Educational or Psychoeducational Assessment is used to evaluate a child or adult's intellectual abilities, academic achievements, learning potential, identify giftedness, diagnose or rule out learning difficulties and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD / ADD), and to evaluate the need for academic
or occupational accommodations. The Educational or Neuropsychologist should provide
a thorough evaluation of each of these areas as well as a screening or evaluation of
a child's or adult's psychological functioning. Assessing psychological factors that relate
to learning is necessary to determine whether factors other than learning disorders or
ADHD are responsible for learning problems.
An Educational or Psychoeducational Assessment identifies problems such as a Reading Disorder
or Math Disorder, Disorder of Written Expression, Auditory Processing Disorder, ADHD / ADD,
executive functioning disorder, processing disorder, and others. These types of evaluations
are also conducted for kindergarten / school readiness and private school entry, as well as
to obtain test accommodations for college, graduate school, law school, or medical school
entrance exams (ACT, SAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT).
