Cognitive Educational Evaluation/Learning Disabilty Assessment


Alternative Connections provides diagnostic testing for children and adults of all ages. A Cognitive Education Evaluation may be initiated by the parent, individual or recommended by a school.

What Can An Evaluation Do?

  • Can answer your questions about the learning problems that your or your child struggle on a daily basis in school, college or at work.
  • Can determine whether you need extra time to complete various work- related assignments or tests.
  • Will help identify specific cognitive problems and academic weaknesses that prevent you from achieving your goals at work or academic success in school.
  • Can determine your cognitive and academic strengths that you need to leverage to achieve success in school and get ahead at work.
  • Can determine your learning style and what type of instruction work best for the way you learn.
  • Various cognitive and academic strengths and weaknesses that underlie learning problems, possible learning disability, or simply minor difficulty learning certain subjects.
  • Will determine whether you or your child qualify for extra time on tests, such as High School Entrance Exam, SAT, or GRE.
  • Can determine levels of cognitive ability and academic skills; help to select an appropriate school, academic placement, and need for support services.
  • Determine the best instructional techniques; and determine the need for tutoring, remediation, enrichment, or advanced courses.

Introduction To Tutoring


There are a variety of reasons why students come to Alternative Connections. Many are in need of remediation, often working several years below grade level and unable to keep up their work in school. Some have significant learning issues that the mainstream schools cannot address. Some have behavioral or attentional problems that have been unsuccessfully treated with drugs. We encourage a drug free, holistic approach. Others are in need of an accelerated or a broader range of educational experiences.

Our tutors take pride in working successfully with all types of students and work with care and flexibility to meet each student's needs. The goal is to help each student recognize and work with their strengths, develop compensatory strategies, when necessary, and build up weaknesses to the best of their ability.

Is Home Schooling The Right Decision?

What is Interactive Metronome?


The IM program provides a structured, goal-oriented process that challenges the patient to synchronize a range of hand and foot exercises to a precise computer-generated reference tone heard through headphones. The patient attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor actions. A patented auditory-visual guidance system provides immediate feedback measured in milliseconds, and a score is provided.

Over the course of the treatment, patients learn to:

  • Focus and attend for longer periods of time
  • Increase physical endurance and stamina
  • Filter out internal and external distractions
  • Improve ability to monitor mental and physical actions as they are occurring
  • Agressively improve coordinated performance

Who Can Benefit From IM?

Patients diagnosed with:

  • Sensory Integration Disorder
  • ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Non-verbal Learning Disorder
  • Balance Disorders
