Psychological Evaluations

We uncover a diagnosis and treatment from a medical perspective

Generally performed by clinical or licensed psychologists who work in hospitals, schools, or in private practices. Psychological Evaluations can include many of the same formal assessments as Psychoeducational and Neuropsychological Evaluations in order to examine your child’s psychological, emotional, and behavioral functioning.  However, Psychological Evaluations are typically intended to guide diagnosis and treatment from a medical perspective, not from an educational perspective.  Clinical psychologists typically do not have a background in education and therefore may not be familiar with schools or the specific accommodations or services that support your child with disabilities in school settings.

Psychoeducational Evaluations

We discover learning styles and guide development of classroom accommodations and support

Generally, Performed by school psychologists or other learning specialists who usually work directly in schools or have a background working in schools. These evaluations typically include formal assessments of a child’s intelligence and a child’s academic achievement in addition to other assessments. Psychoeducational evaluations seek to understand a child’s learning style and then guide the development of classroom accommodations and supports from an educational perspective. Psychoeducational evaluations are generally not as broad in scope as neuropsychological evaluations, and usually do not include formal assessments of the specific domains of cognitive functioning (attention, memory, executive functioning, language, etc). The testing usually does not take as long to administer as neuropsychological evaluations. Because they are more limited in scope, psychoeducational evaluations may not provide the level of data needed to fully assess, diagnose, and recommend treatment for disabilities involving language, attention, executive functioning, or other more complex social/emotional and learning-related difficulties.  They focus more on identifying the child’s difficulties in the classroom (i.e. what is happening) rather than examining the underlying brain origins and neurocognitive processes that are causing the child’s difficulties in the classroom (i.e. why it is happening).

Neuropsychological Evaluations

We examine brain processes in greater detail to provide insight to the "Why" Question

Typically performed by psychologists who specialize in Neuropsychology, which is a field that focuses on understanding brain-behavior relationships and goes beyond school psychology and clinical psychology. Neuropsychological evaluations examine how a child’s brain functions and how that functioning impacts the child’s behavior and learning. Neuropsychological evaluations are typically much broader in scope than psychological or psychoeducational evaluations, and thus usually take much longer to administer. Neuropsychological evaluations typically include assessments of intelligence and academic achievement, but also go even further to include formal assessments of the specific domains of cognitive functioning that are controlled by different regions of the brain, such as executive functioning, visual-perceptual abilities, information processing, attention and concentration, learning and memory, sensory perception, language, adaptive skills, and fine motor skills.  By examining a child’s underlying neurocognitive processes in greater detail, a neuropsychological evaluation can provide deeper insight into why your child is having certain difficulties, what their learning strengths and weaknesses are, and what interventions can be used to successfully address their difficulties both at home and school.
