Program 1

Educational Evaluation Program

The Pat and Don Williamson Evaluation Center’s Director of Diagnostic Services and five part-time diagnosticians, part-time speech-language pathologist, and part-time consulting psychologist provide comprehensive diagnostic educational evaluations for children ages birth through adults. TLCNT’s evaluation is distinguished by its strengths-based approach to learning and helping clients succeed. Each evaluation uses cognitive, achievement, visual-motor, attention, and executive function (self-awareness and control) assessments to identify the unique profile of strengths and weaknesses that impact a person’s learning. This information can be used to determine whether a student has a learning disability, ADHD, speech/language difficulties, or developmental delays. Specific accommodations are provided for the classroom as well as strategies to follow for learning success. Each evaluation incorporates the research of All Kinds of Minds Institute and other scientists in the field of brain research. TLCNT has given over 2,500 evaluations. To further address learning needs, TLCNT offers educational consultations, dyslexia tutoring, speech therapy, Brain Gym, aptitude testing for college and career direction (TLCNT is a Highlands Ability Battery affiliate), and college coaching.

Brain-Based Training for Educators

TLCNT offers brain-based professional development for educators to improve their skills in teaching and understanding all learners in their classrooms, including those with learning differences and disabilities. One-day seminars for educator professional development feature internationally and nationally-known educators and speakers. During each summer for the past 16 years, TLCNT has delivered the research-based Schools Attuned to All Kinds of Minds (SATAKOM) Professional Development Program to educators in Texas. SATAKOM teaches education professionals how to recognize, understand, and manage student differences in learning. SATAKOM immerses educators in the neurocognitive constructs of learning: language, attention, memory, neuromotor function, spatial ordering, temporal-sequential ordering, higher-order cognition, and social cognition. TLCNT has trained more than 4,200 educators.

Adult Services

Adult Services serves the needs of adults for whom low-literacy is a barrier to education or employment. Adult Services works in partnership with community agencies to support individuals and to strengthen programs in Tarrant County by providing professional development, resources, instructional support, and assessment. In addition, TLCNT works to serve adults in education and employment through strategic partnerships with public agencies such as Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County, Fort Worth Independent School District, and Tarrant County College District as well as community partnerships with the Tarrant Literacy Coalition and Literacy Connexus. These partnerships are dedicated to creating and/or expanding opportunities to provide direct services to adults who are struggling with learning or literacy issues.
