Testing for Learning Disabilities

A comprehensive evaluation is needed when testing for learning disabilities

We determine how a student processes and learns by looking at all major areas of processing:

  • Verbal Abilities
  • Reasoning Abilities
  • Memory
  • Auditory Processing
  • Visual Processing
  • Processing Speed

Each of these areas play a vital role in a student’s ability to learn, retain, and apply new information.

Once we assess how a student processes, we then determine where they fall academically.  

We assess the following academic areas:

  • Basic Reading Skills
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Math Calculations
  • Math Reasoning
  • Written Expression/Spelling
  • Oral Expression
  • Listening Comprehension
  • Phonological Processing
  • Orthographic Abilities

The test information is used to make a diagnosis as well as relevant recommendations for school or work, and home.
