Is it time to demystify the learning challenges that you or your child are experiencing? Psycho-educational evaluations can accomplish this, and as part of the process offer evidence-based recommendations; however, a psycho-educational evaluation is only as good as the experience and knowledge of the individual who administers and interprets various forms of data and information. My goal at Ascent Learning Services, Inc. is to answer your questions and map a road to success. To do this, we must identify strengths, affinities, as well as areas of inefficiency, and thus intelligent recommendations for improved achievement and diminished stress can be offered.

As an experienced, knowledgeable, trusted, and compassionate learning specialist and licensed special educator, I will guide you through the process of learning to value your own, or your child’s, unique abilities and finding success in and out of school.

In addition to evaluations and diagnostic testing, services include one-on-one and small group academic coaching; record reviews and consultations for families and schools; evaluation and planning for gifted and twice-exceptional students; professional development for public and private schools, as well as for those teaching in higher education. I also offer Integrated Listening System (ILS) services. As a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), mindful and meditation concepts and skills can be incorporated into the work I do with those who experience executive functioning (attention and concentration) challenges.

I look forward to working with you! Feel free to call or email me for more information.
