Learning difficulties can significantly affect children and adolescents by creating an environment filled with frustration, anxiety, disappointment and confusion. Our learning services program helps children and adolescents feel happier, be more successful at school and reach their full potential. We also provide services that address the individual needs of all family members and can facilitate dialogue between school staff, parents and other professionals, helping parents advocate for their child’s specific needs within the school environment.
Psycho-Educational Evaluations and Testing: Offers information regarding your child’s general intellect, memory, learning style, academic skills, attention/concentration, language, executive functioning (organization, problem-solving, and planning), visual-spatial abilities, and sensory motor functions. Evaluations are an important first step in establishing Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The psychoeducational evaluation reports also provide information that is helpful in discussions with schools.
Consultation with Teachers, School Administrators and Other Professionals: Provides effective communication among various professionals to ensure a child’s learning needs are being met.
Parent Guidance: Aims to help parents who want to better understand and respond to the unique needs and strengths of their child and promote positive parent-child interactions and eliminate power struggles.
LEARNING SERVICES FOR FAMILIES
“Always keep in mind that the goal is not to make a child succeed in any particular subject or on any particular assignment or test, but to encourage a lifelong love of learning and the ability to enjoy and stick with an intellectual challenge.”
