Forman Diagnostic Center For Individuals With Learning Differences

The Forman Diagnostic Center provides comprehensive evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults to understand each individual’s areas of strength, vulnerabilities, and unique cognitive profile. Our goal is to provide in-depth and user-friendly assessments to both recognize and describe the big picture of how defined skills interact to affect one’s approach to school, work, relationships, social settings, and tasks of everyday living. Taken together, the integration of evaluation results serves to formulate a clear and realistic plan to address areas where individuals experience obstacles that get in the way of their full potential.  

We are excited to offer our expertise in Language-Based Learning Differences, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Executive Functions (EF) to individuals outside of our community. In addition, the Center offers assessment services for concerns regarding anxiety and emotional regulation.
