Psychoeducational Evaluations at SMPG
Psychoeducational Evaluations are typically conducted when a student (child or adult) is exhibiting struggles, which are impacting academic or occupational performance. This type of evaluation will help the individual, parents, and/or teachers learn about an individual's particular learning profile. Learning strengths and weaknesses are examined, and the identification and diagnosis of possible learning disabilities (such as reading, math, and writing) is discussed.
This type of evaluation is also conducted when there is a need for academic accommodations, such as extended time in class and on standardized testing. This evaluation includes testing in the following areas: intelligence (IQ test), academic achievement (reading, math, and writing), attention, cognitive efficiency, language processing, visual processing, memory and learning, as well as social and emotional testing. Information from multiple informants, such as parents, teachers, therapists, and employers, is also requested in order to obtain a more comprehensive history of the individual. Once the evaluation is concluded, the student will be provided with a very comprehensive report detailing test results, diagnostic information, as well as recommendations for the student, parents, and teachers.
