Psychoeducational Evaluation

Our Psychoeducational Evaluation for children, adolescents, and college students provides an in-depth understanding of an individual’s learning profile.  This assessment identifies intellectual, academic and cognitive strengths and weaknesses, as well as specific learning disabilities.  Extensive recommendations for help and support are also provided.

When to Consider Evaluation

When your student is performing poorly in school despite his/her best efforts; struggling with homework, classwork, tests and quizzes; and/or performing poorly on standardized tests, it may be due to an underlying learning disability or weakness.  A Psychoeducational Evaluation will rule-in or rule-out a disability or weakness, as well as identify other possible causes.

This evaluation is also appropriate for students who are seeking accommodations for the SAT, ACT, or learning/academic support programs at the elementary, high school, or college level.  A current Psychoeducational Evaluation may be required in order to obtain these services, especially if it has been several years since the last assessment.
