Our initial, holistic evaluation for learning disorders determines the input or processing systems that are not functioning well enough to allow successful learning. Using parent report materials and nationally accepted, standardized testing, the evaluator analyzes the following:
- Auditory and visual processing functions,
- Attention and focus skills,
- Overall processing speed,
- Dyslexia and dysgraphia,
- Academic ability,
- Rapid cognitive fluency/Working memory,
- and the brain’s ability to coordinate and recall information.
- This evaluation is modified based on the individual’s needs.
The goal of the evaluation is to determine the reasons the individual is not performing at their fullest potential. The typical person we help is an individual who has an average IQ or higher, one who is working overly hard at school, who can’t always stay focused and who is becoming more and more discouraged or anxious.
