FROM ASSESSMENT COMES CLARITY, DIRECTION & RESOLUTION
First, we need to identify your child’s current situation. To help accomplish that, we can employ just the right assessment tools and design an evaluation plan tailored to your specific needs and questions about your child. We all have strengths. We all have challenges. We can help your child maximize their strengths and improve and overcome their challenges at home and school.
You will be able to get your questions answered regarding your child’s:
Cognitive skills, including a measure of IQ
Academic skill levels
Unique strengths and weaknesses
Personality profile. In other words: what makes them tick?
Levels of anxiety and/or depression
The presence of ADHD, executive functioning challenges, a learning disability, or something else
Our comprehensive evaluations that investigate the ‘why’ behind the difficulty, rather than simply looking to see if a child checks the boxes for a certain disability
We evaluate for multiple disabilities to reduce the likelihood that something is overlooked
Each family is provided with a thorough report that includes all data collected, the diagnostic impression, an explanation of how the data supports the diagnosis, and recommendations for next steps
Each evaluation concludes with a 1:1 personalized interpretation session to help parents better understand the diagnosis and report
School Accommodations, Disability Evaluations and Special Education
We can help determine if your child might be eligible for special education services or a 504 Accommodation Plan
We will be able to identify what evidence-based interventions may be most effective for your child based on their learning profile
Does your child need accommodations? Might they qualify for testing accommodations, such as extra-time on the ACT? SAT? GRE?
