Psychological-Educational Evaluations are comprehensive assessments that evaluate a child’s cognitive and academic functioning. Tests are utilized to understand a child’s strengths and weaknesses and assist the child to perform to their optimal academic level. Parents, schools, therapists, and/or doctors usually recommend a child have a Psychological-Educational Evaluation to better understand why the child/adolescent is struggling to reach their full potential in an academic setting.
