Diagnoses, Tests for Learning Disabilities and ADD/ADHD

Dr. Anderson is specializes in aiding families with children who are needlessly struggling in school due to undiagnosed learning disabilities or attention problems that are not always obvious to teachers or parents. Sometimes these children perform well in certain school subjects, but do poorly in others, which may result in attention or learning challenges remaining undiagnosed. In other instances, educators may be reaching out to parents to suggest that psychological testing may be a valuable tool in identifying and addressing academic and/or behavior issues observed at school.

Upon completion of diagnostic testing, Dr. Anderson offers tangible suggestions for helping children develop coping strategies and potential school accommodations.

Testing also is available for adults who believe they are struggling with attention deficit issues.
