Integrated Learning Solutions (ILS) partners with eleven schools who are members of the Pasadena Area Independent Schools Consortium (PAIS) to assist them with screening kindergarten applicants. ILS has worked closely with the administration, admissions directors and Kindergarten teachers at each school in order to gain a solid understanding of their assessment goals, allowing ILS to provide their applicants with a school readiness screening. These schools have agreed to share the results of our carefully designed developmental screening in the hope of relieving some of the stress and repetition for the children by coordinating this portion of the admissions process.  We make every effort to ensure that the screening experience will be positive and enjoyable for every child and that the application process will be streamlined. During the screening, each child will be asked to participate in a number of developmental tasks, enabling our experienced staff to observe the child's language and reasoning skills, motor skills, visual and auditory processing skills. The screening will be individually administered by ILS personnel and will take approximately twenty-five to thirty minutes. Currently, the following independent schools screen their kindergarten applicants through ILS:
