Psycho-Educational evaluations and testing offer information regarding your child’s general intellect, memory, learning style, academic skills, attention/concentration, language, executive functioning (organization, problem-solving, and planning), visual-spatial abilities, and sensory motor functions. Evaluations are an important first step in establishing Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The psycho-educational evaluation report also provides information that is helpful in discussions with schools. These evaluations and tests can also assess the following conditions:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders

  • Emotional Disorders

  • Learning Disabilities

  • Cognitive Disorders

  • ADHD

  • Dementia

  • Developmental Delays



Testing involves a non-invasive process that provides valuable information that is not provided by MRIs or other scans. It usually takes four to six hours over the course of one to two appointments. During this time, a therapist conducts an interview and administers a standardized, written test. Once the testing is complete, the therapist reviews his/her recommendations and also provides a written report.


The information gathered during testing can be used to:

  • Determine neuropsychological/cognitive deficits that interfere with school or work performance

  • Identify cognitive strengths, abilities and learning style to enhance academic success

  • Assist with school accommodations for your child

  • Make recommendations regarding social and learning environments for your child

  • Prepare pre-operative psychological evaluations for gastric surgeries
