Mental health is not the only issue that affects learning abilities.
Learning disorders can also affect your child or teen from benefiting from education. Sometimes these are difficult to detect. I think of a recent patient who was NOT diagnosed with learning disabilities until their senior year in High School! They always knew something was wrong, but were well behaved and got decent grades, so they flew under the radar.
At CTFT we not only look at your child’s mental health, but also your child’s ability to benefit from education. Our therapists are all trained to assess for educational needs during an intake and have been able to advocate for and support students and families in getting accommodations, if needed, and while dealing with mental health. We look out for warning signs of a learning disorder and refer promptly to educational testing as needed.
However, the wait lists are long and the educational psychologist’s testing abilities are impacted. Communication between different entities such as the psychologist, school and therapist can be difficult. We wanted to do better and are pleased to announce that we now offer educational and neurodevelopmental testing as part of our services!
CTFT now offers comprehensive evaluations for education under our roof, making CTFT a one stop place for the mental health and educational needs of your children and teens! We are pleased to announce that Darlene de Sousa, educational psychologist is our newest staff member, dedicated to the needs of our CTFT patients and of our community.
Do not miss this rare opportunity to get testing done quickly without the wait!
