WHAT IS IT?
A psychoeducational assessment can identify learning difficulties in learners of all ages, from young children to adults. Learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), often stay hidden and impact a learner’s performance and behavior both in and outside the classroom.
A psychoeducational assessment identifies areas of strength and weakness in a student’s learning profile and provides a deeper understanding of their educational needs. It can also identify Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Intellectual Disabilities, Reading (dyslexia), Writing (dysgraphia), and mathematic (dyscalculia) challenges, and other mental health issues that can interfere with learning. A psychoeducational assessment diagnoses the root cause of a student’s academic and behavioral problems and identifies a plan for solving the problem.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF HIDDEN CHALLENGES
- Low grades on report cards
- Disruptive behavior or difficulty focusing during class
- Difficulty completing schoolwork on time
- Feeling overwhelmed or anxious at school or during exams
- Not achieving results at full potential
- Bullying or rejection at school
Students facing one or more of these challenges may have un-diagnosed learning disabilities or other hidden problems.
