We specialize in providing educational evaluations dealing with school learning and behavior issues. We have a high success rate, because our assessments pinpoint the areas of weakness and make the appropriate recommendations.
Success in school involves being able to complete work, stay organized, get along with kids and adults, be positive about your own abilities and school, follow rules, and do your best work. But some kids with learning disabilities (LD) and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) also may develop behavior problems that add to the risk of failure. Here are a few warning signs that your child may need an evaluation:
- Your child has trouble following directions or getting along with other kids.
- She's discouraged or says she "hates school."
- She's frequently "in trouble" in school or sent to the principa's office.
- None of the usual techniques - rewards, consequences, home-school communication, behavior contracts - seem to help .
Even if your child has already been tested at the school and found to not have any learning problems, if your child continues to dread reading out loud, writing an essay, or tackling a math problem an independent educational evaluation (IEE) could make the difference between school success and school failure.
Independent Educational Evaluations (IEE)
Developmental and Psycho-educational Evaluations
For young children with developmental delays or school-age students who are academically frustrated, we offer assessments of learning potential, strengths, weaknesses and learning style. This would include testing for potential learning disabilities, behavioral challenges, developmental disorders such as Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and giftedness which may be impacting school performance. Specific areas of assessment may include intellectual assessment, pre-academic and academic evaluation, assessment of auditory and visual perceptual skills, fine motor assessment, social/emotional/adaptive assessment, and behavioral analysis.
As an outcome of an evaluation, we provide individualized recommendations and accommodations tailor-made to your student’s learning and interaction styles to assist you in making the most informed decisions regarding your child’s education. We also offer on-site tutoring to address academic delays to help your child gain the confidence he/she needs to be successful in his/her school program.
We provide the following IEE assessments:
- Learning Disabilities
- Reading/ Dyslexia
- Written expression
- Social Emotional Functioning
- Gifted and Talented Assessment
- Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE)
- Psycho-Educational Evaluation
- Cognitive / IQ Testing
- Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)
While every child has trouble with classwork and homework from time to time, if a certain area of learning is consistently problematic, you child your child would benefit from being assessed for learning or behavior issues that he or she may be experiencing. Many children who have an undiagnosed learning disability, often present with attention and focusing issues. By understanding all you can about the learning or behavior issues you child may be experiencing, you can ensure your child gets the right help to overcome classroom challenges to succeed in school.
Most children with a learning disability have normal intelligence and therefore expected to meet the school's expectations. In addition, children with attention or behavior issues maybe be showing signs of having a hidden learning disability or maybe even gifted but bored in school.
