Welcome Specializing in the assessment and treatment options for: DYSLEXIA ADD/ADHD LEARNING DISORDERS EXTENDED TIME & ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STANDARDIZED EXAMS IQ OPTIMIZATION PSYCHOTHERAPY Services Can Be Tax Deductible-Click Here Adults   and   teens   with   learning   disabilities   may   be   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 who are seeking documentation as part of their application to request 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-5   (Diagnostic   and   Statistical   Manual   of   Mental   Disorders)   diagnosis is necessary when you are trying to qualify for services at school or work. Dr.   Smith   is   a   licensed   psychologist   and   neuropsychologist   and   is   a   consultant   for   the   Michigan   Dyslexia   Institute   and provides   comprehensive   neuropsychological   evaluations   for   Dyslexia,   ADHD   and   other   Learning   Disorders   at   the   Michigan Dyselxia   Institute   Abrams   Teaching   Laboratory   in   Lansing   and   at   the   Michigan   Dyselxia   Institute   Detroit   Metro   Center   in Berkley Michigan. Not   sure   if   an   evaluation   is   right   place   you   or   your   child?   All   evaluations   by   Dr.   Smith   consider   a   braod   range   of   causes   for reading   and   other   learning   idsorders,   not   just   Dyslexia.   During   the   Intake   Interview   your   history   and   previous   evaluations, if   you   have   them,   are   reviewed   to   determine   what   tests   need   to   be   administered   to   address   your   concerns   and   Dr.   Smith will   evaluate   for   other   types   of   conditions   that   are   indicated.   All   of   this   will   be   discussed   thoroughly   with   you   after   the Intake Interview and before any testing so you can make an informed decision about what's best for you.
