Plano >Diagnostic Learning Services- ADHD & Dyslexia Testing
The best thing we did!!!!. We recently took our son to Diagnostic Learning Services for an ADHD evaluation. We worked with both Laurie Gaines and Dr. Kristen Wilson. Both were extremely helpful and the information we were able to gather from their evaluation was exactly what we needed. They were able to get us in quickly and it did not take long to get the results back. They made some great recommendations for both us and his teacher. We were very happy with the entire process and would recommend their services to anyone who thinks that their child may have attention or learning problems.
Wow!. I read all the great reviews here and, you have to wonder, maybe they are all friends who do the reviews. But I called and got a call back from Laurie the same day. She was extremely helpful just in the introductory phone call. She also suggested some other therapies that might help my daughter and, after spending quite awhile talking to me, suggested that it did not appear that ADHD testing was warranted at least right now. So, basically, she talked herself out of a job! That really impressed me because she certainly could have suggested I do the testing anyway. 5 stars!
What a wonderful experience for my son and I!. My son is in 5th grade and has struggled with reading for years. As a parent, I have asked the school system to test him. The school stated that he had to go through a response to intervention process and wanted to wait 30 weeks to test him! I started looking around at private testing centers. The waiting list for Shelton was over 1 year, and Scottish Rite was about the same. I continued to call different testing centers and found that diagnostic learning services could schedule an appointment within two weeks! I was so excited the staff was so friendly and the testing took about 3 hours verse a whole day! I had the report within a week to share with his teachers and the staff at diagnostic learning services went to meet his teachers with me! It is so exciting to watch him be more successful in the classroom!
GREAT pricing ( half of the others) Fantastic service and quality!. Last fall, after our first parent/teacher conference, our daughter?s second grade teacher mentioned that she was exhibiting some characteristics of Dyslexia. The school district we attend does not do dyslexia evaluations until student are either in the second semester of 2nd grade or in 3rd grade. We did not want to wait, so we initially contacted Scottish Rite. They informed us that the wait for an evaluation was 9 months long. So, we did some research and found Diagnostic Learning Services. Laurie was wonderful on the phone during our initial call and confirmed, based on what I shared, that we definitely need to have our daughter evaluated. After talking to several other testing centers, I was pleasantly surprised by her prices as they were half of what others quoted. Laurie was spot on with her evaluation and was able to make the dyslexia diagnosis. She was well informed regarding the programs at the school including the difference between 504 and special ed. She attended a meeting at our school with us, for no additional charge, where she was able to help us understand what the school was offering and helped us to get additional services for our daughter. We are so thankful for Laurie and all the help she gave us.
Don't wait for sylvan learning center, this place can accomodate you today!. Our son?s 4th grade teacher had suggested we take him for an ADHD evaluation as he was having difficulties staying focused in class. We really did not believe he was ADHD but felt like we should pursue the evaluation just to be sure. We contacted Diagnostic Learning Services and spoke with Laurie Gaines. After talking with her, we decided to move forward with the evaluation. Laurie?s take was that there are lots of things out there that cause kids to look ?unfocused? and she wanted to rule out all the possibilities before we called it ADHD. We were so pleased with how thorough her evaluation was. We were able to rule out ADHD as the cause of my son?s difficulties in the classroom and realized it was due to a learning disability. With Laurie?s assessment, we were able to access services at my son?s school through the 504 program and he has since made significant progress.
Finally some Help! Learning how our son learns. I have a son in the 11th grade that was previously diagnosed with Dyslexia. We had been working with our school counselor trying to get him extended time on the SAT. The dyslexia testing we had was completed when he was in the 5th grade. He had been receiving 504 accommodations, but needed his dyslexia testing updated in order for the College Board to consider him for extend time. We found Diagnostic learning Services on the internet and gave them a call. Laurie was very informative and was familiar with our situation. She was able to get our son in for a full academic evaluation within a week and we had the results back in just a few days. She met with my husband and I to review the results then gave us some suggestions on additional accommodations that the school could do for our son. Her evaluation gave us so much more information than just the confirmation of his Dyslexia. We left her office feeling like we had a better understanding of our son and how he learns. We are happy to report that he also was able to receive additional time on his SAT. Thanks so much Laurie!
Diagnostic Learning Services solved all our problems.
I have a 3rd grade daughter who was struggling with reading. Her teacher suggested that I get her evaluated for Dyslexia. I contacted the Shelton School and their evaluation center had a 6 month wait list, plus the cost was well over $1000. I found Diagnostic Learning Services through a web search and contacted them immediately. Laurie was fabulous. She was able to get my daughter in within a week and I had the results of the evaluation within days. She was even able to go in on a Saturday and avoided missing any school. The evaluation was very complete and it turns out that my daughter does have dyslexia. The best part was that Laurie was able to advise me as to what to ask for at school. She recommended the school's 504 program, which serves kids with dyslexia as well as testing accommodations for the TAKS test. She also talked to us about what we can do at home as well as options for tutoring. She followed up with us after the evaluation to see if we needed anything and even offerred to attend a meeting at school with us. My daughter is now receiving the help she needs. I cannot recommend Diagnostic Learning Services enough. Thanks so much for all you have done!
