Questions I frequently get asked

Do you take insurance?

I do not take insurance, but I can provide you with the documentation, including CPT and National Provider codes, to submit to your insurance provider.

When is payment due?

At the time of testing.

What types of payments do you accept?

Checks or Venmo are preferred, but I also accept MasterCard and Visa.

What should I tell my child about testing?

You know your child best; depending on the age and maturity level be as honest with your child as possible. Tell him that he or she will be working with Mrs. Premo doing a bunch of different activities to help figure out what they are really good at and what they may need a little help with at school. There is nothing to prepare for; just do your best.

How long before I receive the results?

The feedback conference is generally held within 2 to 3 weeks after the testing is completed. At that time, you will receive the full report, including recommended accommodations and interventions.

After the testing and conference, are you available for additional consultation?

Yes, I am available for additional support and consultation.

When is the right age/time to get my child tested?

It is never too early or late to be evaluated. Learning differences are diagnosed at all ages. If your child begins to struggle at school and it starts to affect his or her self-esteem, it is time to schedule an evaluation.

What age ranges do you test?

Ages 5 through adulthood.

What diagnoses may be made from the evaluation?

Your child may be diagnosed with a learning difference, which is formally known as a specific learning disability in reading, written expression, and/or math. A diagnosis of dyslexia, dysgraphia, or dyscalculia may also appropriate based on the results of the evaluation. To receive services through 504 or a learning lab, a student generally needs a diagnosis of a specific learning disability made according to the criteria outlined in the DSM-IV.
