Learning disabilities are neurologically-based processing problems. These processing problems can interfere with learning basic skills such as reading, writing and/or math. They can also interfere with higher level skills such as organization, time planning, abstract reasoning, long or short term memory and attention. It is important to realize that learning disabilities can affect an individual’s life beyond academics and can impact relationships with family, friends and in the workplace.
Psycho-educational Testing can clarify the reasons why school or the workplace have been such a challenge for you, your partner, or your child. By evaluating and documenting particular areas of functioning or disability for school or employment settings, psycho-educational testing is useful in both in the development of intervention plans, and in establishing eligibility for services, accommodations, and benefits.
