Diagnostic Center


Welcome to the Diagnostic Center at Currey Ingram Academy. We provide psychoeducational, speech/language and occupational therapy evaluations for students from public and private schools across the country. The Center is located at Currey Ingram Academy, a K-12 college-preparatory school for students with learning differences. It is important to note that students are evaluated as young as age three, and the vast majority of students evaluated at the Diagnostic Center go on or return to schools other than Currey Ingram Academy.

Who We Are and Our Approach
Diagnostic Center team members have a variety of experiences in clinical and school psychology, child development, test administration, and OT and speech/language assessment and intervention. We are committed to conducting comprehensive assessments that go beyond simply reporting test scores. Instead, our goal is to get to know each child as thoroughly as possible and to produce a report that fully explores the child's learning challenges and strengths. This helps us point a clear path toward effective interventions and strategies for each unique child.
