Many motivated college and university students are concerned that aspects of their learning abilities or their emotional well-being is hindering their potential in their post-secondary programs. Some of these concerns problems with attention, memory, comprehension, specific academic skills (e.g., decoding new vocabulary, essay writing, solving math problems), anxiousness, depressed mood, or difficulty demonstrating their knowledge within allotted exam times.
An assessment is a valuable investment for adults encountering difficulties because it helps determine if the difficulties you're experiencing are the result of an underlying neurodevelopmental condition such as a learning disability, ADHD, or a mental health condition such as depression or anxiety. Learning disabilities range from mild to severe, and it's not unusual mild learning disabilities to go unnoticed in highly motivated individuals until the college/university years.
Once an assessment is completed and your learning strengths and needs and/or mental health issues are understood, an informed comprehensive plan is developed to help move you forward. This plan consists of recommendations tailored to you, which may include accommodations for you in school to ensure accessibility, and strategies based on your strengths and areas of need. In this way, an assessment can have a positive and life changing impact by reducing barriers to your success, which can help you achieve your goals.

The end result of the assessment is a one-on-one feedback session to discuss the assessment findings and recommendations tailored to you. A comprehensive formal report is also provided, which you can use to access academic accommodations in university or college, accommodations for various high stakes entrance exams (e.g., GRE, LSAT, MCAT, or GMAT), or special grants.
The value of an assessments is not just limited to post-secondary students, but also to adults who are advocating for reasonable accommodations in the workplace, or to adults applying for AISH or PDD funding.
