Reading is the primary way students access information. In the early elementary grades, it's about learning to read. As kids get older, then it's reading to learn. Getting to the bottom of a reading problem is the first step.
Writing is a critical way that students share their knowledge and thinking, especially in middle school and beyond. Because writing involves so many mental abilities, an in-depth assessment is usually needed to determine what's behind a writing issue.
Math is a source of frustration for many students. Many kids equate not doing well in math with not being smart. Fortunately, it is possible to determine the root cause of a math struggle, which paves the way to getting the right kind of support.
About 1 in 10 students has ADHD. It can take the form of short focus span, superficial concentration, impulsivity, disorganization, or some combination of these. A neurodevelopmental assessment not only determines the presence of ADHD, it thoroughly describes it and generates an effect plan of action. In addition, people diagnosed with ADHD need to understand how it affects them, even at a young age.
