About Brain Learning

Our Vision is to transform the outdated assessment process from “Is the individual smart?” to “What is the individual smart at?”

Our Mission is to serve children, adolescents, and families with the best possible assessment and treatment using psychological and educational science. Our objective approach to assessing individuals with learning problems is done with care and attention to detail in order to support the individual’s goals, talents, and challenges.

At Brain Learning we utilize a “strengths-based” approach to all assessments.  This means that we focus our evaluations on discovering your child’s unique strengths and talents.  We believe that all children can learn and the goal of our assessments is to uncover the conditions, strategies, and environments kids need in order to build on their strengths and learn.  Assessment involves direct and indirect methods such as testing with our professional staff in a 1:1 setting, careful review of educational and (where appropriate) medical records, interviewing people who work with your student, gathering data, and observing your student in school. We will take the time to listen to you and understand your philosophy for your child. 

Our team is knowledgeable about cutting edge assessment research and practice, ensuring your student is properly assessed.  We strive to communicate the results and recommendations of our assessments in a way parents and teachers can easily understand.
