Adults and teens with learning disabilities are able to get additional time and other accommodations in high-stakes
testing situations (SAT, ACT, MCAT, LSAT, GRE, GMAT, etc). Dr. Smith offers neuropsychological evaluations to
individuals to give proper documentation to receive more time and/or other accommdations.
BEWARE! Some websites offer so-called evaluations at a much lower cost. However, many of these so-called
“diagnoses” are not real because the practicioners are not licensed to provide a real diagnosis and use definitions that
are not officially recognized and are therefore not real. An official DSM-V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental
Disorders) diagnosis is necessary when you are trying to qualify for services at school or work.
