Psychoeducational Evaluations

Comprehensive evaluations for school-age children, adolescents, college students, and adults.

Psychoeducational Evaluations

Learning Disorders

Learning disorders are neurobiological and can impact our confidence and performance in the areas of reading, spelling, math, and writing. Comprehensive psychoeducational testing and accommodations can help close the gap in achievement for children and adults. 

  • Dyslexia is a difficulty in reading and spelling. Children with dyslexia often struggle with phonological awareness which can impact their reading fluency. 

  • Dyscalculia is a difficulty understanding and applying basic math concepts consistently. 

  • Dysgraphia is a graphomotor difficulty with written expression, most commonly seen in poor letter and word spacing.

ADHD

ADHD is a neurodevelopment disorder that may impact attention and concentration, hyperactivity and impulsivity, or both. The three types of ADHD (see below) can impact academic and work performance, emotional regulation, and daily functioning. ADHD often begins in childhood and continues throughout adulthood. Comprehensive ADHD testing may lead to  accommodations that can assist with functioning.  

  • ADHD, Predominately Inattentive Type 

  • ADHD, Predominately Hyperactive/Impulsive Type

  • ADHD, Combined Type

Psychoeducational Evaluation Process 

A psychoeducational evaluation consists of two 3-4 hour testing sessions. The evaluation typically assesses: 

  • ​IQ

  • Achievement 

  • Processing 

  • Memory 

  • Executive Functioning ​

  • Socio-emotional Functioning

Feedback and Consultation

After the evaluation, a 1-1.5 hour feedback session is scheduled to review significant findings from testing, as well as diagnoses (if applicable) and recommendations. A full diagnostic report will be sent to you 2-3 weeks after the feedback session. 

I am happy to offer continued support to assist with treatment planning and recommendations. With a completed Release of Information Form, this may include speaking with loved ones, employers, therapists, tutors, educators, and healthcare providers.
