Mindprint Learning Profiles

Have you ever wanted to know where your child’s strengths and weaknesses are in how they learn?

Standardized testing in schools do not typically test all aspects of a processing problems and cater to those strengths.  My 8 year old son was placed school a year early when entering kindergarten and had seemed to excel at many things through the years, but I was curious to know what things I could do to enhance his learning and help him hone in on potential weaknesses he might have.  Paying attention to a child’s education early on and playing an active role in their learning can further their understanding and create a more cohesive environment for them in their future endeavors.



My son attends a charter school and I was curious to find out what they considered “gifted” compared to just an ordinary on track student; his school teaches a year ahead in curriculum as compared to typical public schools, as well.  The testing that was completed my son at the school did not provide a detailed explanation on his strengths and weaknesses, nor where to better help him succeed.

Mindprint utilizes a series of exercises that grab your child’s attention and tests them based on their cognitive skills, based on their grade and age.  The series of tests takes approximately an hour;  I would recommend having your child do the assessment when they are alert and not distracted by outside influences.

From Mindprint Learning:
The Mindprint Assessment was developed by physicians and researchers in the Brain Behavior Laboratory at the Perelman School of  Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Known as the “Penn Computerized Neurocognitive Battery” (CNB) in the scientific literature, it is a series of computerized tests that measure accuracy and speed of performance in major domains of cognition. It has been tested in over 100,000 participants worldwide including more than 10,000 children, 50,000 members of the armed services and NASA astronauts. The test is considered to be valid and reliable and has been normed by age. You can be confident that if you administer the test according to our instructions, you will have an appropriate understanding of your child’s cognitive strengths and needs relative to same-aged peers.

Upon completing the Assessment, you will receive a link to an easy-to-understand detailed report called the Unique Learning Profile. The Unique Learning Profile is a multi-page evaluation of the child’s competencies across ten core cognitive skills: visual motor speed, processing speed, attention, working memory, flexible thinking, abstract reasoning, verbal reasoning, spatial perception, verbal memory and visual memory. It includes detailed explanations of the child’s performance on each skill. The Unique Learning Profile will provide specific and effective learning strategies targeted based on the child’s learning profile. Children prefer learning in ways that align with specific strengths and accommodate their needs. If you are a parent, we hope you decide to share the results of the Assessment with tutors, teachers, or others who are involved in your child’s education, as it should enable them to be more effective in helping your child succeed.

I would recommend this service especially for people that may home school their children to better cater your lesson plans to the learning of your child and to also work on perceived weaknesses that are pointed out within the profile.  The profile given is very lengthy and in-depth and will give you a large insight as to what was tested, how it was tested, and where your child compares to other children in their testing pool.
