Assessments and Evaluations with P.A.T.H.
People like to say that admitting you have a problem is the first step to getting better. If that’s true, then the second step is assessing and evaluating exactly what the problem is. P.A.T.H. has the training, skill, and compassion to provide psychological evaluations for:
Cognitive and achievement evaluation for school or accommodations (Psycho-educational Testing)
Assessment of giftedness
Evaluation of Learning Disabilities
Comprehensive evaluation for ADHD and Autism for children and young adults

The results may also qualify you to receive accommodations in college/university and/or for standardized tests such as SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, Bar, and other graduate school entrance exams.
P.A.T.H. offers assessments for children, adolescents, and emerging adults who believe they may be suffering from a Learning Disability (Reading Disability - Dyslexia, Math Disability - Dyscalculia, Disability of Written Language, etc.) . Learning Disabilities are difficult things for parents, teachers, and children to navigate. Our comprehensive evaluations will help identify any issues you or your child may be having and develop a management plan. With the latest research and science, we will help guide your child through their learning development and create stronger learning habits that fit their needs.
Being evaluated by P.A.T.H. also opens the door for any assistance programs that exist for children and adults with learning differences or challenges. You will gain access to specially trained teachers and staff who will help your child learn in their own unique way to enhance their learning capabilities. Also, you will be able to utilize benefits to assist in the care and nurturing of your child. A P.A.T.H. learning assessment can help make your life easier, and your child’s life more fulfilling.
P.A.T.H. Evaluations and Assessments Benefit Everyone
There is still a huge stigma around mental health issues. Even thinking about going in for an Autism evaluation can be terrifying. That’s twice as true when you’re bringing in your child. You might have even been told that conditions like ADHD or depression weren’t real conditions. Seeing a doctor and getting an evaluation can leave you feeling phony, or worse, weak. A lot of people wind up waiting until a mental health question becomes a crisis to seek an evaluation.
P.A.T.H. thinks there’s a better way.
