Psychoeducational Testing Services

If your child is struggling in school, a psychoeducational assessment can provide a deeper understanding of their learning profile, strengths, and challenges.

Psychoeducational assessment consists of a battery of psychological tests used to analyze the process underlying your child’s performance. Psychoeducational testing can be used to detect learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, conduct disorder, dyslexia, anxiety, depression, and more.

You May Consider Assessment If:

  • Your child’s reading, writing, and/or math skills are not developing at expected levels for their age and grade.
  • School is stressful/overwhelming and causes excessive anxiety, frustration, or conflict at home.
  • Your child’s academic performance does not seem to match their ability.
  • Homework lingers long past the expected completion time every night.
  • Your child's teachers express consistent concerns.
  • Your child’s standardized testing scores are low or surprising.
  • It has been nearly 3 years (or more than 3 years) since your child’s last psychoeducational assessment.

What can psychoeducational testing tell me about my child?

Psychoeducational testing is helpful to better understand your child's learning style as indicated by his/her information processing strengths and weaknesses.

For example, your child may have a strength in visual processing but a weakness in auditory processing. This would indicate that he or she likely will learn better when information is presented in writing or pictures.

Testing also can tell you how your child is progressing academically and if there are gaps in his/her academic skills. This type of information is invaluable for educational planning.

What to do if my pediatrician gave my child a diagnosis of Autism? Is that enough to receive services?

Depending on your insurance you may need to receive a formal diagnosis by administering a psychoeducational or psychological evaluation by a licensed psychologist. We are trained and use the ADOS which is a more objective way of identifying whether your child does indeed meet the diagnosis of Autism.
