We provide assessment for individuals of all ages to determine eligibility for services and academic accommodations during their school years, including college. The comprehensive evaluation includes assessment in the areas of social/emotional functioning, oral language, cognitive processing, and academic achievement. This is typically accomplished through three appointments (each 2 – 2.5 hours).
If you decide to have your child or yourself evaluated, there are several steps you must follow. The first is to download and complete the appropriate packet, the 6-18 year-old packet or the adult packet. The packet contains instructions and materials that need to be completed in order for an interview and evaluation to be scheduled. Please complete/collect all the information listed on the checklist and mail it along with a $50 non-refundable application/processing fee made payable to NSU. The address is included in the packet.
After we receive the completed packet and processing fee (timing is dependent on the length of the waiting list), you will be contacted to discuss the scheduling of appointments. The cost of an evaluation is $825, of which $275 is due the day of the first testing session. A second payment of $275 is collected at the last testing session. After the evaluation report is complete, you will be scheduled to return for a feedback appointment, at which time the remaining $275 is due. Evaluation findings and recommendations will be discussed, and you will receive a thorough written report.
The staff of the Center is here to assist you in any way that we can. If you have any questions, please contact us at (985) 448-4214.
