Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs)
Learning Insights is ready to help parents and school districts increase their understanding of a student's special educational needs by providing comprehensive, impartial cognitive and educational assessments.
Diagnostic Evaluations for Children in Foster Care
Learning Insights has more than 20 years of experience working with DSS agencies, helping them recommend placement and clinical services for children in their care.
If a child has suffered a facial disfigurement due to a fire or dog bite, Dr. Rivera can perform an evaluation of the child to determine whether the child is suffering from PTSD. These evaluations can be requested by a parent, an insurance company, or an attorney who is involved in a civil litigation lawsuit.
Evaluations for College Students and Working Adults
Learning Insights helps adults with special learning needs receive the accommodations necessary to compete fairly on tests and other performance measures by collaboratively developing with clients a Section 504 Plan.
Learning Insights prides itself on using the latest tools and applying decades of experience in performing diagnostic assessments on complex cases, particularly when the following disorders are suspected: Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia or Dyscalculia, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Learning Insights is one of only a few places in the Hudson Valley that utilizes the "gold standard" assessment tools for autism, the ADI-R and ADOS-2.
If you are seeking to better understand your learning or personality style, Learning Insights will work collaboratively with you to achieve optimal self-understanding.
