Why would my child or I need a psychoeducational assessment?
Psych ed assessments are done to answer specific questions such as, “does my child have a learning disability?” or “do I have an attention disorder” or “does my child’s anxiety come from an underlying difficulty with reading?”.
Typically, you, a caregiver, or a teacher notice an area of difficulty. Challenges academically may also become apparent when caregivers receive report cards for their child. A psych ed assessment may also be helpful when a teacher or caregiver notices a child has significant anxiety regarding academics, has difficulty paying attention in class, is acting out, or has difficulty connecting with others or the teacher in class.
The results of a psych ed assessment can often surprise parents as the assessment can uncover hidden talents and strengths that are missed or neglected at school.
