Psychoeducational Evaluation

Psychoeducational Evaluation

A psychoeducational evaluation consists of a series of evidence-based intellectual, academic, executive functioning, and behavioral tests, a structured clinical interview, and review of school educational records that help to objectively clarify the breadth and severity of any specific learning differences or challenges in children. It helps to establish any Specific Learning Disorders, if indicated, and directs the appropriate specific accommodations recommended for the school to provide in helping the child be more successful in a school environment.
It includes a clinical interview with mental status examination, intellectual and academic testing, diagnosis, and academic recommendations/accommodations. Additional testing for ADHD or psychological problem areas could be added to the evaluation if these appear to be impacting academic performance.
