The assessment process is very in-depth and is designed to understand
and identify the individual’s unique learning style and optimize
the learning experience.
After the first telephone contact, forms and checklists are sent to the
family and teachers. A one hour parent consult is scheduled in
order to review your child’s development and to discuss your
concerns and goals.
The testing day is a full day, approximately 4-6 hours of testing.
During that time, a flexible battery of tests, tailored to your
questions/concerns, is administered. Dr. Serpas engages and interacts
with your child in a one-on-one testing situation. No
technicians or para-professionals are used in any phase of the
After the data are analyzed, a comprehensive report of the results and
an integrated interpretation of the findings is developed.
Data-driven recommendations are made in order to build on your
child’s strengths and address any areas of difficulty.
A two hour feedback session is then conducted with the parents, during
which the findings and the recommendations are discussed. A copy of the
report is given to parents. If parents request, the report may be
disseminated to educators, therapists, tutors, or physicians in order
to facilitate advocacy and the development of appropriate treatments,
interventions, and supports.
Depending on the age of the individual, a shorter, child-friendly
feedback session is also offered to your child. Feedback can help
your child better understand his or her learning profile, foster
resilience, and improve treatment compliance. Feedback with the
child helps to demystify why school or other situations are
challenging, while validating his or her efforts and inviting them to
collaborate on strategies for success.
Upon parent request, Dr. Serpas is also available for feedback meetings
with your child’s educational team.
