Fee Reduction Policy for Individual Cognitive Assessments

It may be possible for your child to receive a fee reduction for an individual cognitive assessment (typically WISC-V) if you meet both of the following criteria:

  1. You are seeking admission to the Fairfax County Public School's Advanced Academic Program for your child, aged seven or above;
  2. Your family qualifies for the federal Free/Reduced Price Lunch program. Acceptable documentation is a copy of your eligibility letter from your child's local school.

A qualified child may receive one cognitive assessment, per year, at the reduced fee. Please inquire when making your appointment.

At this time, we are unable to provide fee reductions to parents who are seeking assessments for entry to private schools or for other assessments (such as achievement testing). If you are applying to a private school, you may wish to contact the private school's admission department to inquire about financial assistance or admission requirement waivers.
