PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EDUCATIONAL EVALUATIONS

PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EDUCATIONAL EVALUATIONS:I provide comprehensive psychoeducational assessment to families and their children (k-12th grade). An evaluation might be warranted if you suspect that your child’s development might not be typical, he/she might be experiencing learning or behavior difficulties at school, or if their teacher might be concerned with their progress and overall development. A comprehensive evaluation will include:

  • Interviews with the family and children
  • Interviews with the teachers and school personnel
  • Observations of the child in the school (if needed)
  • Review of educational and other relevant records and history
  • Individual testing (intelligence, academic, behavior, other)

A final psychological report with findings and recommendations will be offered to the family.
