Psycho-Educational Assessment & Diagnosis

A psycho-educational assessment is often initiated in response to concerns reported at school level about an individual’s cognitive skills, learning, attention and/or behavior. Psycho-educational assessments typically evaluate thinking/reasoning skills, underlying processing skills (i.e., memory, attention, executive functioning), academic achievement (i.e., math, reading, writing), social/emotional functioning and behavior.

The goal of a psycho-educational assessment is to identify the students’ strengths and weaknesses in all of these areas in order to determine appropriate interventions and/or support. Diagnosis is often the gatekeeper to services in elementary, high school, colleges and university.

Process Steps:

1. Intake (telephone)

2. Clinical Interview with parents, child/adolescent or young adult and teacher when applicable (on site/phone for teacher)

3. Testing (on site)

4. Questionnaire completion (parent/teacher)

5 . Scoring and formulation

6 . Feedback to parents and/or young adult
