PSYCHOEDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENTS

        A Psychoeducational Assessment with Edcommodate primarily focuses on the diagnosis of specific learning disorders. It is a comprehensive, unbiased, objective investigation of intellectual ability, and cognitive ability in certain domains such as attention or memory, academic achievement and social-emotional functioning.  The complete psychoeducational evaluation through Edcommodate typically includes the components listed below:

  • Clinical interview with parent or primary caregiver

  • Clinical interview with child/adolescent

  • Review of relevant documents including report cards, IEPs, past evaluations

  • Intellectual testing

  • Academic achievement testing (reading, writing, mathematics)

  • Sustained attention testing

  • Testing of visual and verbal memory

  • Visual-motor integration

  • Information from standardized questionnaires examining executive functioning and social-emotional functioning are included.

        A Psychoeducational Assessment report through Edcommodate will include recommendations to form the basis of an Individual Education Plan (IEP). A Psychoeducational Assessment specifically provides recommendations for educational accommodations and/or modifications as well as restorative educational intervention.

        Once the report is finalized clients are contacted by the primary clinician to schedule a one-hour telephone or in-person feedback session where they are provided a thorough verbal description of what was done, what was found and what it means.  This is done in language that is clear and understandable.  In our experience parents, and where appropriate the client, value our feedback and the opportunity to ask questions and gain clarification on aspects of functioning.
