Could Your Child Benefit from a Psychoeducational Assessment?

Is your child struggling with a topic you believe they can master? Do they have anxiety about school or learning? A psychoeducational assessment can help identify potential issues and provide valuable recommendations for breaking through barriers. Also, December can be one of the best times of the year to schedule an assessment at Learning Lab. Learn more below!

What Is a Psychoeducational Assessment?

During a psychoeducational assessment, a skilled examiner identifies a student’s strengths and challenges. This may include evaluation of:

  • Reading, writing, and math skills – especially if these skills are not developing at the anticipated level for their grade or age. 
  • Stress, anxiety, and frustration at home or school.
  • Academic performance that doesn’t match with ability.
  • Capacity for completing work in a timely manner.
  • Working memory or executive functioning skills.
  • Behavior that causes consistent concern among your child’s teachers.

If it has been three years (or more) since your child’s last learning assessment, a follow-up may be beneficial. 

An assessment results in individualized recommendations for supports and strategies that can be implemented at home and at school.

December Is a Great Time for a Learning Assessment

Did you know that December can be the perfect time of year to complete a learning assessment? With winter break finally here, your child can undergo a learning assessment without having to miss school and fall behind. 

Additionally, our Assessment Center accepts HSA (Health Savings Account) or FSA (Flexible Spending Account) to pay for psychoeducational evaluations. If you need to use funds in your family’s FSA accounts before the end of the year, now could be a great time to schedule an assessment and put those savings to use before they expire.
