What is a Psychoeducational Evaluation
A psychoeducational evaluation is a standardized assessment which examines the cognitive, academic, attentional, and psychological functioning of school-age children. This evaluation explores multiple areas of academic (i.e., reading, writing, mathematics) and cognitive functioning (i.e., intellectual functioning, processing speed, attention/concentration, etc.). This evaluation outlines the academic strengths and weaknesses of the student. This type of evaluation is appropriate for any student, whether in pre-school or in college.
This is the type of evaluation used to identify problems such as ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, math disorder, nonverbal learning disability, processing speed delay, receptive/expressive language disorder, as well as the need for academic accommodations and/or compensatory strategies in school and on standardized tests (eg: ACT, SAT, LSAT, etc)
