Summit psychologists specialize in working with school-aged children with experience in clinical and educational settings. Our comprehensive neuroeducational evaluations include individualized diagnostic assessments to address specific areas of concern for families. We aim to help families identify their child’s areas of strength as well as individual needs.
Based on the information discovered about your child using targeted assessments, we develop an Individual Support Plan that provides recommendations and possible interventions to help develop skills that work towards gaining independence at home and at school. Our comprehensive reports can help facilitate positive, meaningful conversations about how to best support your child in the community and educational settings.
We specialize in evaluating, diagnosing and supporting:
– Gifted Evaluations
– Suspected Developmental Delays/Intellectual Disabilities
Our multidisciplinary team provides both traditional in-clinic and remote online evaluations.
If your child is struggling in school, the first step to finding help is figuring out what is getting in their way. Our team of specialists approach all Specific Learning Disability (SLD) evaluations from a neurodevelopmental perspective utilizing individual profiles of strengths and areas of weakness. Families pursue SLD evaluations at Summit because of our expertise in educational settings and our ability to help them navigate a complex system for support. Evaluations include aspects of cognition, academic achievement, and executive functioning. Whether a child meets criteria for a disability or not, families gain meaningful information specific to their child’s learning profile and related needs. Our reports always include individualized suggestions and recommendations for appropriate supports and accommodations to promote learning success.
– Reading (Dyslexia)
Independent Educational Evaluations
If you, as a parent of a child with a disability, do not agree with the results of the individualized evaluation of your child, as conducted by the school system, you have the right to obtain an Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE). This means that you may ask that a professional, qualified evaluator who is not employed by the school system complete another evaluation of your child.
Summit psychologists are uniquely qualified to provide Independent Educational Evaluations for families and school districts. They have extensive experience with special education processes, knowledge of educational law, academic challenges, social and emotional needs, and numerous other areas that impact a student at school. When completing an IEE, Summit psychologists prioritize idenitifying a student’s needs with the goal of helping schools and families continue to work together for the success of the student.
