Our team combines the expertise of psychologists, speech-language pathologists,
occupational therapists, physical therapists, and educational specialists
to comprehensively evaluate and diagnose a wide range of developmental disorders.
- ADHD Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
- ASD Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Learning Disabilities: Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia
- Mental Health Disorders: Anxiety, Depression
Broad in nature, this tool allows psychologists to evaluate functioning across a number of domains including:
- General cognitive skills + intellectual functioning
- Academic functioning
- Oral language skills, reading, writing, spelling, math
- Social, emotional + behavioral functioning
Various processing skills are also evaluated depending on areas of concern and reason for referral. Often recommended when the source of a student’s academic difficulty is unknown or appears multi-faceted, it is sufficient to identify a wide range of common learning disturbances [ADHD, dyslexia, and emotional and behavioral concerns].
Dyslexia + ADHD Specific Diagnostic Evaluations
In some circumstances, concerns related to a student’s functioning are specific in nature and a more targeted diagnostic evaluation may be appropriate. As the name suggests, Dyslexia and ADHD Specific Diagnostic Evaluations look more narrowly at the diagnosis of a reading disability or ADHD.
These evaluations are conducted through use of a specialized battery of instruments designed to thoroughly investigate symptoms and behaviors characteristic of ASD. In conjunction with evaluations of intellectual functioning and adaptive skills, our multi-disciplinary team [Psychologist, OT, PT, SLP] utilizes these diagnostic tools:
- Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2)
- Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R)
- Social Responsiveness Scale, Second Edition (SRS-2)
- Childhood Autism Rating Scale, Second Edition (CARS- 2)
