Evaluation Services

At The LEAP Clinic, we specialize in providing comprehensive evaluations tailored to each child's unique needs. Our evaluations can provide diagnostic clarification, but most importantly, they can help families understand their child's unique patterns of strengths and needs as they relate to social, emotional, cognitive, and academic development. We specialize in assessments for neurodevelopmental disorders including intellectual disabilities, autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and learning disorders. These evaluations can also assess other emotional and behavioral challenges, to help families understand their child's whole development and create strategies to support their growth and well-being.

Because each evaluation is tailored to your child's needs, a range of fees is provided below for different types of evaluations. Dr. Epler will provide a free 15-minute consultation call to help each family understand what type of testing will best meet their family's needs.

Comprehensive Psychoeducational Assessment

A comprehensive assessment is one of the most commonly requested types of assessment, as it helps families get a deeper and more complete understanding of their child's strengths and challenges. It allows them to understand what domains may be negatively impacting academic, social, or emotional functioning. Areas assessed may include attention, learning, and emotional/behavioral disorders. Assessments may include:

  • Intelligence testing

  • Assessment of adaptive skills

  • Achievement testing in all academic areas

  • Testing of necessary neuropsychological processing areas such as processing speed, visual motor skills, visual-perceptual skills, auditory processing skills, phonological processing skills, attention/concentration skills, memory

  • Behavioral/emotional/social assessment as needed

  • Feedback appointment(s) to explain the results of testing

  • Comprehensive written report with suggested interventions

Cost: range from $2500 to $3000

ADHD Assessment

For some families, completing an assessment for a formal diagnosis of ADHD is beneficial. This assessment may include:

  • Comprehensive intelligence testing

  • Assessment of adaptive/daily living skills

  • Parent and teacher measures for emotional and behavioral functioning

  • Computerized attention assessment

  • Assessment of attention and executive functioning skills

  • Feedback appointment(s) to explain the results of testing

  • Brief written report including suggestions for intervention

Cost: ranges from $1500 to $2000

Developmental/Behavioral Assessment

  • Intelligence testing

  • Assessment of adaptive/daily living skills

  • Assessment of verbal and nonverbal communication skills

  • Behavioral and social skills assessment

Intellectual Assessment Only

Some families are interested in learning more about their child’s intellectual abilities. This may be done to get an idea of a child’s baseline functioning before an unpredictable injury or changes in their levels of functioning due to a medical/neurological condition. Some families may also be asked to have testing completed to as part of testing into a gifted program or for entry into some private school settings. This assessment includes:

  • Comprehensive Intelligence testing

  • Brief written report

Cost: $500

Dyslexia Assessment

Often parents may have concerns related to their child’s abilities related to reading. While schools may be able to provide testing related to academic achievement, there are many times when there are academic concerns that are not able to be adequately addressed through school testing. For these situations, private testing may be beneficial for children. This assessment may include:

  • Comprehensive intelligence testing

  • Achievement testing in the following domains: basic reading, reading comprehension, reading fluency, spelling, and phonological processing

  • Feedback appointment(s) to explain the results of testing

  • Brief written report with suggestions for intervention

Cost: range from $1500 to $2000

Consultation Services

Some families may benefit from a consultation appointment to review previously completed testing, IEPs, or other paperwork. Consultations services may be helpful to discuss whether or not an updated evaluation may be appropriate given previous testing. Services may also include meetings with schools or therapists to further discuss evaluation recommendations and implementation of appropriate services.

Cost: $150 per hour
