1. Yes. Screenings are designed for adults, teens and children ages six and older, who are gifted, typically developing or are experiencing learning uniqueness or challenges and those actually with labels such as ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia or Dysgraphia.

While LGS provides help and hope for all learning issues including sensory challenges and syndromes or brain trauma, this particular screening service is not designed to address higher levels of involvement. With these situations, one is encouraged to consider a full evaluation or an in-home brain training program which will address the specific needs of these difficulties and disabilities.

 

2. Each certified neuro-screener is a private contractor who sets their own rates.  One can anticipate paying $25-$50 if participating in a screening event.  Private Screening Consultations range from $50-$135.  This depends on the number of individuals being screened within the family and the rate structure of the individual neuro-screener.   Please speak with your screener when scheduling the appointment to verify the rate.

 

3. The NeuroDevelopmental Screening is completed by a certified screener and is designed to illuminate root causes of learning challenges.  It is a snapshot of current developmental function resulting in information to make an informed decision on a next step to neurological efficiency for the individual. 

The Individual Evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of an individual provided by a neuro-educational specialist or NeuroDevelopmentalist whereby a completed profile is created for the individual and standardized tests are administered. The profile reveals inefficiencies in six areas of function (tactile, auditory, visual, manual, language and mobility) on nine levels of brain development. From the evaluation information and parent consultation, an individualized program is written that contains intervention activities to correct learning/developmental/academic inefficiencies.  A complete evaluation includes an Individualized NeuroDevelopmental Program (INP), online training for all activities and support for the family for every four months of intervention.

 

4. No, this is not an in-depth individual evaluation. It is a quick way to check the current performance levels and determine why the participant may be struggling in one or more areas. Options for resolving these issues are given during our screening seminar or consultation session. It’s up to you to take what you have learned and apply it. You will be introduced to several programs that could help the participant(s).

 

5. During the screening the participant will be asked to play some memory games, participate in some games involving looking and listening and finally do some physical activities such as throwing a ball and skipping.  Because there are several physical activities that require moving around on the floor, we ask that the participant wear comfortable clothes (It is best for girls to wear pants.  If this is not possible, shorts should be worn underneath).

 

6. A screening assesses key areas of development through an overview of gross motor function, eye function and auditory processing. Through assessing function in these major areas the screener is able to determine if the participant has completed certain benchmarks within the developmental process.  When these areas are not complete, it is typically the root cause of learning inefficiencies.
