If you need a Learning Disability evaluation completed you have come to the right place. At Mountain Vista Psychology, we complete Learning Disability testing for children, teens, and adults. We ensure a thorough Learning Disability evaluation is completed so you understand strengths and areas of needed support. We use gold standard tests recognized by K-12 schools, colleges, and standardized testing boards (i.e., ACT, SAT, etc.). After Learning Disability testing is complete we write a report and have an in-person feedback session with you to go over test results. We will answer questions and discuss recommendations going forward. It is our intention that after completing an evaluation you have a greater sense of understanding. We want you to feel empowered to take the next steps to improve life.
Here is a brief overview of our Learning Disability testing services:
Interview: During the interview we gain background information. Through this process we get an understanding of strengths and areas of struggle. We assess for co-existing difficulties so we can get a full understand of what to recommend to you going forward.
WISC-V IQ/WAIS-IV IQ: This testing looks at the ability to learn new information visually and verbally. Working memory and processing speed are also tested.
Woodcock Johnson-IV: Academic testing measures reading, writing, and math skills.
Extra testing: If your primary concern is reading, we may recommend one or both of the following:
The Gray Oral Reading Tests-Fifth Edition (GORT-5): The GORT-5 is one of the most widely used measures of oral reading fluency and comprehension. The GORT-5 allows us to gain a deeper understanding of reading fluency and comprehension levels.
The Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing – Second Edition (CTOPP-2): The CTOPP-2 is a targeted assessment of phonological skills. These skills are needed to successfully sound out new words.
We are able to determine whether you or your child has a Dyslexia diagnosis, which is a common Learning Disability Diagnosis. We also test for Dyscalculia diagnosis (math disability diagnosis) and a Specific Learning Disability in Written Expression. We serve those living in Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker, Greenwood Village, and other communities in the Denver Metro area.
