Psychoeducational Testing

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. Psychoeducational testing yields a comprehensive study of the individual’s cognitive performance. Test data provide a ‘road map’ for addressing the student’s educational needs.  In our practice, we pride ourselves on including personalized recommendations so you can build on strengths and target areas of need.

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

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)
