! She takes a full person approach, which I appreciate and my son has a renewed confidence I haven’t seen in years. Shout out to AASS and Molly. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

Students, ages 8 to 21, looking to take the assessment should meet the following criteria:
Most school tests assess academic skills and achievement, which focus on WHAT a student know. Cognitive skills focus on HOW a student learns, understands and recalls information. All children deserve the opportunity to understand how they learn best, and MindPrint shows them by testing the skills that allow them to learn across all subjects.
Unlike school achievement tests, students are not tested on reading or math. Instead, students are taken through a series of computerized, adaptive activities. Many students remark that the assessment is a series of puzzles and it is fun to do! There is nothing that children need to do to prepare for the test.
Absolutely not! Most students would only find value in taking the assessment every 3 years. However, if a student has started a medication that may impact learning, such as an ADHD medication, then doing an updated assessment can be done in approximately a year.
Absolutely! MindPrint can help all students, whether they are in public, private or homeschool. Homeschool parents can use this assessment to help choose the best curriculum based on a child’s cognitive strengths, as well as choose projects that will be a good fit for in-depth learning. It also gives homeschool students greater self-awareness of how they learn best, leading to more self-reliance. Contact us to learn more about our homeschool co-op discount.
Every students deserves to know how they can learn best. We can work with schools and teachers to help their students to succeed. Additionally, we can help school districts close the achievement gap, retain high quality teachers and help students do better on a variety of achievement tests.
