Resources for Testing for Disability

Following is a list of individuals who will provide evaluations for Learning Disabilities (LD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), or Psychiatric Disabilities.  Please note that a number of other individuals may be qualified to provide evaluations.  We suggest that you consult with multiple providers.  It is in your best interest to compare providers in order to obtain one that best fits your needs.

 When comparing providers, obtain the following information:

 1. Cost of evaluation

2.  Insurance coverage available

3.  Time required to obtain results of an evaluation

4.  Willingness of provider to schedule an additional meeting after the assessment to explain the results of the testing and to answer questions.
