Ascend Psychological Services, PhD, Psychologist in Philadelphia
Ascend Psychological Services provides comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations of school-age children and young adults experiencing academic and behavioral difficulties. Our caring and compassionate team specializes in the assessment of autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), and emotional problems that impact learning. Ascend provides targeted recommendations individually tailored to meet your child's needs and to help him or her build on strengths. In addition, we provide assessments for adolescents seeking college and/or SAT/ACT accommodations as well testing for acceptance into mentally gifted programs and preschool programs.
Ascend evaluations systematically look at a broad spectrum of skills and processes linked to learning/behavioral problems such as sensorimotor functioning, attention, memory, executive functioning, visual perception, language, phonological processing, intelligence, achievement, and socio-emotional functioning. With this information in hand, Ascend psychologists identify effective interventions targeted to the specific needs of your child.
Parents often seek evaluation to determine if their child qualifies for receipt of special education services as a student with an educational disability. Legally, only a certified school psychologist can make this determination and because all Ascend psychologists hold this credential, our evaluation reports can be used to help your child obtain appropriate educational programming.
