For our adult clients, many may be experiencing chronic difficulties with meeting job expectations, organizing tasks, completing household chores, engaging in daily living activities, remembering obligations, and forming/maintaining healthy relationships. Often adult clients come to us with prior diagnoses of mood, anxiety, or personality problems, and are frustrated that previous treatments have been unsuccessful in helping them meet their goals. Through assessment, we can determine whether there may be evidence for a missed ADHD or Autism diagnosis that accounts for pervasive lifelong problems. We use evidence-based methodologies to examine relevant cognitive processes, behaviors, and social/emotional symptoms tailored to how neurodevelopmental disorders present in adults.
For children and teens, psychoeducational evaluations can be helpful tools for success. School can be a very frustrating place for individuals with learning issues. Often, they feel like there is a mismatch between the effort they put into their schoolwork and the grades and feedback they receive. Our psychoeducational evaluations are designed to give students, parents, and teachers a blueprint to how these individuals can learn most effectively. Through the assessment process we identify a person’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses to explain how these underlie their academic abilities. We provide an exhaustive set of practical and evidence-based recommendations to help you or your child going forward.
These reports can serve as documentation that you or your child needs specific accommodations to ensure that they have equal access to demonstrate their knowledge on structured examinations. Recommendations may consist of accommodations for standardized testing, suggestions for school placement, recommendations for teachers and tutors within and outside of the classroom, as well as specific suggestions for individual and family treatment.
