Psychoeducational evaluations are assessments that aim to evaluate a person’s learning and cognitive abilities, as well as their emotional and behavioral functioning. As a licensed psychologist and a certified school psychologist, I have extensive training and experience in conducting these types of evaluations.
The purpose of a psychoeducational evaluation is to identify any learning or developmental difficulties that may be impacting a person’s academic, behavioral or emotional functioning. This can include identifying learning disabilities such as dyslexia, attention problems, autism spectrum, developmental, or other conditions that may require special educational accommodations or support.
The evaluation process involves a variety of tests and assessments, including measures of cognitive ability, academic achievement, memory, attention, language skills, and emotional functioning. The results of the evaluation are used to develop a comprehensive understanding of the individual’s strengths and weaknesses, and to make recommendations for appropriate interventions or accommodations.
Overall, psychoeducational evaluations can be an important tool in helping identify possible barriers to educational and behavioral success, and develop a plan to help individuals achieve their full potential.
Some of my psychoeducational evaluation services include:
- Testing for learning disabilities, including dyslexia and dyscalculia
- IQ or cognitive testing
- Academic assessment
- Evaluation of attentional, behavioral and emotional functioning
- Measurement of executive functioning skills as a basis for goal-setting and skills development
