Reassessment summary by psychologist

“[He] has made very good progress in all areas tested.  He has sustained his excellent oral language skills.  His listening accuracy tested 6 years above the level of testing done 2 years ago. "[He] is now reading accurately at a level almost commensurate with his chronological age.  He reads with understanding at a level over 2 years above his chronological age.  His spelling has improved to a level just below his chronological age.  Although he is now reading accurately and spelling accurately within an average range for year 7, his reading accuracy and spelling accuracy still reflect dyslexic characteristics.  His written language does not yet reflect either his chronological age or his intellectual potential.  [He] has sustained his excellent level of oral mathematics.”
