Assessment

ADHD, Learning Disorders, Emotional Concerns, and many more

Overview

There are many reasons parents seek testing for their children. School may no longer be enjoyable for your child as they struggle to keep up with the work. Your child may be getting in trouble in school and you’re not sure if it’s due to a learning disability or difficulty paying attention. Maybe you’re wondering whether your child is gifted and is not being challenged enough. You’ve noticed your child is not doing well on tests and they have expressed that they are feeling nervous while at school. The list extends beyond these examples. 

Here at Integrated Behavioral Health, we offer brief and comprehensive assessments for a variety of concerns including dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD, gifted, executive functioning, as well as mood concerns.

The process for testing is similar although the specific tests vary from child to child.
Intake: Each evaluation begins with a thorough parent interview to better understand the specific needs of your child.
Child Testing: Testing usually occurs over 2 half days or 1 full day depending on the depth of testing needed.
Additional Measures Gathered: Clinical questionnaires will be completed by parents and teachers to better understand concerns across the home and school setting.
Parent Feedback: Feedback on the results of the testing as well as possible diagnoses will be provided during a parent only feedback session.
Comprehensive Report: A report will be given to you that outlines all of the information collected, diagnoses, as well as treatment recommendations for home and school. This report can be shared with your child's school and other relevant individuals (e.g., pediatrician).

Please schedule a 15-minute consultation or call us at 720-856-0400 to discuss whether testing would be appropriate for your child.

Types of Assessment

Testing for a learning disability is a complex process as there are many factors that could be impacting a child's success at school. Depending on your child's specific concerns, testing could include a wide range of assessments including cognitive testing (IQ), academic achievement, reading skills, math skills, executive functioning, parent and teacher questionnaires, and classroom observation.
Here at Integrated Behavioral Health we offer both brief and more comprehensive testing for ADHD. Brief testing includes a thorough parent and child interview and parent and teacher questionnaires of attention and executive functioning. A more comprehensive assessment includes cognitive testing (IQ), academic achievement, and assessment of areas of learning that are of particular concern (e.g., reading) in addition to the assessments included in the brief format.
Many schools require cognitive testing (IQ) for admission to their school or maybe you are wanting your child to stay at the same school but receive an enhanced curriculum. Here at Integrated Behavioral Health, we complete school entry and gifted evaluations. Different schools have different entry requirements. For instance, some schools only require a cognitive test (IQ); whereas, other schools require cognitive testing as well as a standardized test of academic achievement. Your specific needs will be discussed and accommodated.
