Mrs. Fleming-Thomas specializes in diagnostic evaluations, including comprehensive psychoeducational and ADHD evaluations for individuals aged 16 and above. Diagnostic evaluations offer a thorough assessment of various aspects that impact learning, academic and career success, emotional well-being, behavioral functioning, and overall well-being. They encompass areas such as academic achievement, cognitive processing abilities, executive functioning, psychosocial adjustment, mental health, memory, language, processing speed, and visual-perceptual skills.
These evaluations yield multiple outcomes: clarifying diagnoses, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and providing tailored recommendations. They also assist in obtaining academic support, accommodations, and creating personalized treatment plans. ALCAS is committed to delivering high-quality evaluations for individuals to achieve success in all areas of life. Whether you're a young student struggling in school, a college applicant seeking personalized strategies or academic accommodations, or an adult looking to enhance your skillset, these evaluations dive deep into your strengths and challenges to pave the way for success and support.
Mrs. Fleming-Thomas understands the importance of timely support and collaborates closely with clients to schedule evaluations in a timely fashion. Finalized reports are provided promptly, ensuring comprehensive assessments that inform recommendations, academic accommodations, and treatment needs as required.
The evaluation, which takes approximately 3-6 hours, will include administration of the following: intellectual/cognitive assessment, academic achievement assessment, tests of executive functioning abilities and neurological functioning, emotional/behavioral and personality assessment, assessment of learning styles and skills, followed by an in-depth clinical interview, review of personal history and review of previous testing and documentation.
The information will then be summarized to determine patterns of individual strengths and weaknesses, formulate a diagnostic impression, and provide customized recommendations based on the findings from the testing. This will all be summarized in a comprehensive and detailed report delivered via PDF format.
Fees can vary as each assessment is tailored to your unique needs and testing batteries can sometimes be customizable. Please contact the office for further information. If you are experiencing significant financial hardship, special arrangements may be considered.
Insurance is not accepted for such evaluation; however, an itemized receipt may be furnished upon your request.
Expedited report completion is available (report completion within 72 hours of the day of testing) for an extra charge. Standard report completion time is typically 2-3 weeks from the date of testing.
A one-hour consultation (or feedback session) is included with this service and is highly recommended to discuss findings and recommendations. This can be done in person, by phone conference, or by video conference.
Evaluations are conducted in a comfortable and private office setting, ensuring a relaxed environment for clients. Clients have access to snacks and breaks throughout the evaluation process to further enhance their comfort. The goal is to create a stress-free environment that enables clients to concentrate on the evaluation process.
Please Note: This clinic does not provide evaluations for most legal matters such as custody or divorce disputes, criminal matters, SSD claims, immigration hardship, or for employee selection, character fitness, TCLEOS evals or military-related evaluations.
