PSYCHOEDUCATIONAL AND NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS
Why an evaluation?
Sometimes, despite hard work or academic support, children struggle significantly with
certain aspects of school. Parents, teachers, and often the children themselves, are left
confused about what the problem is and, perhaps more importantly, how to fix it. An
evaluation is a roadmap which can answer these questions. It helps identify a child's
learning strengths and weaknesses.
What should I expect?
An evaluation consists of a thorough parent intake, interviews with people familiar with
your child's learning (i.e. school professionals, tutors, therapist), and several testing
sessions with your child. Through careful assessment and observation I pinpoint areas
of difficulty (e.g. attention, verbal skills, memory, etc.). Based on your child's unique
learning pattern and personality I make focused recommendations and strategies for
how to improve troublesome areas. I always pay special attention towards including
your child's strengths, as these are often the best way to help with problem areas.
What happens next?
At the end of the evaluation parents are given a comprehensive written report, which
can be shared with your child's school and any other professionals who work directly
with your child. I strive to make my reports "user-friendly" for parents so that the
information can best be used to help your child learn. In addition, I review these results
in a 1-2 hour parent feedback session; this ensures that you understand all the results
and have an opportunity to ask questions. Your child is also given a separate feedback
when the results are explained in an age-appropriate way.
