Psychoeducational Testing

For the past 12 years, we have been trusted by doctors, schools, therapists, and parents for our excellence in assessment. We provide valid testing through a variety of modalities including: face to face testing by fully vaccinated psychologists, full tele assessment, Hybrid tele assessment (in office). For patients with medical concerns, we can provide testing in the home (in Maryland only).

Psychoeducational testing is designed to utilize the latest neuropsychological research and best practices in education to create a data-based learning support program that is customized to the individual learner. 

Each of our psychologists and neuropsychologists has advanced training in evidence-based assessment. Our team is highly experienced at bringing out the student’s full potential during testing. Our comprehensive testing creates a data-based “road map.” We want every parent to leave feeling confident that they understand precisely what their child needs!

Our Approach to Psychoeducational Assessment

For the past 12 years, our psychologists have been trusted to provide psychoeducational testing reports of exceptional quality. Our reports are highly personalized to build upon strengths and offer detailed recommendations to target areas of need. Psychoeducational testing draws upon the latest research about brain function in order to inform educational interventions (everything from school placement to what specific type of reading instruction will be effective for your child’s unique needs). The recommendations from psychoeducational testing are informed by the science of learning, brain development, and educational research.

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 and co-occurring concerns
  • Testing for Autistic Spectrum Disorders, including Asperger’s Disorder (we use the ADOS and MIGDAS)
  • 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, motivational difficulties or 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, an experienced special educator who holds a Master’s degree in Special Education.
