learning disability testing

We perform Learning Disability testing at the Behavioral Health Clinic.  A learning disability is determined when a person has a learning function (such as reading and math) that is significantly below average compared to the general population.  A learning disability, learning disorder, or learning difficulty is characterized by difficulties comprehending or processing information and can be caused by several different factors.  An assessment can assist in creating learning plans at school.

Learning disability evaluations administered at Behavioral Health Clinic: 

  • Comprehensive Reading and Math Assessments
  • Examinations of the Underlying Cognitive Processes
  • Phonological Processing Assessments
  • Memory Function Assessments 
  • Processing Speed Assessments

A learning disability evaluation often consists of: 

  1. An overall intelligence battery, including tests like the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-V (WISC-V) or the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Adults (WAIS-IV)
  2. Achievement tests which measure underlying cognitive problems, such as the Woodcock-Johnson Battery – IV (WJ-IV)
