The George Mason University Early Childhood Center is a subdivision of the George Mason University Cognitive Assessment Program. Our goal is to provide high quality developmental screenings, assessments, and interventions for young children and their families. Our examiners are highly trained and closely supervised graduate students from George Mason University's Clinical and School Psychology Masters and Doctoral level programs. GMU's Early Childhood Center is committed to providing assessment and intervention services that adhere to empirically-based "best practices" from the fields of psychology, child development, and education.
Our Kindergarten readiness screening will provide parents and teachers with information regarding a child's current level of pre-academic, fine motor, and social development. Such information may be helpful for parents who are trying to make educational placement decisions for the upcoming year. This information may be particularly helpful for a child whose birthday falls close to the Kindergarten "cut off" date (currently September 30th for Fairfax County Public Schools).
