Virtual Learning Disabilities and Dyslexia Testing For Colorado Schools

Dyslexia or Learning Disabilities testing explains exactly why a child/teen/young adult is underperforming—and exactly how to teach to his/her strengths. Results include:  a. recommendations for parenting changes b.  detailed accommodations for the  504 and IEP  c.  therapies and or medications recommended.  These are made in a no-nonsense meeting with the parents (teens and young adults included in this meeting).  Older children through young adults are taught how to study based on their brain’s strengths.

 

Overview of Symptoms

  1. Slow reading rate and fluency
  2.  Perceiving words as similar words e.g. state for status
  3. Difficulty with the reading comprehension piece forcing multiple rereads
  4. Weak vocabulary and spelling even after re-learning
  5. Dislike of reading yet better listening skills
  6. Early Symptoms e.g. age 6  a) poor rhyming  b) struggles learning letter-sounds or Phonics  c)  Reversals and transpositions past age 7
  7.   You are a “Word Reader” meaning that you read words but do not connect to the meaning

 

As a child moves into Middle and High School, separate comprehension problems can emerge. These students may not be able to discern the “main idea.” Many of them keep reading and hope the main idea somehow clicks. In mathematics, they can study but not be able to transfer the information to tests problems that are slightly different than those studied.

The Impact of Test results:

Psychologists can very clearly fulfill a role that the school simply cannot. Psychologists can help students and parents understand the child’s potential (IQ) and how it meets with their current performance (achievement tests).  Using processing tests available, the psychologist can then communicate an understanding of the child’s deficits as well as strengths.  Besides phonics deficits, the psychologist could identify deficits in inductive or deductive reasoning, visual processing, memory and comprehension. The psychologist then sets a plan using tutoring, accommodations and other therapies…which will then be incorporated into a college learning plan, a high school IEP. or high stakes tests accommodations
