Educational Evaluations

Do you suspect you have a learning difference?

Unpack your brain.

SLC Educational Evaluations serve as a powerful tool to help you understand how you think and learn. We can help you find the next steps to optimize your performance in the classroom and beyond.

NOTE: We provide evaluations or assessments for suspected learning disabilities or ADHD, or for those who need an updated evaluation for accommodations at school or standardized academic and professional exams. The SLC provides evaluations only to those who are experiencing academic difficulty and need documentation for accommodations.

What to Expect

The SLC@CHC offers two types of diagnostic evaluations.

Full Evaluation

  • A complete educational evaluation if you have never been formally diagnosed with a Learning Disability and/or ADHD
  • 6-8 hours with the SLC Assessment Psychologist over several sessions
  • Led by SLC Assessment Psychologist
  • Final feedback meeting and written report

Evaluation Update

  • An update to existing evaluation of a diagnosed Learning Disability and/or ADHD
  • 3-5 hours with the SLC Assessment Psychologist over several sessions
  • Led by SLC Assessment Psychologist
  • Final feedback meeting and written report

Our Evaluation Process

1. Meet with SLC Experts

SLC educational evaluations will begin with an in-person team meeting with your SLC Assessment Psychologist and SLC Learning Specialist. These meetings take 90 minutes.

2. Assess Gifts and Strengths

Then the Assessment Psychologist will begin testing to identify your gifts and strengths, locate areas to strengthen with a learning specialist, and recommend appropriate academic and test accommodations if you are diagnosed with a learning disability or ADHD.

3. Educational Evaluation Report and Feedback

The final feedback session will be scheduled approximately within one week of the final testing session, and the report will be delivered to the client within 6 weeks of the final testing session. The report will be sent via encrypted email from CHC’s Medical Records department.

Waiting Times

The current wait time for SLC Evaluations is up to 7 months. Several factors may expedite anticipated wait times, including clients completing services, staff returning from family leave, new hires, etc. We encourage those who are interested to register and get on our waitlist. As we are able to increase capacity, we will schedule waitlisted clients according to registration date.

All SLC clients are encouraged to work with one of our expert learning specialists to develop strategies to optimize your performance in school and work while you wait for your educational evaluation. For questions about registration or anything else, please contact slc@chconline.org.
