ADHD & Learning Disability Evaluations

ADHD & Learning Disability Evaluations

Many children, teenagers, and adults struggle with ADHD and learning disabilities. These conditions can occur together and cause difficulties at school and work.

Our comprehensive evaluations will help identify your cognitive and academic strengths and weaknesses.

We work closely with you, your family, and your teachers to provide practical feedback and recommendations for accommodations to help improve your performance in school and at work.

How We Can Help

ADHD and learning disabilities are developmental conditions that you were born with but that does not mean that you have to have struggle in school or work for the rest of your life. Your school and employer might be legally required to provide you with reasonable accommodations if you are diagnosed with ADHD or a learning disability. You might also be eligible for accommodations on standardized tests and licensing examinations.

We specialize in conducting neuropsychological evaluations for ADHD and learning disabilities with teenagers and adults. We use a combination of psychological testing, behavioral observations, and consultations with your teachers and school to provide an accurate diagnosis and recommendations for accommodations and treatment.

Academic accommodations such as extra time, extended breaks, or a private room can help level the playing field and allow you to perform at your true potential.

Accommodations can be provided for the following standardized tests:

What to Expect

Our learning disability and ADHD evaluations typically involve:

  • A comprehensive clinical interview to help us understand important psychological, medical, educational, and social background information as well as your current cognitive and psychological functioning.
  • Review of medical, psychological, and school records that help us have a better understanding of your psychological functioning and academic performance.
  • We will administer psychological and neuropsychological tests to objectively assess for mental health diagnoses, cognitive abilities, and educational achievement. We will administer and interpret paper and computer-based tests to assess for:
    • General intellectual abilities
    • Educational achievement (Reading, writing, spelling, and math abilities)
    • Higher level executive skills such as reasoning and problem solving
    • Attention and concentration
    • Language comprehension and communication
    • Visual-spatial skills and perception
    • Memory impairment
    • Motor and sensory skills
    • Mood and personality
    • Psychological diagnoses
  • After we complete the evaluation, we will write a comprehensive report that integrates our findings and give it to you and your school. We can also send the report directly to any organizations that need the report to provide you with accommodations.
  • We will also conduct a feedback session and go over the results of the testing and our recommendations for treatment.

A neuropsychological evaluation will identify if you have ADHD or a Learning Disability and help you get academic accommodations
