What types of testing/strategies are available for students with Autism, and Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NVLD)?

A Psychoeducational Evaluation and Autism/Asperger rating scales are completed to identify traits of Autism, Asperger, and Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NVLD). A Psychoeducational Evaluation assesses the following areas:

  • Social skill competence and awareness
  • Cognitive/Intelligence
  • Auditory and visual processing
  • Visual–motor integration
  • Fine/gross motor processing
  • Academic achievement in reading, writing, mathematics, problem solving, science, social studies, humanities
  • Speech
  • Expressive and receptive language

The evaluation will provide information on how the student thinks, reasons, and learns. It will identify strengths and weaknesses in processing, as well as academics and grade level. A conference will be held with the family and/or the student. Individual strategies based on the student’s strengths and weaknesses are developed and presented at the conference. In addition, a program of personalized instruction is presented addressing the needs of the student.

Private Psychoeducational Evaluations are available.  Please contact us if you wish to schedule a consultation.
