Diagnosing Learning Disorders:

Learning disabilities are traditionally diagnosed when significant discrepancies are found between or within cognitive and academic domains.  Qualitative diagnoses are also possible, and are based on more sophisticated interpretations of scores and of testing observations.  Typically, students are able to obtain formal academic accommodations only when formally diagnosed with learning disorders. 

Learning evaluations can be combined with personality measures in order to obtain a fuller emotional and cognitive profile of an individual.  This is especially useful when issues of motivation, mood, or temperament interfere with academic or professional progress.  Upon completion of a more global cognitive/emotional evaluation, general mental health diagnoses can typically be made.
