DIAGNOSTIC EVALUATIONS

Mrs. Fleming provides psychoeducational assessments and ADHD evaluations for individuals 16 years old and up.

 

A psychoeducational evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of a student's functioning in areas that impact learning and academic functioning. These areas typically include aptitude, academic skills, and psychosocial adjustment factors. In addition, such evaluations include an assessment of learning and memory, as well as executive functioning. Most schools, large universities, and standardized testing institutes require comprehensive exams, which provide precise information on cognitive, academic, and executive functioning abilities, if one is to apply for access and special accommodations. 

Such assessments are also useful for "adult learners," such as individuals who are returning to school after a break or trying to figure out how to enhance their performance in their current job. Additionally, tailored recommendations are made in an effort to provide concrete solutions and a plan of action to help the individual move forward.

OVERVIEW

  • Evaluations can aid in identifying individual patterns of strengths and weakness, the presence of a specific learning disability, giftedness, executive functioning issues and emotional behavioral concerns. 

  • They can inform recommendations that will lead to greater academic, personal or career-related success.

  • They can also help an individual determine college majors based on skills, aptitude, and interests.

  • An evaluation may help to determine any areas of improvement or decompensation since the previous testing.

  • The evaluation may be submitted as documentation to support an individual's need for academic accommodations (e.g., extended time on standardized tests) based on what is reasonable and appropriate given the test findings. 

  • The evaluation, which takes approximately 3-6 hours, will include the following: intellectual/cognitive assessment, academic achievement assessment, tests of executive functioning abilities and neurological functioning, emotional/behavioral and personality assessment, assessment of learning styles and skills, followed by an in-depth clinical interview and review of personal history.

  • The information will then be summarized to determine patterns of individual strengths and weaknesses, formulate a diagnostic impression, and provide customized recommendations based on the findings from the testing, which will all be summarized in a comprehensive and detailed report delivered via a PDF format.

​​

  • Fees can vary as each assessment is tailored to your unique needs and testing batteries can sometimes be customizable. Please contact the office for further information. If you are experiencing significant financial hardship, special arrangements may be considered.

  • Insurance is not accepted for such evaluation; however, an itemized receipt may be furnished upon your request.

​​

  • Expedited report completion if available (report completion within 72 hours of the day of testing) for an extra charge. Standard report completion time is typically 2-3 weeks.
