Psycho educational testing at Learning Tree can pick up on a number of educational problems and identify their underlying emotional or behavioral triggers.
The tests can pick up on a gifted student needing extra challenges in order to learn at an appropriate pace.
They are helpful in diagnosing learning or behavioral issues such as dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), mood disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Psycho educational testing can also be used to conduct autism spectrum evaluations and determine adjustment reactions to triggering events such as divorce or loss.
At Learning Tree, you can opt for one of two psychoeducational tests we provide.
Full Comprehensive Evaluation
The Full Comprehensive Evaluation is often requested by parents or schools. It starts with a parent intake to gather background information on the history of the problem and its overall context, followed by an interview and observation of the child.
Then, the doctor will review the questionnaires and relevant records. They will administer psychological testing as needed to get a clearer picture of what may be going on. Afterward, they compile all the data into a final report and spend about 45 minutes to an hour speaking with the parents or guardians to give feedback on what they have found.
A La Carte
The A La Carte educational testing follows the same pattern as the comprehensive exam but is more focused on a given issue. The final feedback and consultation usually take about thirty minutes. The final result is a report containing a diagnostic impression and possibly a recommendation of further testing that should be done on the issue.
If you are concerned about your child's education and are worried that there may be some type of psychological concern underlying it, or if your school has requested that your child undergo psychological tests, then Learning Tree can provide you with one of these two options to learn more about the issue and come up with a solution.
