A comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation integrates psychological, neuropsychological, and educational assessment to give you a better picture of your child. These evaluations include:
A review of records, background information, and interviews to understand your child's past
Observations and comprehensive evaluation in the areas of language, problem solving, intelligence, planning, organization, visual-spatial skills, memory, motor skills, academic performance (reading, writing, mathematics), attention, executive functioning, social skills, emotional functioning, and mental health to understand your child now
A written report, feedback, school collaboration, and follow-up to get your child where they need to be
Independent Educational Evaluations (IEE)
If your child has been assessed by their school district, but you disagree with the results of their evaluation, an Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE) may be requested at the district's expense. The IEE would entail all components of the comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation described above. IEE results could guide your child's IEP team to develop a comprehensive and appropriate individualized program.
Psychoeducational Evaluations for Students with Visual Impairments & Deafblindness
Children with visual impairments (including students with low vision, blindness, deafblindness, and CVI) often have unique learning needs that can be difficult to assess with traditional testing instruments. However, thorough and accurate assessments can help to guide your child's IEP, placement, and interventions. My expertise and specialized testing instruments can help parents and educational teams better understand the unique learning needs of children with visual impairments.
