We provide formal Psychoeducational Assessments for children and adolescents. These assessments involve the examination of cognitive and academic functioning, as well as various information processing skills essential to learning (e.g., memory, processing speed). Our standard Psychoeducational Assessments can help identify learning disabilities, and also include basic screening for ADHD, mental health concerns, and adaptive skills deficits, struggles that are sometimes associated with cognitive and academic difficulties. Our standard assessments can also be extended to more comprehensively examine these and other areas of functioning (e.g., personality). The results of Psychoeducational Assessments can guide practical recommendations for supporting learning at school and at home. All assessments include the production of a written report that can be used in the school system to assist in the development of an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
