Comprehensive Psychoeducational Assessment: The comprehensive psychoeducational assessment is focused on identifying the student’s complete profile of strengths and weaknesses as a learner. To address issues of concern raised by parents, teachers, and students themselves, each assessment is customized to investigate the cognitive skill, information processing, and emotional and behavioral factors that influence learning and achievement. These factors include: crystallized and fluid intelligence, short and long term memory, auditory and visual processing, expressive and receptive language, processing speed, psychomotor skills, attention and executive function, and social/emotional/behavioral functioning. Neuropsychological, psychological, and educational testing are conducted. Study skills and academic motivation can also be addressed. Once a thorough understanding of the student’s profile has been developed, causal inferences are made to academic performance in reading, writing, mathematics and oral language. Detailed recommendations are provided for skill development in areas of strength and interest, and remediation and accommodation in areas of weakness.

Gifted and Achievement Assessment: For families who do not anticipate that their child has a learning impediment or challenge, an abbreviated assessment consisting of intellectual ability/IQ testing, academic achievement testing, and an exploration of student interests can be conducted. Recommendations are made for school placement, subject acceleration and enrichment, and talent development outside of school based on student strengths and interests. If areas of weakness associated with learning challenges are discovered in the process, families are informed of options from directly addressing the weakness through remediation to exploring the student’s profile in greater depth through a comprehensive assessment.
