Diagnostic Learning Services offers specific evaluations to assess for dyslexia and learning disabilities. In addition, we will use the assessment information to makes relevant recommendations for both school and home.
Our assessments typically take anywhere from 3-4 hours depending on the age and the pace of the student. Before the appointment, we request completion of an online student information form. This provides: Some background information prior to the appointment so that the most appropriate instruments can be chosen. This also helps the diagnostician understand specific areas of concern and a little bit about the student's interests and personality. We offer a consultation with the family to review the assessment results usually within 7-10 days of the evaluation. The family should leave the consultation meeting with a solid understanding of the testing results and what the plan of action is moving forward. We also offer meetings with school staff to assist in understanding the student's needs and the implementation of our recommendations.
