Psychological Evaluation

 

If your child’s teachers, tutor, or other educational specialist has suggested a psychological evaluation for your child, you may be wondering what that is, why it is being recommended, and how it may help. Psychological evaluations provide valuable learning information specific to your child. It is a multi-method process covering cognitive, academic, social, emotional, and attentional processing and their strengths and weaknesses. If your child is struggling, this helps to give valuable insight about how to help them be their most successful self. In addition to teacher and educational input, if you notice your child struggling significantly, a psychological evaluation can offer welcomed insight to guide and inform important educational considerations. You will receive a comprehensive report that details important recommendations for school and home interventions that will help your child develop to their fullest potential.

What is a Psychological Evaluation?

A psychological evaluation is a group of assessments given to students to better understand their learning profile. It gives valuable information on how people learn, and their strengths and weaknesses. A psych-ed evaluation has four different areas that provide context: norm referenced or standardized assessments, interviews, behavioral observations and informal assessment procedures.

 

Additional assessments, should they be deemed necessary, are available. They include assessments measuring neuropsychological deficits fitting within the school neuropsychological conceptual model of assessment.
