PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL TESTING

Knowledge is the key to unlocking potential and opening doors to success. To get started down the road to a more rewarding life, you need to be able to identify strengths as well as any specific challenges that may stand in your way. Psychological Evaluations give you answers to these questions and serves as your map to be your best.

 

Psychoeducational testing is often referred to as psychological assessment or psychological testing. The purpose of this evaluation is to gain a comprehensive understanding about the way a person learns and to determine an individual’s current level of academic and emotional functioning. These tests are most typically conducted when an individual is struggling in school or is having difficulty with test taking.

 

A Psychoeducational Evaluation is often conducted in order to determine whether a specific learning or other disability (e.g., ADHD, Dyslexia or Nonverbal Learning Disability) may be impacting significantly on a student’s academic performance. For instance, the presence of a learning disability, attention deficit disorder, or emotional disorder can result in a great deal of academic frustration and inability for a student to perform at his/her level of innate potential. For example, it has been estimated that 15 to 20% of students are learning disabled. A learning disability is diagnosed when assessment results reveal a significant discrepancy (difference) between a student’s scores on achievement tests (in reading, mathematics, and/or written language) and his/her educational expectancy range (based upon age, educational background, and intelligence.)

 

In addition to determining whether a student has a specific disability that impacts upon learning, plainly stated a Psychoeducational evaluation provides a good indication of how a student learns best (i.e., his/her learning style) as well as individual strengths and weaknesses. This information is then used as a guide for making recommendations about which teaching, remediation, and compensatory strategies will be most effective for a student to succeed. Once the teacher, parent, and student are empowered with this knowledge, they can make adjustments in order to maximize the student’s learning potential.
