Evaluation Reports

Please submit your child’s most recent speech-language evaluation (must have been completed within the past year) and related reports (occupational therapy evaluations, developmental pediatrician reports, psychological testing).

Teacher Questionnaire Form

In addition to the application, a Teacher Questionnaire Form is required for those children who are currently enrolled in a preschool or childcare program.

Joint Admission Testing Program

If you have JATP testing, please submit results for kindergarten application. It is not required for admissions.

Psycho-Educational Evaluation

A psycho-educational evaluation is required for applicants to our Transitional Kindergarten

In-House Group Observation/Individual Observation

Once we receive and review your application, you may be contacted by the Preschool Office and scheduled for an individual and group observation session. These sessions provide an opportunity for us to meet each applicant individually and in a group setting. There is a nonrefundable $145 fee assessed on the day of the observation. The observation typically lasts approximately 30-60 minutes. The observation is informal and every effort will be made to help your child feel comfortable. The purpose of the observation is to help the admissions committee make appropriate recommendations for your child.


Atlanta Speech School programs all have access to individual remediation specialists, speech-language pathologists, reading specialists, occupational therapists and learning specialists and school psychologists. Programs are not designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who have social-pragmatic language disorders, or significant attention/behavioral regulation weaknesses that may prevent the child from accessing the curriculum.
