MY SPECIALTIES

PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENTS

Purpose:

If a child is experiencing academic difficulties, a psycho-educational assessment is often recommended to determine the child’s intellectual ability, cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and various academic skills.  The purpose of the assessment is to ascertain what the barriers to learning might be.  In many instances, the difficulties can be explained by an underlying specific learning disorder e.g., Dyslexia (reading disorder) or

Dyscalculia (math disorder), which is identified through the psycho-educational assessment process.  

 

Data from the psycho-educational assessment help to inform the most appropriate adjustments and accommodations in the classroom and targeted intervention strategies.  With understanding, knowledge and needs-specific support, children with academic challenges can have a positive educational journey where strengths are acknowledged and areas of difficulty, addressed.

 

The process of the psycho-educational assessment includes:

  1. A one-hour intake interview with the parent/s where family, medical and educational history is documented.

  2. Viewing and interpretation of all academic, medical, and allied health assessment reports

  3. Approximately 3 hours of testing broken down into 2 or 3 sessions depending on age (includes the administration of the WISC-V cognitive assessment and WIAT-III individual achievement test as well as other standardised testing dependent on presenting concerns)

  4. Viewing and interpretation of current and historical assessment data

  5. A one-hour feedback session with the parent/s

  6. A comprehensive psycho-educational assessment report (approximately 4 hours)
