Assessments

What is a psychoeducational assessment?

A psychoeducational assessment is a comprehensive evaluation conducted by a psychologist to assess an individual’s cognitive and academic abilities. The primary purpose of a psychoeducational assessment is to investigate the nature of the client’s challenges so that informed decisions regarding appropriate educational programming can be made.

It is essential to conduct these assessments using a variety of tools and methods to ensure accurate and comprehensive results. This process helps educators, parents, and other professionals better understand an individual’s learning profile and formulate appropriate strategies to facilitate their academic success and overall well-being.
