Learning Disorder, ADHD, Giftedness, and Autism Evaluations
Comprehensive Neuropsychological and Psychoeducational Testing
At San Diego BrainWorks we provide comprehensive evaluations assessing Learning Disorders, ADHD, Autism, Giftedness, and Emotional Disorders.
Our evaluation approach also includes assessing potential underlying psychological issues that are also impacting performance. We assess the whole child in order to target specific treatment recommendations based on the child's needs - academic, cognitive, social, and emotional.
We work collaboratively with our families so that your child gets the help she/he needs. We provide targeted and specific treatment recommendations for academic, social, behavioral, and emotional success. We also help families with the IEP process and 504 plans by providing consultation and expert educational advocacy.
When to consider testing?
When there is a suspected learning disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or social/emotional concerns that interferes with academic success.
When parents, teachers, and professionals are trying to differentiate between a learning disability, ADHD, Autism, Giftedness and/or emotional concerns.
When parents, counselors, or teachers have realized that your child learns differently or that they have social concerns and something is impacting their ability to perform and function in school.
Following the onset of academic issues such as poor performance in specific areas or subjects, difficulty remembering what he or she has studied, poor time management and organization, poor attention in class, low motivation for school, or daydreaming in class and not completing assignments.
