Bahamas Dyslexia Testing
I am available for Bahamas dyslexia testing to test students from the Bahamas including Marsh Harbor, Nassau, Freeport (Grand Bahama) and other surrounding Bahamian islands. I test for dyslexia, ADHD, and learning disabilities in math, writing, and all areas of reading. While most families travel from the Bahamas to Jupiter, Florida for the testing, I am available to travel to the Bahamas to test students.
Traveling to the Bahamas for dyslexia testing can be for one child but it often works well if you have two kids that need testing. I can travel to the Bahamian islands and test both students during the same weekend or during the summer. My testing fee remains the same but there is an air travel charge for transportation from West Palm Beach (Palm Beach International Airport) to the Bahamas.
Many parents find the travel charge is worthwhile since the child is often more comfortable having testing in a familiar setting. Additionally, the child does not experience any jet lag or other travel stresses that may impact his or her test performance. After all the slogan says, “It’s Better in the Bahamas” so why not dyslexia testing for your child right where you live?
If ADHD testing takes place in the Bahamas I use a neuropsychological test (NEPSY II), computerized tests, observation, as well as parent and teacher input. This ADHD evaluation process looks at ADHD from multiple perspectives and removes some of the subjectivity of just relying on teacher and parent observations and ratings to make a diagnosis.
If your child has dyslexia my office can provide support and specialized reading tutoring. My wife is a Barton Reading tutor and this program is done via the internet using an interactive program that keeps the instruction multi sensory. The Barton Reading and Spelling System is one of the best curriculum programs to use to help children with dyslexia overcome their dyslexia and become proficient readers.
If your child has ADHD, we offer coaching for teens with ADHD. Some upper elementary children and teens with ADHD meet with us for 30 minutes once per week or every other week so we can provide support and strategies.
I am a Barton certified dyslexia testing specialist as well as a Florida licensed school psychologist. If you’d like to discuss educational testing in the Bahamas call(561) 625-4125
