Child and Adolescent Psychoeducational Assessments
A psychoeducational assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of an individual's cognitive, academic, and social, emotional and behavioral functioning, typically used to diagnose learning disabilities, attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder, intellectual disabilities, and other conditions that may impact educational performance. The assessment involves a battery of tests including measures of cognitive and academic achievement, as well as an evaluation of the individual's educational history and social, emotional, and executive functioning. The results of the assessment can be used to develop an individualized education plan and to guide decisions about accommodations and support services in educational and other settings. The assessment process begins with a parent intake meeting, followed by two testing sessions which are typically two hours in length. Once testing is complete a detailed report will be written outlining the individual's strengths and areas of need, diagnostic information, and a detailed list of personalized recommendations for home and school. Results are shared with parents during a detailed feedback meeting.
