A comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation is a useful tool in understanding your child’s
ability level, academic strengths and weaknesses, and learning styles. The information
gathered through the evaluation process will help you and your child’s teacher(s) understand
how to help him or her achieve success at home or at school. Academic remediation and
interventions can then be tailored specifically to your child’s unique abilities.
Important note: It is to your child’s advantage that you share any information about prior
testing with the school psychologist who is completing the evaluation. Most tests cannot be
administered within a full year of the last test administration. If a test is unknowingly
administered sooner than one full year, results are deemed “invalid”. Additional expense is
then incurred, as it will be necessary to administer additional tests to your child.
