Psychoeducational Assessments with Children and Adults
A psychoeducational assessment typically involves evaluation of cognitive functioning (intelligence testing), psychological processes related to learning (memory, auditory processing, visual-motor integration, etc.), academic achievement, and social/emotional development. An assessment includes administering standardized tests, gathering information regarding developmental and school history, and evaluation of current functioning through interviews, surveys, and questionnaires.
Most assessments will include a measure of intelligence, academic achievement, various psychological processes impacting learning (such as memory, phonological processing, graphomotor skills, executive functioning). In addition, we examine potential social emotional, and behavioural challenges (such as mood, anxiety, attention/hyperactivity, peer relationships, self-esteem).
