    Frequently Asked Questions

    The goal of all assessments is to provide the student, their family members, and other professionals (teachers, pediatricians and counselors) with a better understanding of the student’s functioning, skills and abilities, and recommendations to support growth and improvement in areas of need.  In some cases a clinical diagnosis is rendered.  In all instances clients and their families are provided with a better sense of the student’s strengths and challenges and suggestions and strategies to improve academic, emotional and/or behavioral functioning.

    Common referral questions include the following:

    • Does my child have a clinically significant attention problem?
    • Why is my child or adolescent starting or continuing to struggle in school?
    • Is my child experiencing emotional issues, such as depression or anxiety, that are impacting academic or social functioning?
    • Does my child have a learning disability, such as dyslexia, or other neurodevelopmental disorder?
    • Is my child gifted and learning disabled (twice exceptional)?

    Dr. Anne’s assessments are tailored to the concerns of the individual. These evaluations may be termed psychological, psychoeducational, or neurocognitive, depending on the referral question and scope of the evaluation. Areas of functioning which may be assessed or screened include:

    • Cognitive/intellectual development
    • Academic skill development (reading, math, written language)
    • Phonological processing
    • Orthographic ability
    • Receptive and expressive language
    • Visual-perceptual ability
    • Visual-motor integration/fine motor development
    • Attention
    • Memory
    • Executive functioning
    • Emotional/behavioral functioning

    The typical evaluation consists of the following steps:

    1. Initial appointment:  This appointment is 90 minutes and includes the client and parents or guardians. No formal testing is conducted at this time. Personal and family history, areas of concern and strengths, and reviews of previous assessments are conducted. The session is typically divided into time together with parent(s) and client and some individual time with parent(s) and client.
    2. Two or three assessment appointments:  These appointments range from 1 to 3 hours each.  All testing is conducted by Dr. Anne.  Children under 13 years of age must have a guardian stay at the office during this time, although they are not present for the testing. Parents are asked to bring snacks along, as children take one or more breaks during these sessions.
    3. Feedback appointment: Approximately one hour.  This appointment is scheduled approximately two weeks after the final testing session. All diagnostic impressions and comprehensive recommendations are discussed with the family. The full report may be provided then or sent several weeks following the feedback.  High school students are provided with a short summary of the evaluation and recommendations. Students in middle and high school are included in part of the feedback appointment.  When students are present for feedback some time is also spent with parents without the student.  Elementary school children generally do not attend the feedback session.
