  • Psycho Educational Evaluations

    Every person is different. Every human brain is different. All brains have parts that don’t work as well as others, and other brains have parts that don’t work very well at all. For all children, it is important to determine what these strengths and weaknesses are so that they can be taught well and receive the appropriate accommodations and support for academic and life success.

    One of the ways to do this is with a psychoeducational assessment. A psychoeducational assessment is one-on-one and uses a variety of tools to develop a complete perspective of your child’s academic skills, social emotional behavioral skills, adaptive skills and cognitive abilities. It is important to determine not just how much your child has learned, but how he/she learns and goes about the task of solving problems.

    Psychoeducational assessments are conducted by a certified school psychologist and in addition to showing how a child learns, can provide a diagnosis of a learning disability, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), developmental disability, and identify any other social/emotional/behavioral or psychological problems.
