Discovering Your Learning Potential

I believe it is not helpful to lump students into categories based on test scores so diagnosis is an outcome, but is not the chief end of an evaluation. Rather, I seek to identify how a person learns, where the strengths and weaknesses lie and what the learning preferences are in order to effect a positive change.

A psycho-educational evaluation provides information about the nature of an individual's learning ability : intellectual ability, processing strengths and weaknesses, academic skill development and particular educational needs. Appropriate use of this information can dramatically change the course of a student's educational life. Nancy Whittington skillfully puts these pieces together to help parent and student understand the individual's particular learning profile and the best course for educational care. Full evaluations are offered to individuals preschool through young adulthood. Students seen may be experiencing some difficulty in school, seeking more information about the source of that difficulty and the best form of remediation. Educational evaluations also provide helpful information to parents who want to understand how their child learns best or who seek advice about the most appropriate school placement given their child's strengths and needs.
