The PsychoEducational Consultant Group is committed to providing families with a variety of services to support their child’s growth and success. From the beginning stages of identification of need, to reevaluation of a child’s progress and growth, our focus is on supporting each family through their journey. We are committed to evaluating each child’s unique strengths, challenges, and learning styles while maintaining the highest level of integrity and empathy. Our office is a family-friendly environment, and provides us the time and opportunity to meet with families given their scheduling needs.
As licensed school psychologists, our expertise lies in our ability to evaluate children utilizing both standardized assessment measures and a variety of clinical procedures. Our experience in working within public school systems has prepared us in identifying important information needed by your child’s school or pediatrician during the decision making process. We will work with you to help achieve the best outcome while keeping your child’s unique needs in mind.
The psychoeducational evaluation process involves a commitment from your family. While the focus of the evaluation is your child, parents are an integral part of the process. You are an expert on your child, and know them better than anyone else. You have a wealth of information about your child, and can help us learn about their experiences at home and school. Above all, you are your child’s best advocate. You can assist us by discussing your concerns, answering questions, completing a developmental history, and providing information located within their school records.
We complete comprehensive evaluations for the following areas of need:
- Learning Disabilities
- Attention Disorders
- Developmental Delays
- Kindergarten Readiness
- College and Graduate School entrance examination accommodations (e.g., SAT, ACT, GRE, etc.)
- Autism Spectrum Disorders

Appointments are available for families in need of one-on-one consultation and/or screening with one of our school psychologists. These appointments typically last one to two hours. Parents are provided a brief written summary of the discussion, including overall impressions and recommendations. Possible recommendations might include school-based classroom interventions, private tutoring or therapies, or a full psychoeducational evaluation.
Consultation can address a number of topics, including:
- Screening for developmental concerns or Autism
- Screening for Dyslexia
- Review of records and data to guide interventions
- Behavior management planning
Boot Camps are offered to assist children and adolescents with the skills necessary for their success in school. Each Boot Camp is divided into six 90-minute sessions, and are typically held once per semester. Sessions are based on recent literature related to attention and learning, and focus on building executive functioning skills. Session topics include:
- Perception and Mindfulness
- Planning and Time Management
- Organization Skills
- Study & Test-Taking Skills
“The study skills camp helped my daughter identify her learning style, taught her techniques to tap into that style and helped her maximize her learning potential. She became a more confident student, improving not only her grades and ACT scores but also decreasing her stress related to school.”
