Psychoeducational and/or Diagnostic Evaluation

Evaluation involves taking a comprehensive look at an individual’s strengths, weaknesses, and patterns of functioning through use of standardized assessments, interviews, observations, and collection of data from parents and/or teachers. Psychoeducational evaluations can be helpful in diagnosing learning issues, gleaning recommendations for most appropriate treatment modalities, and providing suggestions for support for the learner at home and in school. Diagnostic evaluations can be helpful in determining whether a specific clinical challenge exists (such as ADHD, for example), and what, if any, intervention may be warranted. Psychoeducational and diagnostic evaluations often overlap, and as such, diagnosis and treatment recommendations may be made in either or both evaluations.
