Psycho-Educational Assessments are provided for a wide range of presenting problems for children and adolescents (e.g., concerns regarding: social skills; activity level, emotional self-control; delayed cognitive or daily life skills; difficulties learning subjects at school; organization skills). Parents may be concerned about their child’s emotional self-control or difficulties with learning.
We strive to identify areas of strength as well as examine areas of deficit or difficulty. Sometimes parents want to know if diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Learning Disability, or Autistic Spectrum Disorder are appropriate for their child. We take care to provide an extensive assessment that includes individual assessment with the child, interviews or input from parents, teachers and other relevant sources, as well as historical information.
When needed, we will consult with an Occupational Therapist or Speech Language Pathologist for supplemental information or assessment, to provide valuable recommendations and accurate diagnosis. We want to work with you to provide the best outcomes for your family.
Assessments begin with an initial meeting between the Therapist and parents. We want to get to know your concerns for your child as well as their strengths. We then meet with your child for two to four sessions (ranging from an hour to two hours in length). Following the assessment, we meet with parents again to provide feedback and then follow-up with a Psycho-Educational Assessment Report that meets your approval.
