​Learning Disabilities Assessment Process

​The process for completing a learning disabilities assessment typically requires four (4) appointments as described below:

1. Intake:

• ​​​​​Important personal, medical and educational history is gathered.

2. Achievement testing:

• ​​​​​​Provides information about present academic skill levels in reading, math, spelling,
   and writing.

3. Intellectual ability testing:

​ • ​​​​​Potential for academic learning is assessed.

​4. Interpretation:

​​ • ​​​​​​Assessment results are reviewed and recommendations are made.

NOTE: Students who have been previously assessed for a learning disability may submit recent testing for evaluation. The need for any additional testing will  be determined after this information has been reviewed.

​Students interested in being assessed for learning disabilities eligibility must contact DSPS at (714) 628-4860 to schedule a screening appointment with a Learning Disabilities Specialist.
