Everyone learns differently. Finding out how you or your child learns and what makes learning difficult is the first step in developing an individualized accommodation plan for school, college and professional success.
Your diagnostic evaluation for learning disablities and the accommodations to help you in the classroom will be built into a school report. This report will help you and your family know your rights under Federal legislation such as P.L. 108-446, Individuals with Disabilities Eduction Act (IDEA) or P.L. 110-325, Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA). This will enable you or your child to get the school and testing accommodations that are your right. Remember, the law states that “all children with disabilities who are in need of special education services be identified, located, and evaluated.”
Your assessment is individually designed and typically will include a comprehensive interview, a review of your academic and medical records, and a full psycho-educational assessment which will look at intellectual, cognitive, academic and perceptual development. Emotional issues are also assessed, as often these are a result of previously undetected and unaddressed learning issues.
Our testing meets the full requirements of ETS (Educational Testing Service) which is the standard by which schools and professional boards measure requests for accommodations.
