Learning Disabilities Assessment

Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS)
DSPS Learning Disabilities Assessment

Assessment for learning disabilities (LD) eligibility is available to students who are experiencing ongoing academic difficulties that interfere with their educational progress.

Learning Disabilities Assessment Process

The process for completing a learning disabilities assessment typically requires four (4) appointments as described below:

  1. Intake: Important personal, medical, developmental, and educational history is gathered.
  2. Intellectual ability testing: Potential for academic learning is assessed.
  3. Achievement testing: Provides information about present academic skill levels in reading, spelling, writing and math.
  4. Interpretation: Assessment results are reviewed. Recommendations and possible accommodations are made.

NOTE: Students who have been previously assessed for a learning disability may submit recent testing for evaluation. The need for any additional testing will be determined after this information has been reviewed.

Students interested in being assessed for learning disabilities eligibility must contact DSPS at (714) 895-8721 to schedule a screening appointment with a DSPS Counselor. Learning disabilities assessment is available on a limited basis. Please check with DSPS to determine the first available appointment for learning disabilities assessment.
