Parents who have watched and worried over a child, sensing something wasn't "quite right" take an important step when they decide to have their child evaluated. Aside from learning whether their child has been "diagnosed" with a learning or school related issue, many parents struggle to understand what a psychoeducational evaluation is telling them about their child. How then can a parent advocate at the school if results are unclear? Please let me help! Learning all I can about a child is my passion and an absolute pleasure!
Psychoeducational evaluation can be used to measure: Intelligence (potential), Academic Achievement (current grade level), learning preferences/strengths/deficits, attention, behavior, personality, and social and emotional functioning. The key is to identify patterns of information - this is why conclusive diagnoses are not reached after administering only one test.
The process generally requires up to 20 hours (5-8 hrs face to face) and includes parent interview, testing session(s), formal report, and feedback session. Please call to schedule a free consultation - together we can determine which evaluation, time frame, and fee structure suits the needs of your child!
