Do you have questions about your child’s academic capabilities and learning style? A full psychoeducational evaluation will provide insight and offer recommendations for how to best support them in an educational environment.
Unlocking a child’s learning potential
Undetected learning differences and related issues, such as ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, or others, can be the reason why children struggle in school. A psychoeducational evaluation at the Learning Lab Assessment Center identifies a student’s strengths and challenges, and results in individualized recommendations for supports and strategies that can be implemented at home and at school.
Parents may consider assessment if:
Your child’s reading, writing, and/or math skills are not developing at expected levels for their age and grade.
Your child’s academic performance does not seem to match their ability.
If school is stressful/ovewhelming and causes excessive anxiety, frustration, or conflict at home.
If your child’s standardized testing scores are low or surprising.
If homework lingers long past the expected completion time every night.
If it has been nearly 3 years (or more than 3 years) since your child’s last psychoeducational evaluation.
What is a Psychoeducational Evaluation?
A psychoeducational evaluation is a battery of standardized and interactive tests that provides deep insights into how an individual thinks in key areas – from problem solving to academic skills, and social and emotional functioning – and to determine overall learning strengths and weaknesses. We see clients as young as age 3 through adults. Click here to learn about our adult assessment services.
An evaluation may identify a diagnosable learning difference which could be the cause of a problem. It may also help determine appropriate learning strategies and interventions, or guide educational placement decisions. Ultimately, its main purpose is to help our clients more fully understand their overall functioning and determine what supports may be necessary for promoting their academic and life success.
