Where early intervention makes learning fun.

 

SEARCH is an early identification testing instrument for children 5 and 6 years of age. The test content is designed to survey perceptual and neuropsychological functions basic to learning. SEARCH provides a total score to assess vulnerability to educational failure. It has further power in offering clues as to clinical diagnoses as obtained in intensive psychiatric and neurological studies of individual children.

TEACH is a resource book of instructional tasks designed to mesh with the SEARCH profile of assets and deficits. These targeted perceptual simulations (TEACH) relate directly to deficits uncovered by SEARCH and verified by a multidisciplinary assessment.

Together they are a powerful pair “The strength of SEARCH & TEACH is in early intervention. This twofold approach offers educators an effective tool for catching learning disorders at the beginning of a child's academic career, before the downward spiral of failure begins. With proper and timely identification and intervention, many children can be spared the lifelong consequences of learning disorders.”
