Psychoeducational Evaluation and Consultation

I provide comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation and consultation to assess cognitive, academic, and social, emotional, and behavioral functioning in children, adolescents, and young adults.

A comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation can uncover the following:

  • Learning disabilities: Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and Nonverbal Learning Disorder (NVLD)/Developmental Visual Spatial Disorder (DVSD).
  • Social/Emotional/Behavioral difficulties: Attention Hyperactivity Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety, Depression, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and other mental health issues.
  • Dyslexia Screenings are offered for students in K4 – first semester of first grade to determine if a student is at-risk for Dyslexia.

Please contact me for a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to further discuss my services.

How long will the psychoeducational evaluation take?

The evaluation typically takes eight hours of individually administered testing given across two days. However, if your child needs frequent breaks due to anxiety, sensory issues, or significant difficulty sustaining their attention; or is very gifted; additional time may be required. However, I work hard to develop a rapport with your child in order to to motivate them, make them laugh, and help reduce their anxiety so that extra time is not needed. My testing sessions are very relaxed and fun and I often have children, adolescents, and young adults who want to come back for more testing!
