What are the reasons for assessing students?
  • To determine optimal interventions to improve performance.
  • To confirm a diagnosis of learning disability or ADHD
  • To explore other causes of presumed attention deficit disorder
  • To understand the neuropsychological reasons for a student's learning difficulty
  • To determine if academic difficulties are due to cognitive or motivational deficits
  • To explain the declining achievement of a previously successful student
  • To assess the effectiveness of treatments
  • Determine accommodations for learning disability or attention deficit disorder
  • Identify any neurological or psychiatric factors contributing to learning problems
  • Severe emotional/behavioral problems triggered by homework or academic frustration
  • Determine how adjusting for temperament may improve performance
  • Are expectations in line with capacity?
  • Social impairments.
 Will insurance cover?
- Insurance will NOT cover when academic difficulties are the primary concern
 How is this different from a school evaluation?
- More information is generated from a wider and deeper perspective.
- Neurocognitive, behavioral,
temperament, emotional, social and family factors
are weighed and integrated to produce home & school recommendations.
