The importance of specific Diagnosis

We couldn’t agree more! This is why it is so important to get a Diagnostic evaluation that assesses your child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses; only then can you create proper treatment planning and help a child use their cognitive strengths to overcome any difficulties they have. Learning Disabilities are NOT one size fits all, even within specific Learning Disabilities such as Dyslexia or Dyscalculia. Neuropsychological assessment offers a direct, objective way to see how your child learns and what they struggle with. The DSM-V specification for Specific Learning Disorder or any other Diagnostic Category is a simply a way to label a child’s difficulty, the important information on how to overcome that difficulty comes through proper assessment. If you are concerned about a child with a possible learning disorder, objective assessment through a qualified clinician is the best way to get the answers and create a specialized treatment plan.
