At Possibilities, we have always provided an integrated and scientifically-sound approach—from the assessments we administer to the treatments we provide. We recognize that Attention Deficit Disorders, like ADD and ADHD, are complicated and usually have other challenges that go along with them, like Learning Disabilities in reading, writing and math. We make diagnoses as a Multidisciplinary Team because we are committed to a comprehensive approach that relies on multi-expert knowledge. And, of course, our experts rely on science to make accurate diagnoses, too!
Beyond assessments for ADHD
and Learning Disabilities
, we provide treatments for a range of concerns. When it comes to learning, we offer interventions to address specific academic challenges. A comprehensive approach—supported by evidence—also guides our treatments. Here are some common questions about our academic interventions, and our responses to provide you with more information.
How do you determine what academic treatment my child might need?
If you’ve started with a Signature Assessment
at Possibilities, then our Team has already examined a full range of skills related to learning including attention, executive functioning, working memory, short- and long-term memory and processing speed. Since our Signature Assessment also examines academic skills in depth—in reading, writing, spelling and math—we’ll have a detailed profile that determines where to start and how to prioritize areas for academic treatment.
Can my child receive academic interventions through Possibilities if we received a Psychoeducational Assessment somewhere else?
Yes, you can. We will require some background information to get us started, including a copy of the Psychoeducational Assessment report, to help us formulate a personalized Treatment Plan.
