PSYCHOEDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT

Intellectual Tests: These tests are often thought of as mini cognitive “games.” Some ask questions about verbal knowledge, and some are designed to assess non-verbal reasoning (e.g. visual-spatial skill and pattern matching skills). These tasks also determine how well a child can maintain focus, and whether they are an auditory or visual learner. Finally, a person’s performance on these tasks can help diagnose the presence of clinical conditions like ADHD.

Academic Tests: These tests determine a child’s fundamental skill level, fluency, and applied skills in areas of reading, math, and written language. By looking at a student’s academic skill level compared to a sample of same-aged students, we can determine the presence of learning deficits and how other factors, such as one’s attention and mood, affect academic performance.

Emotional Tests: Attending school is inherently stressful, especially for kids with attention and learning issues. Often, these intensely stressful periods can cause debilitating anxieties or awaken predispositions to depression. Hence, our emotional measures can determine the presence of negative emotional states that may be affecting your child’s cognitive and academic functioning.

Personality Tests: One’s general attitudes about life, such as their personal expectations for success, can positively motivate a person or, alternately, create fears of failure that may become detrimental to performance. Fortunately, our assessment battery subtypes personality style and can help us determine attitudes that are either helping or hindering success.

TYPES OF TESTS PERFORMED

Every service we provide starts with a psychoeducational assessment battery. A psychoeducational assessment (also known as psychoeducational “testing” or “evaluation”) uses standardized “tests” to investigate an individual’s intellectual (cognitive), academic (achievement), emotional (mood), and personality (attitude) functioning and how these domains affect academic performance, test taking, and overall psychological health. A full battery psychoeducational evaluation performed by a licensed psychologist is required to apply for any academic accommodations.

ADHD IN COLLEGE STUDENTS

IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED

Though ADHD symptoms are easily recognizable in many people, they are not as apparent in high achieving college students who put in grueling hours to achieve their grades, leaving them beleaguered and taxed. These students often lack sleep and are very susceptible to developing anxiety and depressive disorders that compound their ADHD symptoms. For these students, academic accommodations are essential.
