Specific Learning Disability Assessments
Is your child struggling in school for no apparent reason? Does your child seem to be doing well in one subject such as math but struggle in another such as reading? Your child may have a specific learning disability. I believe that when a learning disability is suspected, an evaluation of neurocognitive abilities is necessary to determine the source of the difficulty as well as the areas of neurocognitive strength that can serve as a foundation for compensatory strategies and treatment options. As a result, my approach focuses on neurocognitive assessment as this type of evaluation provides the basis toward more targeted performance-based assessments of academic achievement, comorbid conditions, and intervention response that lead directly to evidence-based treatment plans. The goal is to help your child to achieve to his potential and not be held back in school and future success in life.
