Comprehensive testing is recommended for unexplained causes of academic underachievement, reading, writing, or math difficulties, attention and organization problems, and visual and auditory processing problems. The Eides do see children with primary behavioral or socialization issues. We have a special interest in assessing and advocating for gifted and twice exceptional students, and college-attending or college-bound dyslexics.

Referring physicians may use a wide variety of appropriate diagnosis codes, including, but not limited to: learning disability (315.2), encephalopathy (348.30), attention deficit disorder (314.00), academic underachievement (313.83), developmental delay (315.90), or spells (780.39).
Neurology Consultation includes a survey of all major nervous system functions including vision, hearing, gross language, fine & gross motor coordination, strength, sensation, and general outline of medical and developmental history, and review of symptoms. Based on the Neurology Consultation, referrals to appropriate therapists and other professionals are made.
The Neuropsychological Assessment includes examination for major cognitive areas, including hemispheric dominance, pencil control, fine motor control & speed, phonology, speed of word retrieval, and language skills (receptive, expressive, figurative, semantic, syntactical). Selection of tests may vary, but usually ability-achievement discrepancies are determined by IQ testing (WISC-IV, WAIS-IV), achievement tests (WIAT-III) and with selected subtests from the Woodcock Johnson Cognitive Abilities Test III, Nelson-Denny Reading testing, PEEX2, PEERAMID, etc. as appropriate. Our reports will also include practical advice regarding learning differences or preferences, and specific curricular or resources recommendations. We will review school reports, written and creative work of students, and results of previous IQ or cognitive assessments. At times, families have invited children's teachers or tutors to the follow-up visit, and this can be very helpful for coordinating the student's plan.
