Psycho-educational Assessments

Psycho-educational assessment involves a comprehensive assessment of cognitive and academic functioning, as well as an evaluation of various information processing skills essential in learning. All children learn and process information differently; psycho-educational assessments help determine their unique strengths and difficulties. This allows us to determine what aspects may be interfering with their ability to learn or functioning in different areas of our lives.

Psycho-educational assessments help identify the following:

  • IQ
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD / ADD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Giftedness
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Cognitive Difficulties or Developmental Delay
  • Language Delays & Impairments
