Learning Disability Assessments
It may be what keeps you up at night.
You're wondering why your child is struggling.
You may have any number of other thoughts...
...If you've done something wrong.
...If you should have been more involved even though everyone kept saying your child was "fine".
...If you should have pushed homework harder.
It's unlikely any of these are actually the case, but it all comes back to not knowing.
Do any of these sound familiar?
You've tried reaching out to the school, and you still have questions -
Your child's teacher told you that everything was "fine" but you have a nagging feeling that it's not.
You've been told that your concerns are not something the school is able to discuss.
You know something isn't quite right...schoolwork is taking so much longer than it should and you know your child is incredibly bright - you see evidence of his or her brilliance all the time.
A diagnostic evaluation can answer your questions once and for all and set you in the right direction.
An evaluation helps you gain insight into your child's academic strengths and weaknesses.
This pattern of scores will determine what type of intervention or support will be most effective so you can help your child capitalize on the strengths to overcome the weaknesses.
An evaluation will help make sense of your child's educational struggles and create a game plan on how to move forward.
You will learn if a specific learning disability is impacting your child's academic growth which will allow your child to qualify for services from the school or other programs.
An evaluation will help normalize your child's frustration and struggle and give a name to what he or she already knows to be true. It helps your child understand that he or she is not alone and nothing is "wrong".
Everything you need to get the answers you're searching for -
An evaluation includes:
Direct one-on-one testing with an Educational Diagnostician. This isn't a computerized assessment. We work directly with your child on a number of different skills in an engaging and conversational format.
A comprehensive written report with individualized recommendations specific to your child's needs.
A follow-up feedback session to discuss how to maximize your child's strengths and put supports in place to address weaknesses.
Ongoing information and support from our team, whenever you may need it.
How Does It Work?
Call us or email us and let us know about your concerns so we can help determine the best approach for your child's evaluation. We offer several options for testing based on your specific needs.
We will send you an electronic questionnaire to gather more information about your child. We ask that you complete the paperwork before your session.
You and your child will come into the office where your child will complete the one-on-one testing session. The appointment typically takes between 2 and 4 hours.
You will receive a comprehensive evaluation report outlining relevant background information, testing results, and recommendations before you come in for the parent feedback session where we will discuss results and next steps.
So your child is getting an evaluation. But what you're really getting is...
- The ability to sleep better at night because you have answers. You know the root cause of your child's learning struggle and have a game plan for how to move forward.
- The opportunity to help your child begin to understand his or her struggle and move forward. We all have mountains to climb, identifying the mountain is the first step toward progress.
- Concrete data to help you and your child's school understand how he or she learns best.
We know it can be scary to make such a significant investment
You might be thinking:
"What if nothing is wrong and I'm making mountains out of molehills?"
"What if my child just needs more time and it will all click eventually?"
You're here because you are concerned.
Your intuition rarely leads you astray.
Not knowing your child's academic profile results in lost time which significantly impacts the future trajectory for your child.
Plus... how many sleepless nights have you lost worrying about this?..
We promise you'll sleep better knowing.

Need help from the school?
Evaluations can be a great starting point as they can help us to understand the academic strengths and struggles that are specific to your child.
We will graph your child's test scores and use that graph to determine what accommodations, modifications, or supports will be most helpful at school.
We truly believe in forming a collaborative relationship with your child's school in order to get your child what he or she needs.
