Learning Disability Testing
Children and adults can struggle academically for a variety of reasons. Problems with reading, writing and math can make it difficult to learn effectively because these skills are required in order to learn. With the help of learning disabilities testing, we are able to examine the hierarchy of skills used in each area to discover what the learning disability and how a client can adjust to his/her unique circumstances. CNLD Testing & Therapy provides:
- Dyslexia Testing
- Dysgraphia Testing
- Dyscalculia Testing
- ADHD Testing
- Autism Testing
- Educational Advocacy
- Executive Functions Testing and Coaching
- And Other Forms of Learning Disabilities Testing

What Does Learning Disabilities Testing Do?
A learning disability (LD) assessment can help to diagnose dyslexia (reading disability), dysgraphia (writing disability) or dyscalculia (math disability). This type of evaluation typically does not examine attention, memory, executive functions or anxiety because these skills are assessed through a more extensive neuropsychological evaluation. As part of the initial interview, the psychologist will help you determine which evaluation is most appropriate for you or your child. Learning disabilities testing takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete, depending on the areas examined.
If you feel that you or someone you care about would benefit from this type of assessment, call CNLD Testing & Therapy at (734) 994-9466.
Can Learning Disabilities Go Away on Their Own?
Learning disabilities typically do not go away on their own, but they can be managed with intervention and educational accommodations. With reading and writing, addressing difficulties with encoding/decoding, fluency and comprehension/expression is necessary. If any difficulties are found in these areas, we can examine the component skills of literacy, such as phonological awareness, orthographic awareness and rapid naming.
Math performance is examined for written and applied math on word problems and fluency in recalling basic facts. We also can examine the building blocks of math, such as number sense and development of an internal number line.
Once we know the underlying issues at hand, we can recommend effective solutions to address them. This happens through our educational advocacy program and other aftercare services once the learning disabilities testing is complete.
