For all grade-level assessments, we conduct differential diagnosis and offer written recommendations about school placement and accommodations as well as ways to work with your child or teen at home to maximize his or her success. For college-level assessments, we include in our reports recommendations aimed at maximizing the student's success. As needed, we can also provide IEP/504 Plan support, including attending school meetings.


Assessment Procedure:  Assessments typically consist of an intake appointment, during which we will decide what testing is needed and agree on a price, a testing session, and a feedback session. Depending on your needs, testing can be divided into multiple sessions.
