Assessments & Evaluations
The assessment of learning issues such as dyslexia, dyscalculia (math learning disorder), dysgraphia (written expression learning disorder), fine motor skill deficit, attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder, processing issues, Asperger’s, autism, and other learning issues are Dr. Danielak's areas of expertise. Dr. Danielak’s testing process is considered gold standard in the industry. The testing report includes data from all of the tests and questionnaires administered, any diagnoses if found, and an extensive list of interventions for both home and school. Parents will have a definitive understanding of their student’s strengths and weaknesses. Dr. Danielak has training in school neuropsychology testing protocols and utilizes these methods when diagnosing and treating learning and attention disorders. If you are interested in testing for dyslexia, the minimum age is 24 years old.
Evaluations for Students Explained:
The full testing process is completed in 5 appointments. The appointments are as follows, first, there is a 1-hour intake session with parents, then 3 one-to-one testing sessions with your student (two 3-hour sessions and one 1.5 hour session). A minimum of two weeks after the final testing session, Dr. Danielak will meet with parents to review testing results, diagnosis, and provide recommendations for next steps at home and at school. This meeting is 2 hours long and parents are provided with a comprehensive report written so they will be able to read and understand the testing, the results, and be able to apply recommendations to both home and school. This report is accepted at schools as documentation, if the parent decides to inform the school of the results.
ADHD Testing for Adults Explained:
Adult ADHD testing is 3 appointments. The first session is the 1- hour testing intake with Dr. Danielak. The second session is up to a 1-hour appointment. These appointments can be scheduled back-to-back. Part of the testing is computer-based, and part includes checklists that you and/or significant other will take home and complete. The final appointment is a 1-hour feedback session during which Dr. Danielak will review your test result and provide you with a comprehensive report. This report will include recommendations on how to improve daily life and resources for further information. If you are interested in testing for dyslexia, please contact the office.
