All tests for dyslexia and learning can be done virtually if needed except for those under 7 and those being evaluated for Autism.  Often Dr. Gary uses a hybrid approach .  This might include several virtual visits but the crux of the testing is done in-person

Parents or adult patient meet with the doctor who presents a no-nonsense game plan that might include accommodations for the school (504 or IEP plan), pinpoint tutoring, placement changes, lifestyle changes or how-to-study based on your processing strengths and weaknesses.

Dyslexia and Learning Disability Testing Online

Due to the challenges of COVID, having a virtual dyslexia or learning disability assessment online is now routine and universally accepted. The doctor is able to present reading, math, processing, IQ, focus and personality tests by sharing screens. Writing tests and some dyslexia testing have to be done with paper and pencil so the student receives a packet via overnight mail to be completed during the virtual testing session. All test data is returned to the doctor’s office in Littleton, Colorado. You can read more about virtual dyslexia and learning disability testing here.

Always there to care.
