Dallas Brain Coach offers Comprehensive Psychoeducational Evaluations used for school and college accommodation plans, as well as individualized assessments and remediation for individuals ages 6 to 96.

Individualized Assessments and Remediation

Step 1: Dallas Brain Coach offers a free phone consultation to determine which evaluations will be used to create a remediation plan.

Step 2: One or more of the following evaluations will be used:

  • Psychoeducational Evaluation to determine specific learning disabilities, including dyslexia and dysgraphia, as well as other developmental disabilities
  • ADD/ADHD and Executive Function Screening
  • Cognitive Screening for Adults
  • Emotional/Behavioral Screening
  • Brain Training Evaluation
  • Vocational Evaluation for high school and college as well as adults changing professions

Step 3: Once the evaluation has been completed, a conference will be scheduled to review test results, recommendations, and the proposed remediation plan with the parents and child (when appropriate). The goal of this meeting is for everyone involved to understand the student’s unique learning profile, discuss specific learning strategies and identify recommendations to help maximize learning potential. A written report will be provided.

Comprehensive Psychoeducational Evaluation

A Comprehensive Psychoeducational Evaluation will include:

The ability to understand and communicate will be screened to determine if speech or language problems make it difficult for participation in everyday activities such as school, work, and social environments. If language skills do not appear to be developing age appropriately, further evaluation by a Speech/Language Pathologist may be recommended. Some of the tests used may include the following: WJ-IV, WIAT-2, CTOPP-2, TELD-3, ALST, and/or OWLS.
Physical or heath concerns can interfere with the ability to participate in everyday activities. Current information on vision and hearing, as well as any information from medical reports is extremely important. Screening instruments or tests used may include: Beery VMI-V, IVA-QS, and BOT-2.
Knowing how well someone gets along with others at home, school and/or work is important. Information gathered from parents, teachers and the individual will give vital input into these areas of the evaluation. Screening instruments or tests used may include: BASC-2, MASC-2, BYI-2, BDI and/or BAI.
Intelligence tests measure overall learning potential. Factors of typical IQ tests include verbal concept formation, fluid and non-verbal reasoning, working memory and processing speed. Examples of IQ tests include but are not limited to the following: WPPSI-IV, WISC-V, WAIS-IV, and the WJ-IV Cognitive.
Assessment includes the essential areas of learning: Reading, Writing, Math, Oral Expression, Listening Comprehension and Academic Fluency. Each area is broken down into specific skill components and strengths and weaknesses are identified. Achievement tests may include but are not limited to: WJ-IV, WIAT-2, GORT-5.
Parents and teachers will be asked to complete forms that will give insight into performance in different environments. This information will be used as part of the Psychoeducational Evaluation Report and will assist in developing the recommendations provided with the report.
