Psycho-Educational Testing

Signs that a psycho-educational evaluation is needed for your child

  • Your child continues to struggle greatly and consistently in certain areas despite classroom accommodations/additional help being provided
  • Your child has a progressively worsening attitude toward school (e.g. a complete loss of interest in school as a whole or the belief that he is “bad at school”)
  • Persistently disruptive behavior in class, and/or a failure to learn basic intellectual, social, or behavioral skills (as appropriate for his age group).

Purpose of a psycho-educational evaluation

Psycho-educational testing is designed to eliminate the guessing game and identify the root cause of poor academic performance in children and teens.  This assessment can specifically define both your child’s strengths and his areas of weakness, allowing the strengths to be amplified and the weaknesses to be targeted and overcome. For many children, having a psycho-educational assessment performed is the first step toward not only securing a diagnosis (i.e., Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), but also accessing a range of timely interventions and support programs.

Components of a psycho-educational evaluation

  • Cognitive processing abilities (including logical reasoning, processing speed, memory, attention, and executive functioning).
  • Current level of academic knowledge in various subject areas such as reading, writing, and math.
  • Screening for social, behavioral, and emotional functioning.
