Comprehensive Evaluations for ADHD, Autism, and Learning Disabilities
JPAC conducts comprehensive psychological and psychoeducational evaluations for attention and learning problems, including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and specific learning disabilities. Evaluations for autism are also provided. Comprehensive evaluations typically involve a thorough diagnostic interview, individualized testing, and a feedback session. Following the evaluation, JPAC will write a detailed report that will be mailed to the client.
During the testing, the client works one-on-one with Dr. Jordan, who personally administers assessments to address the areas of concern. Examples of assessments include tests of intellectual abilities, academic achievement, memory, and learning.
Gifted and Intellectual Testing
Specific schools and giftedness programs may require testing for admission. Giftedness testing involves assessment of intellectual ability only or intellectual ability plus academic achievement. Additional testing to address other concerns may also be included.
Kindergarten/School Readiness Testing
Some families require school readiness evaluations to determine whether their child qualifies for early admission to kindergarten or first grade. Kindergarten / School Readiness Testing may involve assessment of the following domains of functioning:
- Mental ability
- Gross and fine motor skills
- Auditory discrimination
- Visual discrimination
- Social-emotional development
A written report detailing results and recommendations is provided.
Consultations and Follow-up Service
Some clients may wish to meet with a psychologist before deciding whether to schedule a comprehensive evaluation or in order to review results of previous evaluations. JPAC provides consultation services to meet this need.
