Our office offers comprehensive psycho-educational evaluation for students of all ages, to include those needing accommodations for SAT/ACT, college and/or professional licensing boards. It is used to determine learning disabilities and/or strengths and weaknesses in learning style.
Specific Learning Disabilities (also called "dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia") are deficits in any one or more of the following areas: word decoding skills, reading fluency, reading comprehension, math calculation, math fluency, math reasoning, writing fluency, organization of written expression, oral language and listening comprehension because of a cognitive processing deficit. Nonverbal Learning Disorders, Developmental Delays and Autism Spectrum Disorders can also be identified with this type of evaluation.
The evaluation includes a review of records, developmental/social history, questionnaires (completed by family members, teachers and student), clinical interview and sometimes screening for Sensory Processing Disorder. Administration of an IQ test, Achievement and Cognitive Processing testing, along with continuous performance testing, completes the package and can also rule-in or rule-out possible attention issues.
Once the evaluation is complete, a one-hour feedback session will be scheduled to review the results with the individual and/or parents. The purchaser of the service, and/or parents of a minor child, will receive a copy of the report, which will give the results of testing, diagnosis, referral to community resources and educational recommendations. The Educational Recommendations section of the report is a separate document so that students can become familiar with strategies needed for their own success.
