Dr. Lori Pyter, Psy.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Dr. Pyter provides testing & evaluation services so you can understand why the challenges are occurring. Testing can determine learning style, intellectual ability, academic level, and to confirm a diagnosis. Once testing data clarifies the profile then a targeted treatment plan or educational strategy can be thoughtfully developed. With this knowledge you can take active steps to make progress rather than guessing about what's happening or what to do.
This type of evaluation is designed to clarify how an individual learns & processes information. This can include testing for intellectual ability, memory, executive functioning (working memory, attention, planning & organization), processing speed, academic status, learning style, reasoning ability, visual motor skills, problem solving & language processing. It is designed to understand the connection between brain functions and behavior & to use that information to guide interventions.
This type of evaluation is designed to assess mental health status & to provide diagnostic clarity. It can include testing for emotional development, behavioral functioning, intelligence, thought patterns, social skills & personality style. The results are used to guide treatment, to reduce symptoms & improve functioning in all areas of life.
This type of evaluation is designed to clarify academic status and to determine if there is a learning disability & what type. This process will determine why you or your child are experiencing academic struggles. The results are used to develop a plan of action within the middle, high school or college system for learning support or accommodations. The results are used to match expectations to an individual's actual strength & weaknesses.
All evaluations begin with an interview to create a personalized plan. This is followed by a testing date and then a feedback session. A document with the testing results and a specific plan of action will be provided. Abbreviated reports can be also provided for school systems, physicians, psychiatrists, the ACT Board or treatment providers.
