A psychoeducational assessment can provide useful information regarding child’s functioning and needs in the following areas:
Learning support needs
Assessment arrangements (e.g., extended examination time)
Individual learning style and intellectual/academic dispositions
Assessment of intellectual giftedness
Understanding a child’s unique profile of strengths and needs allows identifying strategies to improve academic achievement. This awareness can also serve to reduce child’s level of frustration related to learning, while at the same time increasing motivation and academic, self – confidence.
Psychoeducational assessment is a comprehensive and integrative process that involves the following:
If a diagnosis of specific learning problem (e.g., dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD/ADD) can be formulated, appropriate educational program accommodations will be documented and recommended for in school individual assistance and standardized examinations accommodations e.g., extra time, use of computer, additional breaks.
