Psychoeducational Testing for Learning Disabilities
All the tutoring isn’t helping.
You’ve spent hundreds (maybe even thousands) for study aids, software, workbooks, tutors, doctors, and speech therapy. Not to mention all the hours using all of them. But grades aren’t getting any better. Sure…school and tests should be challenging, but not impossible. You, your child, and teachers are frustrated and feel like you’ve run out of options.
Psychoeducational testing could be the answer.
A psychoeducational evaluation assesses strengths and weakness in academic subjects (like reading, math, and writing), learning style, as well as visual and auditory attention, processing, concentration, and memory. This information helps determine whether a child or an adult has learning disorders that would qualify as learning disabilities, or if academic problems are related to another mental health condition.
A psychoeducational evaluation empowers you.
Detecting a learning disability can help you make decisions about schools, college, and academic placement. It also means that educators can develop a comprehensive and individualized educational plan based on areas of strength and weakness. These educational plans also let students access special interventions and accommodations during classroom tests, projects, and homework.
Psychoeducational testing isn’t just for children and teens.
Often advanced high school students, college and grad students, and professionals have undiagnosed learning disabilities. This can make taking high stakes standardized exams (e.g. FSAs, EOCs, PSAT, SAT, ACT, AP/IB/Cambridge exams, LSAT, MCAT, GMAT, GRE, and professional licensure board examinations) extremely difficult and discouraging after several attempts. Identifying learning disabilities in adults can help them secure extended time on these exams so they can perform their best. It can help them make inform choices about college majors and careers to pursue. These assessments also help employers provide tools and support needed for success in the workplace.
Don’t continue to struggle with learning disabilities.
