Psycho Educational Evaluation

  • Do you wonder if your child has a learning disability?
  • Has someone recommended you have your child tested?
  • Do you have a child who scores well on tests, but doesn’t do their homework?
  • Do you have a child who finishes their homework, but can’t remember to turn it in?
  • Does your child’s teacher talk about the potential of your child “if they could only…”?

Psycho Educational Evaluation

If you answered yes to any of these questions then a psycho educational evaluation might be right for you!

The Psycho Educational Evaluation goes beyond in-school testing to formally diagnose any potential learning or neurodevelopmental disorders and includes cognitive, academic, processing, social-emotional, and preliminary neuropsychological testing. It will cover all learning disabilities in reading, writing, math, cognitive processing, language, and visual motor integration. The report will provide recommendations for home, school, employment, and the community. The assessments selected are standardized, culturally responsive, and neuroaffirming with the client, not a diagnosis, at the center of the process. An observation is included within 15 miles of the clinic.

The decision to obtain a formal evaluation usually follows a period of ups and downs, uncertainty, and relentless worrying. Some individuals try a number of therapies and other types of assessments in hope that something less serious might be the cause because the idea of potentially having a disorder can sound so stigmatizing and limiting. Some individuals intuitively know there is something going on, but those around them or their school just don’t seem as concerned.

As a parent to a now adult autistic daughter and as a 2e (twice exceptional) individual myself, I recognize the commitment one embarks upon when deciding it’s time to schedule an evaluation. This is a tremendous commitment of time, resources, and hope. Rather than a series of prescriptive hoops to jump through in order to obtain a diagnosis and report, I view testing as a therapeutic process in and of itself, regardless if you are 5 or 55. The evaluation can be a journey of self-discovery through which the child, adolescent, or adult construes a new, more-informed, and forward looking narrative about themselves. The process is compassionate and guided, leading to potentially life changing growth for clients. The process culminates with an hour and a half long discussion, followed by a report approximately two weeks later, and then another discussion to support the internal processes experienced by the individual and family, and to guide the subsequent steps moving forward.
