The Importance of Testing for Learning Disabilities

The Importance of Testing for Learning Disabilities

No two people are alike. We all have our very own unique gifts and our own unique challenges. If they aren’t given the help and support that they need, children whose challenges include conditions like autism, dyslexia, dyscalculia and ADHD in Denver may not have the opportunity to develop their true potential and fully explore the gifts they have been given. 

If you suspect that your child may be struggling as the new school year gets underway because of an undiagnosed condition such as ADHD or one of the various types of learning disabilities, autism testing or a learning disabilities evaluation can be an important step. 

As the experts at Understood.org say, “1 in 5 people in the United States with learning and thinking differences often get left out or left behind. Their talents go unused because they don’t have the support and resources that they need to give their very best. When that happens, we all lose out.”

Testing for Learning Disabilities

Why is it important to have your child undergo professional ADHD testing, learning disability testing or an autism evaluation? As Dr. Gary M. Eisenberg of the Littleton ADHD Autism Dyslexia Center explains, when these conditions go undiagnosed, children often fall behind in school and subsequently struggle with self-esteem issues. A complete professional learning disability evaluation can be a proactive step that will help your child to grow and thrive. 

Once your child’s unique challenges have been identified, Dr. Gary and his team can work with you to develop a way forward for you and your child. Having the results of a professional learning disabilities evaluation will also allow you to ensure that the school they attend provides the necessary support or services that will enable your child to thrive. 

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.
