Learning Disability Testing

A number of children and adolescents struggle to keep up with their peers when it comes to schoolwork. They may have problems with reading, writing, and/or math skills. These issues may have been present since starting school, or may be emerging as schoolwork is targeting areas of weakness. If you wonder whether your child may have a learning disability, early identification through a formal evaluation process is typically the first step. This can help with a formal diagnosis of a learning disability and, more importantly, what types of services, interventions, and/or accommodations may be best suited for your child, to ensure that they perform at their true potential in school. Testing typically includes measures of a child’s intellectual potential and level of academic achievement. Following a consultation to determine whether this may be the appropriate assessment for your child, testing typically involves around 3 hours of testing.
