Psychoeducational Evaluations

A Psychoeducational Evaluation can be a powerful tool for understanding and advocacy. By providing a thorough assessment of cognitive, academic and social-emotional domains, the evaluation results deepen parents’ understanding of their child so that they can make more informed decisions about their child’s future. When shared with school staff and outside support providers, the evaluation can also serve as a bridge between the child and the support services that he or she needs. For older adolescents and college students, a psychoeducational evaluation can help them understand their own strengths and challenges and how to advocate for themselves in an educational setting.
