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.

Thank you for the consultation and wonderful service. We were very anxious about getting our daughter tested for gifted placement.
Dr. Cherwony, you made our experience an easy and valuable one. As promised, you spent extensive time
with us helping to determine the best school placement for our daughter.
The feedback we were given was worth every penny!
Thanks again. - Marie D
Dr. Cherwony, you have been an angel in my life. When I first met you at my pre-surgical bariatric evaluation, you told me that food was my addiction and to think about what I was trying to hide from. Your words rang true for me after my surgery and then I realized I needed to see you.
I want to thank you deeply for all your compassion and support during my journey to health and wellness. I can't believe how
much you have taught me. - Lindsay C
My only regret was that I waited 2 months before starting to see Dr. Cherwony. I struggled with depression and loads of guilt following the birth of my first child. It was not how I had expected it to be. It was the most devastating time for me. Thank you so much Dr. C for helping me to understand and deal with my PPD and insomnia, and for helping my family to deal better with myself. - SR
