learning disabilities assessment & Help in Calgary

Learning disabilities and learning disorders are particular types of learning problems that children and adults can have.   Some of these learning disabilities have names, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and nonverbal learning disability.   

If your child or teen is struggling with certain things in school, it might be a learning disability.  If your child or teen is improving but never seems to fully catch up, it might be a learning disability.  There is no need to guess or wonder.  Assessments give clear answers.

Schools recommend us for learning disability assessments

We can see children as early as kindergarten to check out their learning and make a plan.  Sometimes people think they need to wait until children are older.  Don't wait!  Early identification means earlier help during the years when neuroplasticity is highest.  

The Family Psychology Place offers professional assessment of learning disabilities in Calgary and we are happy to assist you in choosing the best course of action for dealing with these problems.

Early identification is important

We see many children, teens, and adults who have learning disabilities.   When we can identify what is causing the problem, we can guide everyone in what to do.  Frustration and stress go down.  Success and confidence go up.   We help people with learning disabilities reach their potential!

We work with all schools, from preschool to post-secondary.  We make plans that schools can follow.   Schools say that our reports give clear conclusions and clear advice.   We advise in what to do and also what not to do.  Our reports can be used to access special programs, accommodations, and private schools.

We guide parents in evidence-based help.   Many types of tutoring do not work for learning disabilities.   We provide specialized tutoring for learning disabilities, including dyslexia.  

Medical Tax credits 

If you or your child has a diagnosed learning disability, you may be eligible to claim tutoring and other expenses on your taxes.  You may also be able to claim tuition in private school on your taxes.  Ask us about this after your assessment.

If you wonder whether your child has a learning disability, don’t wait a minute longer.  

Call The Family Psychology Place to book an appointment for a learning disability assessment.
