Psycho-educational Assessments

Psycho-educational assessments are comprehensive evaluations that look at the whole person. These assessments are given to persons ages six to adult who are struggling in certain areas of academics and having difficulty retaining information, completing schoolwork, focusing, or organizing, and who may also be bright or gifted.  In addition, they may be showing signs of emotional distress, displaying difficulty in relationships, or exhibiting disruptive behavior.  Psycho-educational assessments are also required for diagnostic impressions and accommodations in school or for standardized testing, such as the SAT, LSAT, MCAT, etc.

The psycho-educational process involves an initial meeting with Amy and Jenny to gather relevant background information and determine the types of the testing that best fit the individual's needs. After testing is complete, feedback sessions are provided to discuss the findings and recommendations.  In addition, clear, comprehensive reports are written that include recommendations designed to address the needs and desires of individuals and families.  

Recommendations may include:
  • Multi-sensory strategies for lesson plans in all subject areas
  • Referrals to schools
  • Referrals to specialized professionals for tutoring, therapy, parenting support, medical consultation, occupational therapy, social skills groups, and other specialists as needed
  • Homework strategies
  • Focusing and organizing strategies for home, school, and work
  • Specific accommodations written for teachers, Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs), or additional standardized testing
  • Therapeutic goals that address social and emotional well-being
  • Resources for support organizations
  • Prioritizing recommendations for short and long-term success
