With WISC we establish the IQ, with LPAD we look for the subject’s propensity to change
The Learning Potential Assessment Method (LPAD) is a dynamic evaluation approach that aims to detect the individual’s modifiability and learning potential in order to identify useful operational indications for intervention.
This approach provides a framework of reference on how a person learns, thinks, thinks, what are the strengths and weaknesses of his cognitive functioning and what are the possibilities of developing his learning potential.
Unlike static tests, LPAD places greater importance on the process (as a task is solved) than on the result (the thing), considering, in addition to strictly cognitive aspects, also the emotional and motivational factors that intervene in learning.
The examiner does not remain outside the evaluation, but actively intervenes in the report by structuring modalities and conditions that make it possible to increase cognitive efficiency.
Dynamic evaluation of learning potential is considered by field professionals and researchers to be a promising diagnostic procedure, revealing important aspects of an individual’s functioning that cannot be highlighted through standard evaluation procedures.
The training of our professionals allows us to make a DYNAMICAL ASSESSMENT, which uses different tools: in addition to those of Prof. Feuerstein, those of the Tzuriel Method and Waldon approach are also used. More tools allow us to better analyse the learning potential, regardless of age and difficulty. Last but not least, our team has been working for years under the supervision of Prof. Lebeer, an expert in Dynamic Evaluation and with a lot of experience with children of different nationalities.
