Wiggins Educational Evaluations Specializes In:
Is your child feeling bored or not challenged at school? Does she use an advanced vocabulary? Is he a perfectionist? Does she have exceptional abilities in mathematics? These are just a few signs that your child may be gifted. Wiggins Educational Evaluations helps parents and schools determine giftedness with an IQ test summarized in a psychoeducational report prepared specifically for schools and parents to determine if a child should receive gifted services.
Does your child struggle with basic reading or math skills? Does he have poor grades despite putting forth a good effort? Does she have difficulty learning basic letter-sounds? Does he avoid reading aloud? Do you find that your child may remember something one day, then forget it the next? Any of these traits may suggest that your child could have a learning disability. Wiggins Educational Evaluations investigates learning disabilities with a comprehensive evaluation designed not only to answer questions about why your child is struggling, but also design interventions for schools and parents to use to help solve your child’s problem and determine if an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) / Exceptional Education Services (ESE) are warranted.
With much light being shined on behaviors commonly exhibited by children within the autistic spectrum in recent years, many concerned parents are eager to confirm or rule out ASD. The spectrum has a wide range of ways that it effects people from more mild ASD (formerly called Asperger’s Disorder) to more severe cases. Some behaviors common for children with ASD are difficulties with social skills and making friends, preferring to be alone, difficulty understanding others’ feelings, preoccupations with specific topics of interest or objects, difficulty with any changes in routine, and sensitivity or strong reactions to specific sounds, textures, smells, or tastes. With a comprehensive ASD evaluation, Wiggins Educational Evaluations seeks to provide parents with clarity and guidance regarding their children’s condition, how to manage the behaviors at home, and how to support the children at school. Children found to be within the autistic spectrum often require 504 plans or Individualized Education Plans (IEP) to help students receive the support that they need to be successful both in and out of school.
Testing for Attentional Concerns or Hyperactivity / Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):
Does your child make careless mistakes, have difficulty remembering things and following instructions? Does she have trouble staying organized? Is your child fidgety or moving constantly? Does she talk excessively or tend to say the wrong thing at the wrong time? Does he act without thinking? These are some basic traits common for children with ADHD. Our evaluation helps parents better understand their children’s behaviors while providing valuable information to help guide parents, pediatricians, and schools towards appropriate treatments and solutions. This evaluation often leads to section 504 plans for children at school to provide classroom and testing accommodations.
Do you have difficulty being successful completing assignments or exams within the time allowed? Do you struggle with mathematics word problems? Do you find that you have poor grades despite putting forth a good effort? Have you ever suspected that you may have a problem staying focused and may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)? Wiggins Educational Evaluations provides a comprehensive evaluation to help determine if there is a learning disability or ADHD that may warrant accommodations provided by your college such as extended time on exams, class notes, or testing materials provided in different formats. This evaluation is also available for those seeking accommodations for College Board exams.
Child Advocacy / Parent Consultations:
Getting your child what he needs at school can be a very frustrating and confusing process. At Wiggins Educational Evaluations, we consider it a public service to support parents. With fifteen years of experience within the public schools, we will help you navigate the system and help you get what your child needs to be successful at school. This may come in the form of providing guidance about what interventions your child should be receiving at school, if testing or an IEP may be appropriate, or if his current IEP is adequate. Sometimes just speaking with someone with experience within the public school system is all you need to get your child what he or she needs. We are happy to do this for FREE because helping kids is our business!
