Learning Disabilities

Psychoeducational evaluations assess a child’s learning potential as well as specific academic strengths and weaknesses. These evaluations help to identify whether a child has a specific learning disability such as dyslexia, and they are an important part of identifying appropriate academic interventions or instruction to facilitate learning at home and school. Early identification of learning problems is key to a child’s later academic success, and a psychoeducational evaluation helps to identify the specific reasons a child is having problems learning.   Evaluations are also often required to obtain accommodations in the college setting or for standardized examinations (e.g., SAT/ACT/GRE).
