Psychoeducational Testing

COVID 19 Update: Our psychologists and neuropsychologists are providing evidence-based tele assessment per the American Psychological Association and the National Academy of Neuropsychology guidelines. Contact us to learn more at 301 581 1120.

Psychoeducational testing draws upon the latest research about brain function in order to inform educational interventions (everything from school placement to what type of reading instruction will be effective). The recommendations from psychoeducational testing are informed by the science of learning, brain development, and educational interventions. We combine neuropsychological depth with evidence-based educational recommendations to ensure that our reports are both comprehensive and useful. Psychoeducational testing yields a comprehensive study of the individual’s cognitive performance. Test data provide an action plan for addressing the student’s educational needs.  In our practice, we pride ourselves on including personalized, evidence-based educational  recommendations based on current research in education and neuropsychology.

Most importantly, you or your child will always work exclusively with your Doctoral level, Licensed Psychologist, never a grad student or technician. We believe in highly personalized care.

We have a wide variety of tests, including language-free and motor-free tests, so that every individual can demonstrate his or her true abilities.

Psychoeducational testing is recommended for:

  • Testing for Learning Disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, visual processing disabilities, auditory processing disabilities)
  • Testing for ADHD
  • Testing for Autistic Spectrum Disorders, including Asperger’s Disorder
  • Eligibility for Special Education (testing for an IEP, 504 plan, SAT accommodations, College accommodations)
  • Special education decisions, such as due process hearings, Independent Educational Evaluations
  • School placement, including admissions testing, or finding the right school for your child
  • Testing to understand behavioral concerns/uncooperative behavior
  • Determining why a child is not achieving at his or her potential
  • Transition Planning (for career training and services such as SSI)

Most importantly, test data are used to create an evidence-based action plan and recommendations. Educational recommendations are reviewed by Dr. Resnik, who also holds a Master’s degree in Special Education.
