Psychological Assessment and Speech-Language Evaluations

The Wright Psychology and Learning Center specializes in the assessment of Reading and Math Disorders such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia, Disorder of Written Expression (Dysgraphia), as well as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluations.  The Psycho-educational and Psychological evaluation process is complex and requires a comprehensive approach.  That is why we take the time necessary to get to know each individual child and his or  her family, their specific concerns related to learning and behavior, and the child’s educational, psychological and medical history before conducting a thorough and comprehensive psychological evaluation.  Each child receives an individualized assessment battery based upon his or her specific needs.  This comprehensive assessment forms the cornerstone of our Psychological Assessments, and provides sufficient documentation to begin the special education process (Individualized Education Plan/IEP and 504 Plans) within the school systems.

A typical approach to evaluation includes:
1. A parents-only interview
2. A child interview/play session
3. A school observation (optional – not covered by insurance)
4. One to two testing sessions (depending upon child’s age and the specific academic concerns being evaluated)
5. A parents-only feedback session with a written report provided within 2-3 weeks following the feedback (in many cases a written report is completed by the time of the feedback session, but this cannot be guaranteed).
