I provide psychoeducational testing, which evaluates children, adolescents, and adults for learning disabilities. These evaluations give a comprehensive view of intellectual ability (IQ), attention, visual-spatial abilities, information processing, and learning (reading, written expression, and mathematics) in order to determine intellectual and academic strengths and weaknesses.
Testing for learning disorders is helpful to provide the earliest possible intervention for any weaknesses and to tailor appropriate recommendations to you or your child. The results of these evaluations can be used at school, work, or to obtain appropriate accommodations or modifications for standardized tests such the SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, GMAT or AP exams.
Common accommodations and modifications for learning disorders include extended time on tests and exams (including the SAT, ACT, GRE, and MCAT) or work assignments, testing in a small group setting, use of graph paper on tests and exams (including standardized tests), use of assistive technology (such as a laptop, “smart pen,” or calculator), and modified school or work schedules.
