Some students simply do not qualify for accommodations in school or on entrance exams. This can happen because they lack a documentable history of disability, or because they present with “sub-clinical” issues (e.g., feeling down and unmotivated but not to the degree that psychological testing indicates clinical depression). So how can Dr. Gibbs help these students? We use their psychoeducational test data to create “Application Enhancement Letters,” which can boost chances of admission to private schools and colleges. These are letters that clinically justify why a student’s GPA may be lower than what they are capable of or why their entrance exam score was lower than it should have been. These letters directly reference your testing data to explicate weaknesses, highlight strengths, and will make schools move applications to the “in serious consideration” pile. Our carefully worded letters are respected by learning institutions because, not only are they properly formatted, they are always signed by a psychologist possessing a doctoral degree (PhD).
Though ADHD symptoms are easily recognizable in many people, they are not as apparent in high achieving college students who put in grueling hours to achieve their grades, leaving them beleaguered and taxed. These students often lack sleep and are very susceptible to developing anxiety and depressive disorders that compound their ADHD symptoms. For these students, academic accommodations are essential.
