What is a Psycho-Educational Assessment?
Do you have concerns about your child’s learning or progress at school?
Is your child struggling with reading, writing, or math, despite efforts from parents and teachers to help?
Do you notice that your child is working hard but not achieving results at school?
Do you wonder whether your child has learning difficulties that are interfering?
Central Ontario Psychology has a team of psychologists who offer psycho-educational assessments for children and adolescents.
A psycho-educational assessment is an in-depth exploration of an individual’s thinking and learning. Information is gathered for a psycho-educational assessment through in-depth, interviews, consultation with teachers, a review of report cards and other documents, rating scales, one-on-one formal testing, and observations of the child and adolescent.
Using all of the information gathered, a formal report is prepared, documenting results, any diagnoses, and recommendations for home, school, and community. Psycho-educational assessments include a feedback meeting during which the psychologist will discuss the findings and recommendations with parents. This is an opportunity for discussion and questions about how your child or adolescent thinks and learns.
Psycho-educational assessments can be appropriate to understand how an individual thinks and learns at any stage of their school career. We see children in elementary school, high school, and even college and university for psycho-educational assessments.
If you are concerned and want to understand more about your child’s thinking and learning, contact our office to ask questions or book a psycho-educational assessment.
