Learning Disabilities & Dyslexia
When you or your child are not performing up to your potential at work or school, you may be struggling with a learning disability. In other words, you may learn differently. It’s not about whether or not you’re smart – lots of very bright and successful people have struggled with learning disabilities (Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Tommy Hilfiger, Charles Schwab, Patrick Dempsey, and Whoopi Goldberg, to name a few).
Learning disabilities manifest themselves in various ways:
- problems with reading (dyslexia), writing (dysgraphia) or math (dyscalculia)
- difficulty remembering information
- problems with organization and reasoning
- physical coordination issues
- problems with social relationships
Learning disabilities occur in at least 5% of the population, and reading problems (dyslexia) are the most common.
Our LD assessments will provide:
- Pinpointed origins and diagnoses of the person’s learning struggles with effectively planned interventions.
- A better understanding of the following: intellectual functioning; academic achievement in reading, writing, and math; language; problem solving and executive functions; memory and learning; attention; motor skills; and personality assessment.
- Identification of how an individual best learns information, his/her favored learning style, and how to most effectively assist the client in a learning situation.
- An individualized academic plan (for those in school), created by our psychologists, to help the student reach his/her full potential.
- Personalized implementation of the academic plan with our psychologists.
We are on the cutting edge with the latest developments in the field, including Response To Intervention (RTI) and effective remediation techniques.
