What is a Psychoeducational Evaluation?

A psychoeducational evaluation describes a set of procedures conducted by a trained professional that provides a detailed analysis of a child’s strengths and weaknesses. An evaluation may sometimes identify a diagnosable learning difference. It may also be conducted to determine the appropriateness of interventions or be used to guide educational placement decisions. Ultimately, the main purpose of a psychoeducational evaluation is to more fully understand a child’s overall functioning in order to determine what supports may be necessary for academic success.
