How would this help your child?



What is a psychoeducational evaluation?
This is a comprehensive assessment of a student's learning strengths and weaknesses. Our process involves 4-6 hours of testing, including a cognitive (intelligence) battery, complete academic achievement testing, and a variety of auditory and visual perceptual processing tests. Screening for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is also involved when there are concerns regarding attention, concentration and behavior.

How will it help my child?
This evaluation identifies a student's specific learning strengths and weaknesses and will explain how these impact school performance. With this information, teachers, tutors and specialists are able to work with the recommendations to remediate weaknesses, alleviate frustrations and barriers to learning and to increase school success. Our goal is to help youngsters recognize their strengths in order to increase their self-esteem and sense of empowerment.

Who would benefit from this evaluation?
Essentially, every student would benefit from such an evaluation to understand his or her unique learning profile. However, since this is often not feasible, it is most beneficial for students who are struggling to achieve to their potential in school, and thus more information about their abilities is needed.

The following includes some of the reasons for having your child evaluated:
  • Poor grades or inconsistent performance
  • Difficulties with reading, spelling or written language expression
  • Frustration with homework and over-reliance on parents for assistance
  • Poor test grades despite seemingly adequate preparation; unable to complete tests within time limits
  • Organizational weaknesses
  • Difficulty staying focused on schoolwork, in class or during homework time
