TLC has offered comprehensive psychological and educational evaluations for children and adults for over 25 years. Utilizing a team approach, we determine the contributing factors to learning difficulties. Our program identifies and helps children, adults, parents, and teachers understand and manage a variety of challenges that affect functioning at home, work, and school due to:
- Learning differences
- Executive functioning or attentional difficulties (such as ADHD)
- Social-emotional difficulties
- Adaptive functioning (independent life skills)
Testing services are by appointment only. Families are asked to come in for an initial intake interview, without their child present; adults who are being evaluated are also asked to come in for this initial intake interview, although it is generally the same day as testing. The interview, which can take between one and one and a half hours, is a discussion of any current problems and concerns, the history of problems, and any specific questions that families would like to be addressed in the evaluation process.
We typically schedule two testing sessions with a licensed psychologist and one testing session with an educational diagnostician, with each testing session lasting between two and three hours. Occasional, doctoral-level externs provide administration for some of our assessments. The total amount of time needed depends upon the problems being assessed and the person’s age. Testing is conducted in a one-on-one environment (not group testing), in which the evaluator strives to help the individual feel comfortable and relaxed such that their best performance is elicited. Approximately four to five weeks after the last day of testing, the psychologist will schedule a meeting with the family/individual to provide a copy of the report, explain all results, discuss recommendations based upon the results, and to respond to any additional questions that may have come up.
Our Comprehensive Assessments include:
- Reading, Math, ADHD, and Autism Screenings ($95/hour)
- In one hour, our team will briefly assess for these concerns and recommend additional testing if necessary.
TLC has a long history of providing comprehensive evaluations designed to fully examine an individual’s intellectual, academic, and information processing skills to gain a more complete understanding of strengths and needs.
Educational Neuropsychological Evaluations
For complex questions, our neuropsychological evaluation connects mental processes with academic functioning to better understand how our foundational skills, cognitive processing, and acquired knowledge impacts learning.
This comprehensive evaluation is designed to thoroughly assess not only the presence of symptoms seen in individuals with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) but also to fully examine processing strengths and weaknesses to provide families with individualized recommendations.
Executive Functioning and Attention Evaluation
Utilizing a battery of tests created to evaluate cognitive, behavioral, and executive functioning concerns, TLC’s team identifies issues related to ADHD such as inattention and impulse control.
This is a comprehensive evaluation for preschool children designed to assess all areas of a child’s development to determine if their development is progressing at an expected rate.
