If you are the parent of a child who is struggling at school or not reaching their full potential; or if you are an adult requiring accommodations at college , university or in the workplace, our Psychoeducational Assessment will help us determine the cause of these difficulties and will provide clear recommendations with how to proceed and succeed.
To help diagnose and define a person's Learning Disability, we administer a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment. The psychoeducational assessment is comprised of a battery of tests, which include IQ, academic and memory tests. These tests assist with determining if individuals have a learning disability. Clinical interviews are conducted and comprise an integral part of the assessment. Additionally, questionnaires are completed to provide information about an individual’s functioning at home and at school.
These assessments help define individual learning styles and provide insight to those working with an individual about his or her learning disabilities. Psychoeducational assessments help determine the services required to enhance learning during school hours. They become an essential part of developing an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for students or determining what accommodations may be sought in post-secondary educational institutions or the workplace. Gathering the person’s history is an important and essential part of the assessment process.
Psychoeducational assessments also help to diagnose Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Individuals with ADHD may show persistent symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and overactivity, and may benefit from proper treatment and management. ADHD may be further categorized into three sub-types: hyperactive type, inattentive type and combined type.
