Learning Disability and ADD/ADHD Screenings

Learning disabilities are typically identified when a person’s level of achievement is significantly below what would be expected for her/his age, schooling, and level of intelligence. Screening for learning disabilities is the first step in the evaluation process. It helps determine if formal evaluation, which can be expensive, is needed. The screening process consists of an interview, testing, and recommendations regarding further evaluation. If there is evidence of a learning disability, a referral will be made for a formal evaluation. Only through a formal evaluation can a diagnosis be determined.
