Many children flourish socially, emotionally and academically at school, but not all children enjoy a positive learning experience.
We provide comprehensive assessments of learning difficulties and cognitive skills to accurately identify any underlying problems your child or teen may be experiencing with learning.
Psychologists involved in the identification and diagnosis of specific learning disorders are highly trained in current diagnostic techniques and assessment procedures.
Additional testing for academic and cognitive giftedness is also available with recommendations offered for extending and supporting the needs of gifted and talented students.
What to expect from your first appointment.
An initial consultation provides an opportunity for you to discuss your concerns and provide relevant background information. Next, a formal cognitive assessment is conducted to identify learning strengths and weaknesses.
The report you receive following testing provides a clear learning plan and series of recommendations to support your school age child.
What to bring to your appointment:
- A copy of your referral (if you have one)
- A list of current medications
- Reading glasses and hearing aids if applicable
- Copies of medical documentation, school reports, psychological or psychiatric reports
- Reports from any previous cognitive assessments
